    Consistency!

    Shame, should have been Hamilton’s chance to capitalise on his supposed Monaco prowess, and then on his rivals worse qualifying. Instead he moves backwards, and Rosberg also catches.

    Webber is now third!! but has been on the podium only once..

    Well here is hoping that Lewis wins Canada, one of his favourite tracks, making it 7 winners out of 7 races! The points at the top will tighten up considerably as well if Lewis wins it!

      I think it’s about time.

      It looks like nobody will go beyond three wins this year, considering the pattern drawn by the first 6 races getting 3 wins and being consistently finishing top 4 can be worth a WDC.

        Sorry but MacL seem to be going backwards.

        • matt90 (@matt90) said on 27th May 2012, 16:01

          I think they said before that they didn’t expect Monaco to suit them.

          • dkpioe said on 27th May 2012, 16:32

            only after qualifying. they still probably have the best car with the best downforce, so should have got much more points at this track.

          • matt90 (@matt90) said on 27th May 2012, 17:46

            No, I heard it before qualifying.

          • Solo (@solo) said on 27th May 2012, 20:48

            Monaco is about mechanical grip. Don’t get confused about the heavy downforce some engineers say that Monaco needs. They speak about two different types of downforce but it’s really confusing for the average fan to get what they are going on about.

            The Mclaren downforce comes to life in fast corners not slow like Monaco.
            The race they really lost was Barcelona where Hamilton could go well in free air. Here they never where the best car.

    Now Mclaren and their drivers are having to play catch up after blowing opportunities in previous races.
    To think Alonso was all but written off by Button, although the season is still long, Ferrari have maximised their potential and as their car is improved, they can be an even greater force.

  6. Oople said on 27th May 2012, 15:09

    Consistency also seems key lower down; Rosberg now in the top 5 and di Resta 1 Point behind Perez.

    The Championship keeps unfolding!

  7. Jon (@patomilan) said on 27th May 2012, 15:11

    Hamilton only driver without a win in the top 5…
    McLaren step up to the game, you’v got the car!

  8. Asif (@) said on 27th May 2012, 15:14

    Alonso looking like a genius! Red Bull always seems to be able to rescue something with better strategy and deserve the WCC lead. Mclaren looking like rookies!

    • JCost (@jcost) said on 27th May 2012, 15:26

      I think Ferrari is not that bad. It was awful in the first qualifying sessions of the season but their race pace has always been there and lately their not overall worse than neither McLaren, Red Bull or Mercedes.

      On McLaren, bad call after bad calls until they realize it’s too late.

      • gambits said on 27th May 2012, 16:25

        Ferrari is not that bad now, but it really was that bad before, not only in qualifying sessions but during the race because it’s a very complicated car to drive and far from being the fastest.

    • Arrrang (@arrrang) said on 27th May 2012, 15:28

      +1
      Seems like RB are the only team that can show some speed also outside the cockpit. They sure got some fast thinking people around!

  9. BBT (@bbt) said on 27th May 2012, 15:33

    I expect Mercedes to win Canada, iit should be their strongest circuit over one lap (as long as their tyre wear doesn’t come back to haunt them) and Hamilton in the top three, that should tighten it up a bit more.

    Vettel took full advantage of the accident, he got very lucky there .

  10. Manter MBS (@sridharbhanu) said on 27th May 2012, 15:44

    Consistency gives Force India their double point finish. Both drivers just kept their cool.

  11. Jason12 said on 27th May 2012, 15:54

    Is it not time Martin Whitmarsh got replaced at McLaren, or should he be given more time to inflict further damage?

    • egsgeg said on 27th May 2012, 16:15

      What did he do wrong?

    • dkpioe said on 27th May 2012, 16:38

      stop blaming whitmarsh, he doesnt drive the cars, he doesnt change the tyres at the pitsops, he doesnt design the car. who would you replace him with?? would anyone do any better with the personal mclaren has? whitmarsh is the best man for the job, he has been involved in the team for so long.

      • OOliver said on 27th May 2012, 23:27

        True Withmarsh doesn’t do any of those things. But a team principal should realise a fast car alone doesn’t win races. If you don’t manage your drivers well during races, you get no result. It took him four races to realise they had to work on their pit stops.
        You don’t hope the next race will be better, you make the most of the current race.
        It aapears his mistake in Spain has made him see he has got a lot wrong. If he focuses Mclaren can still salvage their situation but it is a lot more difficult now.

  12. ivz (@ivz) said on 27th May 2012, 15:58

    Anyone else get the feeling its going to come down to Alonso and Vettel?

  13. NKT!!! said on 27th May 2012, 16:25

    Mclaren don’t seem to have the capacity to make good/smart strategic calls, a bunch of dumb fellows in there. Vettel’s move caught them napping. Ferrari’s perfect pit stops are making up for any inadequacies their car might have, plus their race pace isn’t that bad.

    • Jason12 said on 27th May 2012, 18:34

      Since Whitmarsh Mclaren is also poor on the creativity/design side as well. We seeing some great ingenuity from the likes of Mercedes and Redbull. If Whitmarsh is not to blame then who is? What will it take to turn that team around?

  14. Overwatch (@overwatch) said on 27th May 2012, 16:35

    Grosjean and Schumacher have the least number of km raced, even below backmarkers… Roughly 1000 km to maximum 1800.
    Frenchman should try to survive first lap.
    German should kick some butts in quality control department.

  15. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 27th May 2012, 17:12

    This sums up 2012 for Schumacher. Sticks it on pole. Remains at 2 points. Ouch.

    Great to see Rosberg so high up, he’s in with a good shout still.
