I think you're probably rather premature to jump on the car looking mighty – the car has always looked good in high temps, and slow speed.
The RB8 did look mighty in Valencia. But as you say, I think it's a little premature to say they're going to stay there or continue said superior pace. They were mighty in Bahrain too, and kind of faded away just a bit. I think Silverstone with it's much cooler weather & completely different track characteristics will give us a better idea exactly where RB stand. The next few races really.
It is a little worrying in the last two Quali sessions RB pulls out a good gap out of nowhere in Quali. Hard to put it down to just the updates too because of Canada. I think the hotter weather definitely helps them but we'll know more in just under 2 weeks.
