Ummm the race hasn't started yet :D

True indeed....

but if ever there was any doubt, the emphasis within the team has already shifted Vettels way.

There was never any doubt about it, he was always the teachers pet.

There was never any doubt about it, he was always the better driver.

I give Webber credit for improving in the last few years but last year he lost the world championship more than Vettel winning it. Webbers personal driver errors are what gave Vettel the title.

As a team they remind me of Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup. Craig was once the Champion and now hes a good back up driver while Jamie is aggressive and always chasing a win. I remember the first time I saw Lowndes race at Sandown for Brocks team and wondering where the hell he came from. No one could get near him, Brock couldnt get close. Not many race drivers stay at the top of their game for ever. A few motorcycle champs have like Doohan and Rossi but drivers usually seem to fade away as experience teaches them that a safe 3rd or 5th is better that challenging for the lead and crashing out.

Its hard to see Webber winning a world title, he needs to get hungry and get a fire inside him, he's too timid, Vettel is aggressive and thats why he wins.

kind of agree... except that Lowndes was a winner from the start and is now perhaps a slightly fading star...

Webber barely won anything , ever.

Webber does not get the encouragement of the team...they want vettel to win because there are many more Germans and the market is massive in Europe compared to here....knowing that, I think he does a great job of staying motivated. He is very mentally tough, and he will win the championship this year.
Vettel got lucky last year, Webber is better and more consistent...take last year, vettel either won or crashed....and let's not bring up the time he tried to take webber out!!
Everything looks better in carbon fibre

Agree with all of that and Webber has heart, I prefer a guy with balls to win :thumbsup:

Its going to be an awsome race tommorow, with the tires im thinking that Button will win. Also thank god that those dreadful Hispania's aren't allowed to race, they are the most dissapointing F1 car I have seen.
