I guess that's correct, although really that was circumstances playing into Webber's hands. Senna's job on Prost was done without weather playing a part. Was just outright pace.
In every case when SV OR MW out qualified the other by a margin of any significance there were factors at play beyond the normal.
i.e. SV having trouble in chassis #3 MW having trouble in chassis #6 in both cases there was a significant pace difference but when examined closely all was not right.
Although SV fans like to deny anything was wrong with #6 and MW fans deny anything was wrong with #3 (there is anecdotal evidence of trouble with both chassis)
However what people should consider here is that MW for many years was considered one of if not the best qualifier in the field.
As A MW fan I dont think he has been at his best in Q since the accident, but even I am only thinking of 1/100ths
SV piping MW in Q time and time again is no small achievement.
Most people who dont rate MW do so based on a driver who for 90% of his time in F1 was in cars that were not capable of podiums.
In his first year in a top car he had GP wins.
In his 2nd he was a championship contender.
That is not the performance of a B grade driver.
Now I dont know if SV is as good as AS but no one ever will.
You cant base it on WDC because MS is king pin there and many of the AS fans would not rate MS over AS.
All I know is he is WDC in 2010
He was in 2010 0.09s faster than MW a driver who I rate very highly.
And I think if SV finds himself in a team with FA or LH he would make a VERY good account of himself.
As for 2011, he will not have a real team mate so it will be an SV white wash and will come down to the RB7 and the magic that is AN
