Mark's luck with RB has been pretty staggering. For both Lewis and Mark - if something can go wrong at exactly the most inopportune moment, it will.

I was sitting at turn 10 yesterday and you could easily, easily see Vettel on the power 6-7 car lengths before anyone else. Watching that corner made me realize that Vettel's success comes from not making mistakes - but his luck is phenominal, and his car is without a doubt in a completely different league to the others. And because he doesn't have to drive it on the edge just to be competitive I have to assume it's that much easier to not make a mistake.

It actually took a lot of enjoyment out of watching F1 seeing that disparity so obvious. I can only hope next year's changes shake things up.

With Mark it doesn't come all down to luck most of the time, it comes down to the car not being able to handle how he needs to push it to try and win. They give him all the stuff they don't need for Vettel, so he's left with nothing but scraps. Seriously, I mean wheels falling off multiple times in a season? Come on.. that's not bad luck, that's terrible work and lack of attention by Red Bull. Webber has had something go wrong with his car pretty close to every race this season, how many times has Vettel? that's not luck.

Vettel says the boos from the Ferrari fans gets to him, but he understands it.

 

If he wasn't such a self-centred ratbag, people would appreciate the extraordinary talent he has.

 

Webber seems only to be there to make sure Red Bull gets enough points to win the manufacturer's championship.

 

1 Red Bull Racing 445
2 Scuderia Ferrari 297
3 Mercedes GP 287
4 Lotus F1 264
5 McLaren Mercedes 83
6 Force India F1 62
7 Sauber F1 45
8 Toro Rosso 31
9 Williams F1 1
10 Marussia F1 0
11 Caterham F1 0

 

If the points were closer between Red Bull & Ferrari, I'd confidently say that Mark Webber would find greater reliability.

Williams F1 used to dominate.  I hope they can score more points next year.

Webber will win one of the remaining races.  :)

Yes Vettel can afford to relax. I think you could see it in todays qualifying. Vettel is generally not that sloppy :)

post #623 of 1308

Wot...???    You mean Red Bulldust will give Mark Webber a fair shake now that the C'ship has been won by Brat Vettel?

post #624 of 1308

Now aiming for 13 to match MS record?

post #625 of 1308

Totally disappointed in Mark Webber. Maybe he needs KERS connected to his traction control.

post #626 of 1308

Kimi to have back surgery and miss a couple races and Massa going to Williams and Maldonado is a mystery.

post #627 of 1308

Lotus investors also urged Eric Boullier to sign Hulkenberg

post #628 of 1308

Lotus investors gonna have to put in a lot of money to pay Kimi and Nico for that to happen. Otherwise they will have to do with pay drivers like Maldonado I suppose.

 

Insane qualification by Vettel again. Destroying Mark silly and the rest of the pack of course.

The last race of the year is about to start.  Alonso has a good chance of winning.

A bit much to hope both Red Bulls would break down. Yet another predictable race. Red Bull can afford messing up and still win comfortably. I hoped for rain but it never came.

Next year will be really interesting.
