    Hmm, I would hope "you can't get him, he's too good" would not be an acceptable demand to Red Bull. They need the best driver in the car, the amounts of money and prestige on offer to the company for good performance are surely too great to allow compromise on that point.

    I hope.

    We shall see, but the silly season starts now. So the talking point perhaps until the end of the season is which driver will take the one open slot in a top team.

    Tbh Webber going to Porsche has been known for months, so I'm not surprised at all. Hopefully he'll have better luck at Le Mans with Porsche than he did with Mercedes LOL

    ANYPLACE where they aren't totally in over-the-top love with Vettel will be better for Webber. Mark's gotta be sick sick sick of that guy and his stupid hat by now! :lol:

    Webber is ass. Good riddance. Now if only Massa would leave with him.

    Webber has been poorly treated by Red Bull over the years.

    Lewis means business, and also Merc lockout = Christian Horner is going to have a meltdown!

    ou have to wonder were Lewsis manged to pull tha lap out. It was a stonking lap almost a half second faster than his team mate, and .6 of a second faster than the Red Bulls. It must have been an almost perfect lap.

    As opposed to Vettel who disobey's team orders? Do you know what would happen to most employees who disobeyed orders at work?


    Who comes together with his team mate (Turkey) and thinks it was Webber's fault when it was plain for all to see Webber was the innocent party.

    Looks like Pirelli will have some serious questions to answer. One tyre failure in a race ok, but three rear lefts on different cars.

    Most employees don't have his talent. When you're as good as Vettel you can do as you please.

    And yet the team still has Vettels back. That just goes to show you how little much little respect they have for Webber's "talent". :lol:

    Vettel is Helmut Marko's 'golden boy', so of course the team are going to side with him to avoid any conflicts with Helmut (and therefore the fizzy drinks company that pays the wages, who would obviously side with their fellow Austrian).

    Well you certainly heard the crowd when Vettel pulled over. But it should have been Hamilton's race. I don't think the Red Bulls had the pace to catch him today.

    And not for the first time Hamilton's team managed to vastly improve his car's set up in time for qualification! Let's hope he has good race pace.

    Hopefully Webber has a good start and doesn't lose a million places before the first corner, Hamilton's tyres don't disintegrate, and Vettel's gearbox destroys itself again, so that we can have an awesome HAM/WEB/RAI podium.

    A good result for Hamilton. But unfortunatly points are not given out on Saturday.
