The Pretence Is Over
Red Bull has always maintained that they have no team orders, their drivers are free to race each other, yet in a race for a few points that would mean very little to Sebastian Vettel but could mean a great deal to Mark Webber, the latter was told to stop racing and let Vettel have the second place that Mark had earned on merit. I guess it just proves what the fans have known all along, Red Bull has one rule aabout racing when Webber is le...Read Full Post »

Some get it right, some not so much.
I had started an editorial on the blown diffuser debate but half way through, Mark Webber gave a statement which covered all the points I wanted to make however qualifying was to see a bad joke become a running gag as the the official stance on the ruling changed faster than the weather. The final word seems to be, 'We don't know what we're doing so maybe we will let everyone else decide for us.' (Not necessari...Read Full Post »

It was the worst of times, it was the best of Times.
The Canadian Grand Prix got of to a bad start with heavy rains. The Red Bull's started on the front row but Webber's day was compromised when his car was hit by Hamilton, requiring him to fight his way past slower cars for yet another race.

Rain is the great equalizer and the wet track allowed Michael Schumacher to turn in the type of drive we have com...Read Full Post »
