Think this will rumble on at Red Bull for a while, or perhaps it's already been brewing for some time; Remember Webber's comment after one of his wins?, "Not bad for a number two driver?"


Ferrari/Alonso made a huge fuck-up, no excuse for it.

McLauren tweeted afterwards that Hamilton was 'Welcome to stop by anytime'

Have to wait 3 weeks now for the next episode

because alonso deserved to win last year

the fact that he ignored team orders today and done that to webber shows how much of a pig he is.

a few times ive heard him on the team radio giving out and moaning like a child because someone is quicker than him.

he whinged last year aswell in the german gp because hamilton passed him

he done the same at texas after pulling across him trying to block him and failing.

what a clown i hope any1 other than him wins this year and it'l be a great season for me

Thought qually 3 was going to end up being a complete farce there for a while. The tyres are really going to rule the strategy for the race. Webber starting from the back of the grid for failing to provide a fuel sample. The plot thickens

Qualifying is getting very close to being consistently boring now. I know it's had many changes over the last 10 years or so, but I think it needs another one now. Q3 is meant to be the most exciting part, and it's the least.

On the plus side, with the tyre differences you alluded to Colm, it should make the race very interesting - especially with the Red Bulls/McLaren's not performing, and Mercedes/Lotus/Ferrari doing quite well.

He's still a very good driver even without the Red Bull. If thats the case then why has Webber not won the championship ?, he's in the same car as Vettel .

never said he wasn't a good driver.just said he's just nowhere near as good as the likes of alonso or hamilton etc

everyone knows the red bull car has been the strongest the last few years.
last year both vettel and webber were almost always top or close to the top times consistently in practice,qualifying and the races

and webber was never that strong of a driver.plus he's the oldest on the grid now at 36 years of age now he's unlikley to have the same spark as vettel at 25
