He was pretty damn good last year when you think about it, 3rd best car in the hunt for the title, lead in the championship midway through, then it just fell aprt… DNF in Hungary (5th place) and Spain (2nd place), stupid, needless crash in Monza when he could have waited and Low Downforce passed Massa, Button and maybe challanged Fernando, stupid crash in Japan, Singapore was costly too, though I beleive that was Webber’s fault.
So yeah, 2010 was great for a while, and but for a stone in the wheel rim in Spain (18pts) and a bit of maturity at Monza – maybe get a 2nd or 3rd place and he was champion. (I think…)
Obviosly he wasn’t though the result was Vettel, Webber and Alonso ahead but he drove very well.
Put it this way, Vettel, Alosno and Hamilton will be title faves next season no matter what before the season starts – that shows the calibre of all three drivers. (and indeed Mcl, Fer and RBR)
