I remember watching mansell duke it out with Berger (iirc) at the last Mexico round. The track had a huge sweeper, and Il Leone went around the outside of Berger ftw.

It will continue to be an awkward season for the Redbull team.

Same here...although I was never a fan of MW, this made me sad.

But would Iceman move to red bull? It is a competitive chassis and he wants another championship. I think Kimi's decision would be weighted by how he finishes this season out...I don't think the toro rosso drivers are good enough for a better chassis. I wouldn't mind seeing sutil or another driver from the back get a go at it.

Yeah, I am pretty sad too. I always liked Webber, since he flipped the Mercedes CLK GTR at Le Mans. Though Red Bull has given him great chances at being champion, they have shafted him and favored Vettel (worst case was when they took parts off Webbers car and gave them to Seb).

A Porsche Factory driver is a great job. He has a good 20 years left in him driving for Porsche. Much longer than he could in F1. Walter Rohrl is as known for his Porsche career as he is for his rally career. This is a good move for Webber personally.

Kimi to Red Bull? Making room for Alexander Rossi to move up to Lotus F1?

Wow, completely forgot that was Webber who flipped the CLK GTR I don't honestly thing Red Bull ever gave him the same opportunities at a championship as they did Vettel the entire time he drove for them. I forgot about Rossi moving on up.

Funny Hamilton was talking about wanting to drive for Ferrari at least once in his career, just after moving to Mercedes no less. I know he meant it more for down the road but at the same time it's sort of a jab at his current team like they are only a stepping stone for him.

Webber had 2010 WDC in his grasp and dropped the ball Korea 2010 Bet he wishes he had that one back.

Sutil with RBR makes me laugh. Imagine how many ppl he could stab w/ RB in his veins

Who's going to win at Silverstone this weekend?

Rosberg was fastest in 2nd practice, with Webber following ahead of vettel.

Will Mark jam a multi21 up the golden boy's ass now that he has nothing to lose?

That's what I would do.

I've never been a Webber fan, but I'll be cheering for him this weekend. I hope he hands vettel his ass.

Best race I've seen in awhile. Pretty funny seeing the crowd erupt as Vettel's gearbox went.

Perfect storm for Rosberg. Everything just fell into his hands nicely.
