Hello everyone! I wasn't online for a day, can't believe this thread is still on.
[ AND CERTAINLY CAN'T BELIEVE THE "WEAVING" DEBATE
HAS BEEN STILL GOING ON AND ON
Anyways, I wanted to share a point, I couldn't do it early on; I am sure it is fair to say that McLaren certainly had an advantage in straight line speed, they did so all weekend. The "experts" and commentators were tireless in siting that it was down to the F-duct mechanism! I don't know how much fact there is to that, but whatever it was, the advantage was clearly showing in the race; Hamilton really did most of his overtaking in or around the back or the starting straight, so much that he was able to go flat out down the straight, break very late at the hairpin, run wide, and still gain a position.
But, after he came up to Sutil, we really couldn't see any of that till the end! I mean, sure, Sutil did fantastically well defending his position, but still, Hamilton couldn't even make an attempt to pass, couldn't come side-by-side even once. On the contrary he said to his team on radio "This guy(Sutil) is just too quick on the straight" !!!
Was that the case, that the VJM03 was quick (people are saying though, that the car is good at overall aerodynamic efficiency, judging from the peformances so far), or was it a case of sour grapes from Hamilton, that he JUST WASN'T ABLE TO PASS HIM!!
