Only if LH now spends the best part of a decade kicking around near the back of the field in rubbish cars *whilst no-one wants to sign him*.
I'm not sure that's true - at one point he had at least 2 teams wanting his signature - big names, too. It was some really dodgy management that buggered things up there. Also a bit of a shame that, although he was being argued over by big names, it was when said names were not really at the peak of their game.

I also believe he had a long-term deal with BAR / Honda, which meant it wasn't so trivial to move elsewhere when it was obvious the car wasn't going to meet expectations.

OK all that accepted, what have RB and Newey done in the 2012 mid-season break to manage to pull out a 0.5 - 1.0 sec advantage over the other improving teams. Bendy front wings aside what have they/has he seen that others have missed (given - McLaren, Sauber and Force I, some improvement, Ferrari and Lotus - static, Merc apparently going backwards...) Has anyone done a detailed technical analysis of the season's obvious aero-changes??
Gary Anderson pointed out a unique new development on the RB rear wing that stalls the air lower down. Bet they were chuffed about that!

Is that the Double DRS development taking the air to the lower part of the spoiler, above the gearbox?

I hate this 'Vettel only wins because of the car', and yet in the same breath demand Mclaren upgrades the car to enable Button/Hamilton to win.

But that makes sense if you take that view on things?

Maybe so; but then you need to argue that Hamilton/Button only win due to the car.

Just saw this too.

I feel like a parent. I'm not angry, just disappointed. Why does he have to be like this?

Of course. I'm sure some would rather not believe the car is responsible for their heroes success though.

Ahem... Jenson didn't follow Lewis in the first place. He looks a bit (more) of a tt now.

As someone who likes him, I do wish he'd stay away from social media sites.

Ron Dennis said what your really looking for is an intellect. Lewis doesn't have that. Him and Mercedes are perfect match biggrin

Yes, but then you would be accused of hiding things from those who posted screenshots on websites. He shouldn't have said it but is now between a rock.....

i think most people would... but then you look like an idiot. LH held his hand up and admitted the mistake - which is the honorable and adult thing to do.
