Yeah, RB 1-2 in quali again thanks to their double DRS; Vettel will win, Alonso and Hamilton fighting over 2nd; and Grosjean only to score 1 in his personal first corner ten-pin bowling session.

Another fascinating post about the subject!

Have you got anything interesting or different to say at all?
Or do you just want to have one opinion on these thread so that PH can reflect your own narrow view of the world?

Seriously if you look at that You Tube Vid, I don't think the woman interviewing Vettel was too impressed either, but her perception/feelings don't matter obviously.
It was not a smart or mature thing to do on live feed, I did not find it amusing but cringeworthy and disrespectful - so sorry that I have a different opinion to others, and that you find it so difficult to accept.

PS Grow up
Oh dear. It was merely meant in jest - Lee has been doing the F1 interviewing for almost as long as Vettel has been driving in F1 and I assume they know each other fairly well as a result - it was a bit of a joke. You know, ha ha? It's not like he went motorboating or anything. Jeez.

You are both as bad as each other and this forum would be so much better if neither of you were part of it.

Oh hang on I've got a button for that.

Disagree. The MP4/4 was simply a step ahead all year, on average it qualified a second ahead of any car, at Monaco Senna was something like 2.7 seconds quicker than any other team.

McLaren have not had that sort of performance advantage this year, although I would agree they have squandered opportunities.
I see your point but the points table wouldn't show a second per lap, nor does it need to, if the fastest car with the fastest driver and the most astute driver isn't at the top of both tables then as a team they have underperformed.

I don't think McLaren have had the fastest car this year, certainly not consistently, in some races yes, but not the entire year. Couple that with Jenson "balance" Button struggling for a third of the season and some unreliability thrown in for good measure.

MP4/4 won the WCC 199 points to 65, it didn't just dominate, it utterly destroyed every other team. Over 16 races they had 3 DNFs and 1 disqualification between the two cars and ten 1-2 finishes. They only didn't win at Monza due to Schlesser t-boning Senna as he re-joined the track.

That's what my crystal ball is showing at the moment... Probably fancy a bet on a Button win.

You must have the same Crystal Ball as mine... smile Button will be at much longer odds than his team mate too.

If RB run away with both Championships then Whitmarsh and the chump from Williams should be given the tin.

That is very Football-FanBoyish. Players underachieve so sack the managers.

Red Bull was absolutely dominant in Valencia, but look at their performance in the following races. I think Suzuka was a fluke more than anything else. We don't know who will be dominant in Korea.
.
Maybe you've spotted something which I suspected last weekend. Team Mclaren hugely underachieved based on immediate past race form and created the impression that Red Bull are now uncatchable. Could be very misleading based on that one off in Japan.

P-Jay said:


Is it too fanboy to ask for a LH win and SV to be Pastored and FA to be Grosjeaned?
.
Yes it is as it would be if you wished for a someone else to Button it!

ucb said:

Would to see FA win just for his ability to have dragged the donkey around to impossible results all season
.
Why no credit for Massa's fine effort last Sunday in the no.2 "Donkey"? Fan-Boy bias ??

Fingers crossed for a half decent race.
Indecent races are much more interesting. Deploy the Grosjean and bring on the former Maldonado and make it so ... hehe

Seriously, come on Falonso ~ my WDC money's on you and it's looking an increasingly "iffy" investment just lately ... and stop crashing into Raikkonen and Grosjean.

Watching Lee Mckenzie interview him is always hilarious, he just flirts with her a bit and puts her off completely hehe
The interview with the red dress was genius.
My favourite was the classic 'you have my number why do you never text me?' hehe

What do you think of Rosberg, Hulkenberg and Glock? scratchchin
Indifferent to Rosberg, prefer Hulkenberg to Di Resta and Tim O'Glock is great!

A five slot drop back on the grid helps a bit too.... that does not apply to only Mclaren.

Whitmarsh can be a hindrance though for McLaren, he spends so much time watching what the rivals are doing in the hope he can find out some information he takes his eye off the ball of his own team.

I can see Vettel taking this one in his stride and the championship lead with it.

I have a feeling Kimi will be strong here too.

1. Vettel.
2. Kimi.
3. Alonso

Has Kimi ever driven here? I don't think he has, not that that will have a huge effect on his performance. I still expect him to finish in the top 5 (assuming the new exhaust doesn't ruin the car).

vettel? one of the easier guys to like i'd say, if you've seen any of his interviews with Lee Mckenzie or Jake Humpries and DC. very accessible, funny etc. at least, when he does ok in the race. proved his detractors wrong saying he can't overtake, etc.

sits easily in my top 3.
The finger waving really gets on my nerves, if it wasn't for that he would be ok.
Lewis pumps his fist when he wins, but no one complains of his fisting.. wink
