Question to ask is, that was the most significant upgrade which RBR mid way in the season that make it a winner?
The significant upgrade to the car was the Coanda Exhaust, as soon as they had it working. It made the car more stable in mid corner and exit, which allowed Vettel to unfold his full potential.
However the race pace of the RB8 did not seem to bad, at the beginning of the season, if I remember correctly the car was seemingly easy on its tires in the race, they just had problems "turning them on" for qualifying.
