Well I just heard Ross Brawn's post race interview and he says that Michael was talking over the radio and as a result made a mistake by missing a gear change and hitting the limiter which let Hamilton through. Perhaps we can infer that he had no intention to tone the defense down as suggested by the radio messages?

I want to say that about fastest car discussion. I think Vettel can make fastest lap if he wants or need. Bu he was far away from rivals and he wasn't need it. I think so. We cannot say mclaren was realy fastest. If Webber weren't out I am sure he would do fastest lap. Because he was at back. And if he could cool and weren't hit to Massa probably he would be one completing podium and so I weren't have a correct prediction about 3. finisher. :hihi:

Vettel : Best drive of the season. He excelled himself, and not just because the Red Bull is a quick car. He is obviously delivering something above and beyond the performance of the car, just look at his teammate for comparison.



It's impossible to perform beyond the performance of the car. He is however getting the maximum out of his car, unlike Webber and deserves alot of credit for that.

Oh please, we all know Massa isn't 'allowed' to be faster than Alonso ;) At least Red Bull say they let their drivers race against each other.

not if you factor in the amount of time that poor Massa lost at the chicane for reasons outside his control. In a sense that's Alonso's problem: he wasn't much faster than Massa and hadn't Massa been punted by someone else there would have been very little between the two, and that's not a compliment for Alonso :hihi:

Well, Paolo, glad to see you. I think Massa is gooood (and brave!) but every time I say so, I get a spank. Me, the fool that believes all of them are good (even Sato! that speaks volumes).

_FoCuS might be right about the sandbagging, but at Monza? Who knows. Sure, the Foc knows his Formula One and he seems a focused guy, but I think RB took the chances to the limit this time, so... that's the reason I brought the lap times to the attention of the forum. At Monza the wings and the diffusers and all the "rich guys tricks" are less important.

Dev, I love your posts.

Lyria, why should Massa not be allowed to be faster? What have you heard? I would read it gladly.

That is true, but I didn't want to be boring and obvious to Gerhard Berger. :p :hihi: :hihi:

Saying and doing are two completely different things though :p

It's nothing I have read Ciro, it's just a belief I hold. Ferrari like to have a number 1 and number 2 driver so history tells us and we all know which driver fills those positions currently don't we? Even if they don't come out and say it.

Yes, I think Felipe has been told to move over enough times or had it suggested that he should move over enough times or had the wrong fuel put in or had sand in his wheel bearings enough times to know his place in the team. Of course, he's totally free to race Fernando. That is until he's told not to. Goodness, sounds a bit like Red Bull doesn't it? Of course, it is a team sport and it is fit and proper that a team decides who should win and who should play a supporting role. It is the natural state of things.

And this avitar was was made for posts like this: :evil:

Indeed. And as we say down here: "I know you believe you understand what you thought I said but I'm not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant".
