    Is he really team leader? I think McLaren’s current lineup is one of the few with genuinely equal status. And Button is now ahead in the championship too.

    Great one today, somehow managing to link Schumacher’s first retirement and his aggressive defending!!

    I reckon Button, in current form, is in the top three.

    Overall though, not based on current form, he would drop down a bit.

    Have to admit I didn’t know who Jimmy Waddell was, but here’s what the guardian had to say about him in 2004.

    “Jimmy Waddell, the race team’s composites expert, drives steamrollers in his spare time.”

    I’d say put it on eBay with a reserve, that’ll answer your question fairly quickly. Doubt the “unwashed” thing will really help though!

    Don’t think so. Ferrari and especially McLaren are too close. If he does dominate, I think he’ll deserve it.

    Hopefully next year will be more close-fought, like some of the last few races have been.

    Agreed, the whole thing is just a bit pathetic.

    I’m sure if there is a loophole and they started doing this, the FIA would close that hole almost immediately.

    Been following the site since seeing it here, and only now noticed this gem in the bottom left corner!!

    mschumi Michael Schumacher

    I often prayed for catastrophic structural collapses while we were under the same roof Barrichello. My 0.3 second average speed advantage over you would have got me out in time.

    Forget the numbers, show ‘em some in-car footage around Monaco! :)

    Renault.

    Would you rather win from pole or come third starting from the back?

    Wow Ral, your version isn’t forced at all. No offence, but if the F1 slate put something like that on the site, I’d stop reading today and never go back.

    Anywhere near me… other than that, it really doesn’t make a difference as all I’ll see are the TV angles anyway.

    @infy Isn’t it natural for a former F1 driver, whose job it is to talk about F1, to mention himself every so often?

    And I’ve noticed plenty self deprecation from him too.

    @f1paddocks That’s an interesting way of looking at it – too much technology makes it too reliable – most people complain that too much technology takes away from the drivers.

    But surely having more reliability puts it a little bit back in the hands of the drivers again. Like you say, drivers might adapt to problems or possible failures, which is an element of skill we mightn’t have seen as much of before.

    Reliability can only be a good thing in my view… who wants to see drivers win reces by default?
