lol what a joke. Webber hold up everyone behind him after his stop, at least up to P5 or so. He was really slow. Vettel gained positions from Webbers slow pace. The first stint from Webber was much better, only Rosberg was able to follow him.
Yeah, now that you say it, what a joke of a comment you made there.
If Rosberg was so much faster, why didn't he jumped Webber on pits? Everytime you have a faster car and pits earlier, to come back with fresher/faster tires, you jump the guy ahead.
Do you wanna know why Nico couldn't do it? It's very simple. It's because Webber, with old SS, was faster than Nico, with brand new softs.
Plus, you are entirely wrong when saying Webber was holding everybody and that's the reason Vettel jumped people. In fact, Vettel with very old softs, was lapping way faster than everybody in Top6(who had new softs at the time) and nobody was being held at the moment.
As I said earlier, Webber only hold people in the last 20 laps or so, and that gave a foolish impression to some of Rosberg having the best pace of all, when if fact, it was only Webber being too slow at that point.
Anyway, back to what reallly matters right now, Mercedes did a great job this weekend. A trouble free one with lot's of running on both cars for the FPs. The drivers let them down this time. The car probably could have faught for 2nd here
They´re fading in qualifying since Bahrain. Monaco was a exception but I think that was more thanks to the drivers.
Maybe that´s the price for improving on sunday (at least that´s what AMuS already says since weeks)
I'm thinking that since it's happening. Monaco is a driver's track, the place where the driving makes the most difference. It simply doesn't make sense for W03 to be very good in Monaco, while not that good at Montreal/Valencia.
Monaco have mostly slow corners, with a couple of medium ones(which are not W03 strengh) and very little considerable straights. If W03 performance in Monaco was down to the car, then it should have poled and won Montreal and Valencia as both circuits would suit W03 even more because of having similar slow corners(as in Monaco) with the addition of long straights(where W03 excells).
