Well it's a rather familiar line-up for the first 3 at the US GP.
Vettel, Hamilton and Webber.
Even without his issues it seems as if JB didn't have the pace to compete with Lewis.
Of course next year McLaren will be without one of the best drivers in the world (or who are considerd the top which most people place as Vettel, Hamilton and Alonso).
Sure the stats might not say Lewis has outclassed Jenson, when you compare points, DNF's etc.. but they only tell half the story. Lewis is usually ahead of Jenson when he has his DNF's, so Jenson actually gains points when Lewis is forced to retire.
