Horner more than likely saw this too, so yeah I believe that they will focus more on Vettel. What webber has to do know is try to psychologically intimidate Vettel from the start because if the car is the quick on low fuel then Vettel will be at the front of the grid all the time and that will be major problem if Webber who relies more on race craft, wants to pass Vettel. If the car is not front row quality then definitely Webber will shine more.

maybe he also got a big knock on the head in the bike crash he had last year

Newey will undoubtly create a car with lots of down force again, but will we be able to create a car that is as good on the other elements of a track. It seemed that by the end of the year we were fast in the slow mechanical stuff as well, ie the final sector in Abu Dhabi. I just hope we have a car that is good on all tracks straight out of the box.
It seems we will still have Renault Engines in 2010, and there have been a few comments about its fuel efficiency, however i was under the impression our fuel efficiency was not good. There were several times when we would quali with what would seem like 3 laps more fuel than the Brawn and then come the race would have to stop on the same lap or just one lap longer than the brawn. Now its possible we altered our strategy to suit and stopped early, but i just thought the Renault was thirsty.
Either way lets hope the car is a cracker and can fend of the challanges from Ferrari and Macca. Im not overly concerned by Mercedes as the car will be a brawn developed machaine. They have not had the resourses to create as good a car as Honda did for them last season. Mercedes money will help affairs but that will take a year or so. I dont think we need to take too many guesses as to why Jens jumped ship. If it was going to be a front runner then they would have a better line up than Rosberg and a vacant seat at this point in time.
There will be a lot of carry over performance from the 09 to 10 cars, and hence we should be well placed as by the end of the season our car was the class of the field. So if we nail everything, get a bit more reliable we should go well.
