Re: Nothing has Changed!!!

Also McLaren has taken a very genuine step forward.

But it was quite alarming how fast the Red Bull's were in race pace today. Webber flew through the field on what looked like a very bad day for him. The second a car moved out of the way he was just setting purple sectors.

Re: Lewis Hamilton

Hamilton appears to have done a Webber from 2011.

Good pace all around but lots of little mistakes which make a big difference in the end.

Re: Mark Webber No Kers Again

And he beat Golden Boy regardless.

Surely Red Bull don't think this will wash long term?

It honestly is probably just a coincidence. With their current performance levels they need both cars operating well.

Re: How many pole positions for Hamilton in 2012 poll

Re: The Official McLaren MP4-27 Thread!

Having now seen Hamiltons lap i'm confident that he could have gone even faster. He was hardly even attacking the curbs and was not using all of the track, i'd say there was a few tenths easily, it was just a banker lap.

I think its obvious they are the pace leaders.
