I look forward to your apology for saying I said something which I didn’t then. Newey was important to the success of Vettel/Red Bull but the same applies for literally any world champions ever.Rockie wrote: ↑Sat Nov 28, 2020 7:09 pmIt was a common trope of the period saying you didn't call it that does not detract from it as all we kept hearing was it was all Newey.JN23 wrote: ↑Sat Nov 28, 2020 7:01 pmI guess we have different views of what constitutes a title fight. If you’re able to win a title going into the final race I’d say that counts.Rockie wrote: ↑Sat Nov 28, 2020 6:49 pmHe wasn't in the title fight in '10 he crashed out in consecutive races, also in '12 he wasn't the only one who had mechanical issues or pitstop disasters eventual winner Vettel was let down by alternator problems as well and several unjust penalties.
On a side note, still waiting for you to tell me where I called the Red Bull’s ‘Newey Rocketships’. Didn’t expect you to reply somehow.
Also I wont call needing all the contenders not to score as being in the title fight.
Hamilton didn’t need all the contenders not to score. He needed one not to score and the other two to score less than expected, which one of them actually did (Webber).
