But as driver if Vettel bring out a victory to Webber like in Mal with that overtake I like it. I hate how he consider one that have done something for that team and gave him the 2010 title in the last race. I remember my ex co-workers said me in Monza, for his 1st victory, he seeked them to say thanks for their work at the time of F. BMW, an important step in his career. Now he seems win drugged. For this I dislike him for now, if he will show different character I'll appreciate him as for the Toro Rosso victory.

110 % agreed on that!

While the current form of McLaren is not much to talk about, THIS is something that's definetly worth a mention even if it's currently not confirmed yet.

The nostalgic effect is already on. I think that F1 has changed too much from the big McL-Honda era of 1988-1991, plus they would need a superstar pair of drivers. Senna and Prost were the most fierce rivals of all, but that's why they made McL-Honda so dominant: to beat each other. Do you guys see Button-Perez worthy of it?

I honestly don't see Button worthy of McLaren right now, let alone in a few years. He's there MOSTLY because he's a champion who happens to be English. I'm not sure about Perez, he's got potential but he needs to step up and start beating a team-mate, who's hardly world-class. I'd also expect Magnussen to get a drive in the future, replacing either of them.

I think the McLaren team have other problems now: 1) make the car work with the front suspension system, 2) find a and unique technical director. If the situation will not be improved within a year or a year and half add the issue of changing engines can be bad.

I trust Ron knows what he's doing. Like I've said many times before, Whitmarsh is the chief for the cameras but we all know that behind the scenes, it's still old Ron calling the shots. It's not the first time they've made a bad car and they always managed to bounce back, years like 2006 and 2009. As far as engines go, as long is it's a long-term partnership, I can see it working. Maybe first year might be a bit rough but since McLaren will basically be Honda's "factory backed" team, I trust they'll find a way as long as Honda make competitive engines.

Many times Hamilton did bad things I remember Ron was at the successive gp. Smile But in 2009 Ferrari and McLaren made bad cars due to 2 different technical regolamentations. :x

As usual, the Circuit de Monaco seems to be well-attended, not only due to the Cannes Film Fesival. Big Grin

I couldn't help myself but LAUGH at Ferrari with the Alonso-Perez situation. "We're offering Charlie to give the position back". Aren't you generous, Scuderia. :lol:

Also, Button's becoming unbearable. When you're engineer tells you that there's nothing wrong with your rival's overtaking maneuver, maybe, MAYBE, it's time you stopped complaining? Seriously, if I wanted him out at the end of each year till now, I'd love it if they kicked him out after this race! :roll:
