Only a matter of hours before Merc turn up the fuel mix and decimate the rest of the field, again...

I don't think he'll beat Hamilton over a season like that... don't see it happening.
I think we might see the true pace of the Merc's tomorrow... see how long Hamilton will take going from the back of the field to challenging for the podium*

*assuming he's not taken out or has a mechanical

Besides Nico walking away with it, it was a fun race to watch.
Good fight back from Kimi and Ricardo.

Yeah, was a fun race to watch!  Just wonder how the Red cars had done had they not gotten into each other...

Very cool.  I'd love to hear see where they stuck Vettel.

Perceived shittier car? :dunno: I don't get it either.. The '05-'06 Renault was no slouch.

Vettel's run was aided by superior car, don't think any other car on the grid could match the raw pace of the RBR. Schumi's 2000-2004 run was definitely aided by a superior car except maybe the one BMW year where they were pretty competitive but inconsistent. I'd say Ferrari had car superiority from 1999-2004, and Schumi would have had '99 except for the broken leg and missing a handful of races. Hell, even Irvine almost won a chip in the F399.

I think they're judging it based on raw talent...and they probably are taking into account Alonso's results in the Ferrari during Vettel's 4 WDC runs where Alonso consistently came within points of the WDC while his team-mates (Massa & Kimi) were no where near him.

Did the Honda finish enough races last year to make that determination?
