    Without a doubt, Vettel on Rosberg.

    Girts, shouldn’t Buemi get pole for Bahrain now that he lives there with his uncle? :P

    Pretty sure VET ran a very different setup(gearing and engine) to WEB in Monza. Also, after German GP this year VET reverted to the prior race’s setup not taking the upgrades from Germany. At this point there is no way VET and WEB are having the same setup. So I’m not sure where this sharing WEB setup comes from

    In no specific order
    * Not counting starts as passes
    ** Not including DRS passes
    *** Only counting completed passes, passing attempt succeeds and the driver gains a place
    1) Hamilton on Button – China 2) Schumacher on Hamilton – Monaco
    3) Hamilton on Alonso – Britain 4) Hamilton on Alonso – Germany
    5) Webber on Alonso – Belgium 6) Vettel on Rosberg – Belgium
    7) Vettel on Alonso – Italy 8) Webber on Alonso – Singapore
    9) Webber on Sutil – Japan 10) Vettel on Hamilton – Korea

    *Replying after a very longtime in the forums* I don’t believe RedBull will be dominanat in 2012. The way McLarens raced in Suzuka it’s pretty obvious they have made a huge leap forward and RBR is no longer the faster car. 2012 is going to be almost same rules minus the EBD. And with Alonso quipping about Youngest triple world champion, I guess Ferrari have couple of tricks up their sleeve. For RBR to be dominanat in 2012 they have to really have some efficient innovative part that could give them a edge. And it is just too early to predict that.

    I beg to differ about the crash, it was the combination of speed (long straight) and running over debris (low grip) that resulted in that infamous Clash-of-the-Bulls. Not to mention WEB’s ‘I-have-the-racing-line’+’Thou-shall-not-pass’ stance. If VET can be blamed for the clash in Turkey, then its HAM’s fault for his DNF in Singapore-10. Also, it wasn’t exactly a CHOP, he just lost the car with nowhere to go.

    As for Singapore-2010 throughout the race the gap between VET and ALO was between 2-4 seconds. If VET indeed had the fastest package he should have at least got the fastest lap there, but he didn’t. And Singapore is not exactly an overtake-friendly track.

    Problem with RBR and VET’s is that the closing speed is nowhere near the leading car on a long straight due to its straight line speed deficiency. Since it’s nowhere near, no lunge-in is possible for overtake. There is no risk in a non-existent lunge for a non-existent overtaking maneuver and so VET doesn’t take risks. He can’t overtake on slow corners as the leading driver only has to park the car on the apex. Even if a car shows up on the inside all the defender has to do is make the trailing car run out of road. Overtakes on fast corners is more traction dependent – still not RBRs forte.
