    With the new tyres the fastest lap is set by the guy with the fresher tyre at the end of the race. FL is quite useless for analyzing performance these days.

    But if McLaren has a quicker car then why don’t they get the result in? That is what matters. Look at it this way, if Vettel wins just one race more in Valencia he can remain second with Hamilton in the lead for every singly race until the end of the season and he would still win the championship. THAT is how big a lead he has already. And i say that because i doubt that Button is his Championship contender really, he has had two good races in a row now (outperforming Hamilton i mean) but over the course of a season Hamilton is most likely going to beat Button on points in the end. Of cause it is an unlikely scenario, but i think it puts it into perspective quite well.

    But it will also slow the others down, so some of Red Bull’s advantage might be lost because they are said to use it better then the others, but i don’t think McLaren will be able to overtake them on pace. I hope they won’t ban it. They had the chance at the end of last year. It is not a safety issue, so leave it alone and wait for the end of the year because it is very unfair to change the rules mid season just for the sake of it. It has no purpose.

    I think it has something to do with the venues. The classics like Monaco, Canada, Spa, Monza, Interlagos, Silverstone I always get excited by the result and to win those races is really something that a F1 champion needs to be complete, i think as a fan. Where the standard copy paste Tilke tracks means nothing. That is just another small step on the way to the championship. And i think it is because the venues are just not special enough, they all look the same and there is no history there and we all know they will be scrapped when they can’t pay Bernie enough anymore.

    I don’t think you need to change the championship in general i just think we need more unique tracks in more special places, decided partly the fans and in some great scenic locations with a track that is very demanding for the driver.

    But that is just my theory. I don’t know since I weren’t around back then.

    @Ratboy ah okay i see. I just looked up a picture of a 1996 Benetton and the shape was exactly the same, but you are right it must be a 1998. Though the engine in the car i linked to has a V8, where the 1998 has a V10. Soo.. it may be a 1998 chassis with a 1996 engine fitted? I don’t know, but it seems a bit weird.

    @Ratboy it looks like it to me. Just a slightly different livery. But if it isn’t a ’96 Benetton what is it then?

    My dislike list, in no particular order.

    L. Montezemolo – i just really hate everything he stands for.

    F. Alonso – just seems arrogant

    E. Jordan – most of the time i think he is great, but some times it is just gets too awkward

    The guy who writes Hamilton’s speeches. – i want to hear his own words!

    H. Marko – after Abu Dhabi 2010 he said something like “i didn’t care which of the drivers won, as long as it was a Red Bull driver”.. why is it that i just can’t believe that?

    F. Briatore – guess why?

    R. Barrichello – complains too much.

    The ladies on the way to the podium – it is just too fake.

    The guy who decided that Santander trophies was a good idea – again fake, ugly and no history

    B. Eccelstone – focuses too much on money really and fake rain? really?

    H. Tilke – just don’t design exciting tracks
