Re: The 2012 season conclusions thread ... (ongoing)

Lewis Hamilton is still very fast and doesn't crash when he starts at the front.

Re: Where would Alonso or Hamilton be in a Caterham?

Completely ignoring the fact that the 2009 season was one of the closest ever and the gap from first to last was usually around two seconds or less... In relative terms, the Caterham is much, much further off the pace than the 2009 Renault was. OP - If Kovalainen struggles to get within a second of...

Hard to say, but all we know is that over the course of a season Alonso would be 1 point behind Hamilton.

Re: A reminder as to how far Hamilton has come

I've always respected Hamilton. He he is a top driver for sure. He was maybe a little bit overhyped in 2007 and 2008 and people forget he was essentially a rookie. It went to his head and lead to erratic performances from him but he seems to have his head in the right place. I suspect that having Bu...

There have always been 2 schools of thought about this. 1. The chassis was never problematic and Vettel was just getting beaten by Webber outright and 2. The chassis was problematic and RBR giving it to Mark signified that he was being restrained with inferior equipment. Take your pick. And yes, Vet...

I cannot wait to see Vettel completely melt down this year. He is no doubt running back to base demanding several things including preferential treatment, despite looking inferior to the #2 car this year so far.

Good performance by Mark today, should give him a nice mental lead over Vettel. Webbers been faster in Quali and now leads him in the points.

Mark lost out waiting in traffic for 5 seconds in the pits, but apart from that had the pace for a podium. Only a matter of time until he delivers.

Either Seb is in very bad form or Webber is in very good form. Mark looks to have the slight edge this year. Which is strange because people kept saying Webber was past his prime last year, yet he's out qualifying his double world champion team mate and leading him in the points.
