and you people think I am bad
This is was FAR from MWs first "legit" win.
However it was one of his best because as a race watcher (as as we heard form MW himself after the race) it just didn't look like Mark was going to be able to do anything about FA.
This was an illusion however, as FAs great start and domination was inverted when HE was on softs and the other drivers on the harder tyres.
It was a damn fine pass however, especially given his inability to pass MS in the previous race and the RBs relative lack of top end speed.
How does making a small mistake in Q or getting lucky with safety cars or any other part of a race weekend make one win less legit that the other.
Now if they were gimi wins where 10 cars in front broke down...well then you may call the win illegitimate.
However.... even if a win came because 10 cars in front SLID of the track or ripped up their tyres doing faster laps than they should have, I would consider the win legit.
Damn.... do we not count SVs run of stunning wins in 2011 because well... he had the perfect car for his driving style so they were not legit wins..WTF.
Great drive By MW
Hope he can get some good results at his bad tracks this year because that is the only way he has a shot at the WDC
