    Now that Red Bull will need both its drivers to score and cant afford to dial back webber’s car, will we see a more accurate view of the difference between webber and vettel?

    Well, looks like winter times were actually very representative of the teams’ pace. I feel vindicated in my predictions for Williams with Pastor’s qualifying. Ironically, people have been running pastor through the mud as a hack while many people thought Senna deserved a chance much more than him. Not saying Senna won’t improve, but I think people should start admitting that for the amount of money he brings he is a pretty good deal. He’ll never win anything but he is competent with the potential to score regularly.

  2. Williams qualyfing 6 10ths off the Redbulls!!! Thats more surprising to me than seeing Grosjean in 3rd, given how dominant Redbull where and how shockingly bad Williams have been in recent years.
