I must have been watching a different practice on friday morning then!
granted the fuel levels were unkown, but you can tell when they are laden with fuel when the times drop around 4.5 to 5.5 seconds a lap...and the Bulls where still rampaging down 130 flat.
You get the gist though Raymond, I dont think many can dispute that the RB7 has the most usable downforce of the field...and this does help in the wet.

Yes he had the best car, but he was also the best driver all season. When the car was not the best, he still got it on pole or won the race for the most part.

I must admit that i'm one of those who criticise him but he has just won my heart
I had to download his wallpapers immediately and made them my desktop wallpaper.
I must say he'll go ahead to break records.

Fastest car, luck, whatever, he beat his teammate and that is the only measure that any other driver has.
He could have just as easily got the best car and lost himself the championship.

I think Vettel's 2010 season was a little more on par with Jenson's 2009. The difference is that Button did everything he needed to in the beginning, while Vettel did everything he needed to in the last half of the season to win.
The key similarity to me is that both drivers ended up in a position where they _had_ to produce to win the title. Seb did it in the last race, Jenson did it the race before.
What makes a champion comes down to a moment of make or break, and both drivers did this.

In a lot of the races the McLaren was even faster; Spain, Hungary, even Suzuka. These were, to add salt to the wound, circuits where RBR were at their best last year - with qualifying deltas of anywhere from 4 tenths clear to 1.2 seconds clear.
