Red Bull Spoil Brawn's Party

comment on the article

A one two from Sebastian Vettel pushed Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello back into 3rd and 4th to spoil what would have been a dream start to the season for Brawn.Both Red Bull drivers drove great races but Mark Webber did particularly well as only a year ago he broke his leg. Heikki Kovalainen proved why McLaren need him by outperforming Lewis Hamilton to take 5th ahead of Lewis in 6th. A pretty good day for Red Bull,Brawn and McLaren but another awful one for Ferrari- Nil Points.

Well its not going that well for my beloved Mclaren but the change of rules have certainly broken the Mclaren Ferrari monopoly at the top.

Scrap all the speculation and bias and we now know for sure several things about this season.
1. The, so called huge advantage of the diffuser, was nothing more than that 'so called', blown up by the teams who realized they had been left behind this season.
2. This I have already said but needs repeating. To win this WC. someone is going to have to drive their socks off.
3. Vettel (or the car or both) have the edge on Button in the wet.
4. Red Bull are going to mount a serious challenge to Brawn and it's going to be fascinating to see how it comes out, with Brawn on one side and Newey on the other.
Conclusion. Isn't this just a great season already, with the big guns all struggling and 'unsung heroes' popping up every week.
P.S. Get real yourself lorus. You have no idea whether that's true, as by your own admission, we never know for sure who's best, because we never know for sure, how much the driver is doing and how much the car is doing. Who can say one way or another whether Vettel won today because he drove better than Webber or Button or Barrichello in the wet, or anyone of those top ten. Don't forget many of those drivers spun, some, like Hamilton more than once. Vettel didn't.
PPS, I remember saying most of last year, I wouldn't be surprised if Kimi hung up his gloves at the end of 2008. It's looking more and more as if he should have.

Or Davidson and Legard could switch places, better still Legard could do the commentary for the grand national next year

Yet again - pathetic coverage of this event by the BBC!!
What was so important about Andrew Marr that we had to miss the 'post race' press conference?
Ridiculous!!!

How many times did we miss the conference on ITV so they could go to Coronation Street or something?

At least we won't miss something like Damon Hill taking the lead of a race in an Arrows with the BBC.

As long as I can see the race without interruption I couldn't give a monkeys about the rest of it.
