Congratulations to Redbull. Does this make it the 4th most dominant car in history? Mclaren won 15 races out of 16 in 1988, Ferrari won 15 out of 18 in 2004, 15 out of 17 in 2002, , Upto yet Vettel has 13 out of 18 and will win Brazil so thats 14 out of 18. What a car. As soon as the tyres were changed they've won every single race.....

Yes, Red Bull is like the 3rd or 4th best car this year.

I can't wait for about 10 years from now when they make one of those "secrets of" documentaries and we finally find out exactly what it is that makes this generation of Red Bull (RB5-9) so quick. I'd bet that, whatever it is, just like the ground effect skirts of the Lotus 79, it's surprisingly simple.

Slightly off topic, but I've written the GP2 season review for GP+ (£)

Oliver Weingarten ‏@OWeingarten 1h
Yday was informed about a potential US #F1 Team, and today in a different State, someone unrelated mentioned the same name behind it.


He's the secretary of FOTA

Me too. It will be fascinating to see what they've been doing that's lead them to dominate the sport for 4 years.

vettel drives the best car how it should be. Well I say that, I reckon he could lap everyone in the field if they let him, the car is that great in his hands. Webber just hates the blowing, hates the tyres, hates formula 1 and hates his life. lol.

That's been the story of this season. Vettel and his car. Webber must be quite frustrated. His teammate winning all the races since the summer, three consecutive titels. And he struggels to get off the line without losing too many places.
