Not for long. Schumi also beat Rosberg fair and sqare this season. But Schumi does not cry about it. Rosberg is getting the same like Ruben Barricalo.

One would expect that a 7 time WC beat a guy who hadn't won a single race far more often...
Little Nico is still in front and will most likely stay there to the end of season.
The lead in qualifying is as overwhelming as it was between Schumi and Rubens, just the other way...

Just like he tips Button to keep the edge over him.
& Vettel over Webber & Alonso over Massa & on & on

Not too much of a tip is it?
My tip is Hamilton cant overtake without f**king somebody up!

Hamilton is such a talker, he will never be a champion again, there is too many "better" drivers with competitive cars now.

Stop worrying about qaulifying, lets just watch the season ahead of us. Shumi is to good, with to much experience and is definatelly going to show the world this year, why he is a seven times world champion. Respect is earned, and i think as a seven times world champion, he deserves that much from everybody. Go champ!!! No driver in the world, will ever have your resume.

If Hamilton was only half as good as he thinks he is, the championship would be his from day one.

Lewis only missed winning the WDC in his rookie year by only 2 points, but in 2008.....well.....success!!

I know pisshead that you must have thorougly enjoyed that.

Oh.....by the way Dumbass, Alonso doesn't think that Lewis is too bad, but in reality quite good, especially when he compared Hamilton to Sebastian Vettel. Fernando said, " I know he is a two time world champion, but he is still...SLIGHTLY BELOW...the level of Lewis."

Lawrence, I would agree with you and Fernando,Lewis is far better than vettel and Button proved that to us all last year. I don't see this year following last year,Redbull will not have the car to get them out of trouble.

Hey Gaz.....how the hell are you?.....fine I hope. I will somewhat have to agree with you, but if Newey has found a way to exploit existing exhaust regulations, that could be very bad news, for the rest of the field.

I am fine thanks,like they say good and bad days.You can be sure Newey will have found something but I believe McLaren and Ferrari will be fighting extra hard and I don't see Vettel getting a large jump on them all this year and Hamiton won't make the same mistakes this year. It should be a good fight this year.

I believe that you are correct Gaz.....Red Bull and Vettel won't have the advantage that they had last season, and we're in for as you say, a good competitive season.

Vettel has said in an interview that their grip level is down a lot but by how much, I can't wait to find out. Downforce will be harder to find this year with only wind tunnel help,it will be down to car design to see who is quick. There is a rumour again Hamilton could be on the move from McLaren if this years car doesn't work well on the F1 site,(Interesting) will he head for a Newey car?? or stay. I DON,T like the look of this years cars exceipt for the McLaren so I hope the car works well. WE will have to wait for the first race to see which teams have done well in their car design and those that haven't.

I have been lucky enough to have watched F1 from around 1966 and the most important part has always been the car and having a speed difference or handling difference around the corners over other teams. If you look back over history all winning drivers have had that. Senna,Schume,Hill,Hamilton,Alo nso,Button,Vettel,the lists goes on but the rules are getting much harder and so is the tech side to beat these days, to get an advartage over the others as it comes down to luck and not making any mistakes. So is the driver as important, not so sure because the car is still the winning factor, I think. What do you others think ??? Can someone win WDC with not having the best car in F1 ???

Senna proved that you don't need the best car to win.

Hi DavidH64, In which team because in his time at McLaren I would say it was far the better car at the time or so close it made little difference and had some 1200hp and manual gearbox like all other cars of the time until Williams and Newey came along with computer tech and changed the game of F1 and was why he tried to get into Williams for so long. I would say McLaren and Honda had far better reliability at the time. Please don't get me wrong, Senna for me will always be my favrite driver of all times and I have most of his races still today.

Toleman. He beat Prost a couple races. The Toleman was for crap car. If not mechanical issues he could have easily seen the podium more. Then again with Lotus. Albeit a better car, but still the McLaren was the one to beat.

If testing has been any indication, I think you'll see MGP in the mix with them at the front too.

DavidH64,I think we are on different lines here, yes you don't need the fastest car to win a race, weather,or just luck can make up the difference but to win a WDC then you need a car which has an advartage over the others, which was my point. Going back to your post a lot could happen this year and RedBull could be beaten in every race, as I think it will take them sometime to get use to the lack of grip in their car but I might be wrong.

Agreed. But must admit, what Senna was able to do with a less than stellar car and get on the podium speaks volumes of his ability.

I'm eagerly anticipating this season. I think with the new reg's we will see a WDC that goes down to the wire. Vettel will have to really prove his mettle that he is truly a WDC, and that it was not all about a ride that stuck like glue and had the power advantage.

Is Vettel really Baby-Schumy, or was it all about the car.
