Re: Driver of the Spanish GP?

I cant wait for a race where Hamilton is behind Nico by less than a second with better tyres and 8-10 laps to go. I think it will put all of this to bed. We may just see this in Monaco. But that wouldn't put anything to bed because you can not pass at Monaco Somebody better tell Adrian Sutil then.

Ricciardo will lead into lap 12 when his pit crew will replace his wheels with 4 wheels of cheddar cheese, Dan will struggle to hold place wrestling with the awful degradation of his cheese wheels and eventually fall back to 14th.

if you have any reasonable amount in them i'd be selling, not because i think williams will do badly, but because your risk/reward at this point means your gaining capacity is most likely somewhat limited, but you could easily lose it all at melbourne

Yeah from interviews you get the feeling that another season like they've had is unthinkable to him, but as others have said; this is the year it will happen if it indeed is going to happen.
