This sums it up nicely. Personally, I think we have the right amount as it is.

Re: Vettel/Red Bull-Reanult's 2011 superiority exaggerated

Whilst there is no such thing as an 'easy win', the RBR enjoyed a massive advantage in qualifying trim, and whilst the McLaren was on par with the RBR in race trim for many races, when you lead from the start, in which Vettel did fifteen times it makes things easier. Instead, I would argue that Vet...

Re: Vettel/Red Bull-Reanult's 2011 superiority exaggerated

Interesting thoughts..

Maybe Webber's issues were down to the fact that as he qualified further down the field (in comparison to Vettel), the car didn't like to sit in the dirty air?

A problem that Seb didn't really have too much in 2011 !!
