    sebs scored almost 60% of his 2010 points in the first 6 races of 2011, he has almost double that of lewis hamilton!

    Sebastian is about two race wins worth of points ahead now. However I don’t think he’ll win too many more races after this. Mclaren are level with Red Bull if not better on race pace.

    • Maksutov said on 29th May 2011, 15:28

      Regarding points, that remains to be seen as Hamilton may yet get a penalty…

    • Atticus (@atticus-2) said on 29th May 2011, 15:57

      Could be. McLaren (or on circuits where mechanical grip and/or engine power counts and softs are used exclusively Alonso) just needs a clear race.

      I mean of course they are going to start behind Vettel (and probably Webber too), but ideally they could use DRS and pass them to win.

      Ideally…

      But I think the tides can turn, in the last few races the race pace of Red Bull wan’t great – but crucially they managed to win somehow. Maybe in the races coming they are just going to post some successful updates and will have the initial advantage.

      Luck has played its part it todays win than it did in any of the last few races. This is where close championships are won, and this is how big point advantages become impossible to turn around.

        can i just say one thing about thing about this quote;

        (or on circuits where mechanical grip and/or engine power counts

        what really annoys me is the whole powertrain thing. when DC goes on about the mercedes power besting the renault engine. same as when horner said it last year.
        lets get one thing clear;
        all engines are very very very near to 760-770bhp. after reading a james allen article on the subject he claims the differences between the mercedes and renault engines are less than 3 tenths a lap. i.s LESS OF A DIFFERENCE THAN IF ONE CAR’S KERS ISNT’T WORKING, AND THE OTHER’S IS.

        thus can we please stop referring to the whole mercedes power, ferrari power nonsense, when in truth it’s a rather small differentiator, or advantage, if any. that is all.

        • Dipak T said on 30th May 2011, 15:22

          I think hes referring to circuits where such differences are magnified, like Monza, which would serve to nullify the Red Bull advantage in efficient downforce.

        • MinusTwo said on 30th May 2011, 17:42

          Totally agree Timi. This whole engine power thing is blown way out of proportion.

          Plus I dont understand why people feel they know which engine is fastest. Aero has such an effect on top speed that I dont think there is anything that we as fans can see on track that truly indicates which engine is best.

    Great races, horrible championship.

    • David BR said on 29th May 2011, 15:43

      +1
      Not Vettel’s fault but we’re seeing some brilliant races (without rain yet!) but the championship looks close to being wrapped up. Webber’s complete absence of any threat to Seb is shocking. Still, I think we’ll see McLaren start eating into the lead soon (presuming Hamilton manages to calm down from today).

    • einariliyev said on 29th May 2011, 16:27

      second that. at least the races arent walkovers. also doubt red bull will level off as brawn did in 2009.

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 30th May 2011, 9:07

      Well, at leat its pretty close for runners up :-(

    • DVC said on 8th June 2011, 0:01

      You win 5/6 you deserve to be that far ahead. Enough said.

  4. The New Pope said on 29th May 2011, 15:33

    Great job by Sauber and Kobayashi this year!

  5. KNF said on 29th May 2011, 15:37

    I hope it doesn’t end up like 2002 or 2004…

  6. Guelph (@guelph) said on 29th May 2011, 15:47

    Vettel by himself might win the constructor’s title if this keeps up.

    Even if he doesn’t turn another lap he’s probably wrapped up a top 5 finish in the driver’s championship already.

  7. I really, really want Ferrari to win the title and I won’t give up on them until it’s impossible but apart from that I really don’t care that one driver is running away with the title. The races are so good unlike 2009, 04 and 02 that I’m just enjoying the best part of F1- the racing.

    • damonsmedley (@damonsmedley) said on 29th May 2011, 16:08

      The races were pretty exciting in 2009, Steph! But I have to disagree with you about not caring that Vettel is running away with it. Once he has it wrapped up, the remaining Grands Prix will feel very bland, no matter how much action there is. :(

      • Did Suzuka 2005 feel bland?

        • damonsmedley (@damonsmedley) said on 29th May 2011, 16:47

          Can’t comment, I never saw that race live. ;) But I can imagine there must have been a feeling that it was all well and good, but at the end of the day, it’s for nothing, which is a shame.

          • Michel S. (@hircus) said on 29th May 2011, 23:00

            I think Steph’s point is that often the leading driver feels liberated to take risks after the championship is wrapped up — thus giving us even more exciting racing, as long as the focus is not on the WDC.

            The constructors’ championship is often not wrapped up yet — this year, for example, it could drag on, as Webber has been doing poorly — and likewise, at every race so far, if we ignore Vettel at the front the races are mighty interesting

      • AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 29th May 2011, 16:32

        It depends for what reason you’re watching it. I have no favouritism so I never feel disappointed, I just enjoy the spectacle of the sport and the midfield battle.

  8. Atticus (@atticus-2) said on 29th May 2011, 15:52

    WDC /over.

  9. snafu said on 29th May 2011, 15:54

    the diffuser clamp down might change everything!

  10. Fixy (@fixy) said on 29th May 2011, 16:01

    If you cover up the first line it’s perfect!

  11. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 29th May 2011, 16:29

    Vettel really is destroying everyone. The last couple of races he has had to fight for it more but deserves it regardless.

    Nice to see the fight for no. 2 is tight and Kobayashi still best of the rest…and above Schumacher.

  12. Eggry (@eggry) said on 29th May 2011, 16:53

    Now I’m pretty sure it would be another 2002.

  13. OEL said on 29th May 2011, 18:54

    Thanks a lot Hamilton for destroying Massa’s already extremely slim title hopes. :(

  14. JustAnF1Fanatic (@justanf1fanatic) said on 29th May 2011, 19:08

    at least williams finally got some points….

    • Michel S. (@hircus) said on 29th May 2011, 23:02

      Less than they deserved — and while I rate Perez above Maldonado, the latter richly deserved the points he should have gotten today — his improvement over the past couple of races has been quite significant.
