No, it's a Dyson. We have a Dyson, it's called the Dyson in our house??

Re: Drivers want you to think they have the worst car ever

Nobody can really outdo their machinery. A car only goes so far it can go. The fact that Massa's relative gap to Alonso narrowed later in the season suggests that Massa wasn't on top of his game earlier in the season and wasn't able to extract 100% from the car. It's not like Alonso was able to ext...
