    LOL Mclaren dropping to 4th. Amaizing how wrong has it gone for them since the first couple of races.

    • baldgye (@baldgye) said on 8th July 2012, 14:55

      and its all been of there own making…

    • Klaas (@klaas) said on 8th July 2012, 15:28

      Yeah, and all that in the light of their big upgrade package for this race.

    • JCost (@jcost) said on 8th July 2012, 15:28

      If their pit stops were all as good as of today’s, they should be much better. However, their race pace need urgent solution.

      • sato113 (@sato113) said on 8th July 2012, 19:50

        if their pitstops had been like that in all the previous races this year, I’m sure Mclaren would be leading both championships.
        amateur team this year.

        • OOliver said on 8th July 2012, 22:07

          True, its like having the fastest pit stop when you are only finishing 20th. They needed this speed in the first 7 races. They are fastest in the pits now, but are dropping like a stone on both tables.

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 8th July 2012, 16:38

      Funny how after all these years, McLaren came out with the car to beat at the start of the season, only to throw it away in their pitstops!
      If they don’t come with something that works in the next race, It could very well mean the end of their championship hopes. Vettel, Alonso and Webber have all been consistently getting good points so far and are getting pretty clear from the rest now.

    Lotus ahead of McLaren for the third! Noice!

  3. sumedh said on 8th July 2012, 14:41

    Things looked so close 2 races ago! Now everyone seems spread out! What happened to 2012? :(

    • davidnotcoulthard said on 8th July 2012, 15:15

      Well, the 2012 Canadian GP in it self was “terrible”, compared to 2011, it’s ending and/or it’s red flag period (should’ve browsed the web while waiting, like I did during yesterday’s red flag).

  4. OOliver said on 8th July 2012, 14:42

    Shame on Mclaren.
    Blown opportunities, arrogance that their perceived advantage will last.
    They have not been able to develop the car because they don’t know what direction to take.
    They have taken themselves out of both championships.
    Great job.

    • egsgeg said on 8th July 2012, 15:50

      I guess you work for them and know exactly what direction they are taking?

    • babis1980 (@babis1980) said on 8th July 2012, 19:47

      I would say exactly the same thing for Mercedes. The car looked so good until bahrain…..

      In my opinion the best racecar throughout the season is the Lotus….but they are the one team yet to win…. pity.

  5. Eggry (@eggry) said on 8th July 2012, 14:42

    I had doubt whether Webber could maintain his pace or not but I think Webber is now serious contender. Also Dominant performance of Red Bull in Valencia looks like circuit-oriented one. but unpredictable tyre behaving(the prime was faster than the option no matter how old it is) is disappointing.

    I think Webber and Alonso was evenly matched but just separated because of which they choose to start(or run last stint?). Poor performance of the option is the key of the race.

  6. Prisoner Monkeys (@prisoner-monkeys) said on 8th July 2012, 14:48

    I think we’re defiantely moving into a new phase of the championship – Alonso vs. Webber. It’s going to be interesting to see how Red Bull handle this, because Vettel has made up bigger gaps under more pressure in the past, but the more they slow Webber down to let Vettel pass him, the greater the gap to Alonso will become, because Alonso being Alonso will take full advantage of that.

    • JCost (@jcost) said on 8th July 2012, 15:36

      Already?

      McLaren is off-pace but I’m not counting them out, they still can improve their car and be up there again. Red Bull is very good so making it an Alonso vs. Webber after race #10… what about Vettel?

    • egsgeg said on 8th July 2012, 15:54

      Webber does not have great form in the third and fourth quarters of the season. That said, neither has Vettel had great form in the third quarter in the past. Alonso tends to shine in the final two quarters (his favorite tracks)… and he is already ahead.

      I just dont see Webber staying consistently ahead of Alonso or Vettel. I believe Alonso’s main competitors are still Lewis and Vettel, although more so Vettel.

      • Fer no.65 (@fer-no65) said on 8th July 2012, 20:55

        Mark does seem like track dependable. If he likes the track (Monaco, Silverstone), he’s mighty. But he always struggles in Valencia and Singapore, for example. Tracks he doesn’t particularly like…

        A big boost in his confidence could revert that, but with Alonso as strong as ever, and considering how good he is at the “grabbing what I can, and taking advantage of other’s problems” game, makes Mark the dark horse.

        • Oblong_Cheese (@oblong_cheese) said on 8th July 2012, 23:25

          Last year Webber finished 3rd at Singapore. That’s hardly “struggling”. And we’ve already had Valencia where he placed 4th, which isn’t too bad.

          • Eggry (@eggry) said on 9th July 2012, 6:24

            However Webber did not so often finished ahead of Alonso later part of 2011 even though he had superior car over Alonso. I know Webber didn’t like RB7 than Vettel but Alonso has better car now as well.

    • Aussie Aussie Aussie said on 11th July 2012, 3:53

      I see 2012 shaping a little like 1986: just as Mansell and Piquet took wins off each other to let Prost take the title then, Webber & Vettel will take wins off each while Alonso gets the juiciest points finishes Ferrari will be capable of this season. My money is on Alonso.

  7. carbon_fibre (@carbon_fibre) said on 8th July 2012, 14:55

    It looks like the season is shaping up like 2010.Alonso VS Red Bull.

  8. Klaas (@klaas) said on 8th July 2012, 15:08

    If Mark keeps going like that Helmut Marko will be forced to take away his car bits and give them to Vettel. Ferrari/Alonso should be happy with this result and focus on Vettel in the Championship because RedBull aren’t gonna tolerate Webber’s defiance for too long.

    • Aussie Aussie Aussie said on 11th July 2012, 4:00

      “Webber’s defiance”? You mean Webber’s superiority to Vettel at Silverstone on track in both qualifying and on raceday. Red Bull surely knew what they were getting when they extended Webber’s contract last year, especially after his press conferences where he virtually congratulated the likes of Alonso and Hamilton for the wins they achieved. He said, if I recall correctly, “at least somebody’s got to take wins off Sebastian” or words to that effect. They knew they were getting a No 2 driver with the mentality of a No 1, and I’m sure they saw this as a way of putting a rocket up Sebastian Vettel to ensure he didn’t become complacent.

  9. Rahim.RG (@rahim-rg) said on 8th July 2012, 15:17

    Oh Man…Look at Raikkonen….One win and he’s into this…

  10. Nirupam (@nirupam) said on 8th July 2012, 15:18

    Great to see Massa 4th, “for sure” this should serve a big boost for him!

  11. ME4ME (@me4me) said on 8th July 2012, 15:27

    Great weekend for Redbull, Ferarri and Lotus. Terrible weekend for Mclaren.

  12. JCost (@jcost) said on 8th July 2012, 15:46

    McLaren from Hero to Zero! Where are the Silverstone updates? They need to react ASAP before it’s too late. By react ASAP I mean scoring more them their competition on the next 5 races combined to be in a better position into the last quarter of the season.

  13. Ron (@rcorporon) said on 8th July 2012, 16:31

    Good job from both RBR drivers, and Fred is making the best with that Ferrari. Turning out to be quite an exciting season!

  14. Tete said on 8th July 2012, 16:50

    If I’m not mistaken the Ferrari will have a big upgrade for the next race or the race after the next race. They will have another diffuser, floor , etc. so the key is the team that brings the most updates for the remaining of the races. Red bull already presented a b specification in Valencia so I think it will take a few races for them to come up with more updates

  15. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 8th July 2012, 17:06

    Good to see a bit of variation in the constructors. How do Lotus not have a race win yet? How do they gold that position with 4 DNF’s from Grosjean? Madness!
