I tuned in F1 today to watch a race but instead saw high priced SCCA Autocross. Adrian Newey (true genius that he is) has figured out it is a waste of time/money to design a racing car. What you design is a car that runs well in clean air on a dry track and you hire a good time trials driver (Vettel). Then, you qualify first, get out front at the start on Sunday and you never have to race with anyone. That way you never have to worry about dealing with true racers like Fernando, Lewis and Kimi.

Proof of Adrian's strategy is demonstrated when it rains. The RBRs just become another car and the real racers compete against each other for the win.

Bernie talked about installing equipment at some of the tracks to simulate rainfall during the race. Maybe he should consider that for India.

On the same note,if Lewis had our suspension he wouldn't have had an anti-roll bar failure and would have walked the race;):D

I am REALLY disappointed in you guys. I call the double world champion a "good time trials driver" and no one takes me to task. Maybe I should have said more.

The only reason he's ever won a championship is because he is faster than Weber. If his teammate was Fernando or Lewis or Kimi, he would be to the team what Barricelo was with Schumacher.

If a team hired Newey and me, I'd be a double world champion (bit of a stretch there).

The (not so) simple solution to this problem is to stop drinking RedBull and convince everyone you know to do the same. ;)
