Re: F1 2012 thread

Can't believe you wasted your time typing out all that tripe.

He was unlucky to not get second because of the safety car that immediately followed his second pit stop. Don't see what you can't comprehend about that. I'll reiterate for you - Vettel acknowledged after the race he was fortunate to get the jump on Lewis, and it was because of the safety car. If there was no safety car, or if it had come out a lap later (after Vettel had pitted), Hamilton stays in 2nd (after that round of pit stops). Anything beyond that is just speculation, whether you want to admit it or not. As for his first pit stop, he was still in second (effectively) after his first pit stop, that pit stop was a bad one because it cost him 8 seconds to Button and effectively any chance of challenging him for the victory.

Yes, he had 2 disastrous pit stops. Anyone with a modicum of common sense would've realised what I meant, it was the TIMING of the pit stops that made them bad, not the skill of the McLaren pit crew (why would I question that? How many other teams have the balls to do a double pit stop when they're 1st and 2nd on the grid).


On an unrelated note, I guess we'll see who's the better driver of the two at the end of the season, given that the two both appear to have title contending cars at the moment. Guess what? If you were to ask me who the better driver is right now, i'd say Vettel, but that doesn't change that Hamilton had some bad luck with the safety car in this particular race. He definitely has a point to prove this season now that he's got a competitive car. This should be an interesting season, it's just a shame Alonso (the best driver on the grid) has a piece of trash to drive atm and will probably be off the pace for at least the next few races.


Just saw your edit, how can you "bandwagon" a sport? Literally one of the most retarded things i've ever read. I've been watching F1 since I was around 8 or 9, back when Mika and Coulthard were driving for Mclaren - not that it matters AT ALL. Though just the sort of pointless, misinformed and childish insults I expect from you when you're trying to argue against something even Vettel himself agrees with me about :
