I don't know what those want to mean:

Amount of different Grand Prix winners from the first to final race on the grid: 7 (record)
Amount of different Grand Prix winners from Monaco-Brazil: 9 (not sure if record)

but I'm pretty sure monza was shorter than silverstone with a time of 1h 19m 41s

btw nice work :up:

Ah, thanks, you're right, Monza was shorter.

And sorry that other thing was a misnote - 7 different winners from the start of the season; Button, Alonso, Rosberg, Vettel, Maldonado, Webber, Hamilton. Alonso broke it by winning a second grand prix of the season in Valencia. 7 different winners from the start is a record though.

Is RB still crying that Renault engine is not powerful enough?

Is McLaren still crying over losing both championships, despite having a faster car and better engine, and supposedly a better driver?

1. McLaren had fastest car, but RB had more reliable car;
2. Mercedes is better on high revs (high speed tracks), while Renault is better on low revs (low speed tracks). Renault also consumes less fuel and works with exhaust much better;
3. Both McLaren drivers were fighting with each other, while whole RB team was working only for Vettel;
4. RB was better on pit wall;
5. RB was much lucky.

Never said anything about reliability. Also, pretty sure Webber had more wins and ahead of Vettel at one stage, how does this show only working for Vettel?! I guess a DNF when leading a grand Prix is pretty unlucky... But that happened to both teams. The reliability of a car and pit wall functions are a team's own fault.

When I'm talking about luck, I mean incidents with other cars. How many times Hamilton was knocked out by other driver? Vettel didn't have such incidents at all. How many times Vettel was retired when leading?

Webber was fast because Vettel was slow, not because he had the same status as Vettel.

Not enough car speed is team's own fault.

Vettel and Hamilton both had 2-2 race ending DNFs because of reliability, Button 2 (although bahrain may have been a 'new gearbox' retirement), Webber 1.
surely if RB was all Vettel, then Webber wouldn't have overtake Vettel in china in the last laps, would've held the pack up in monaco so Vettel can come back as first from the pits, just to name some?

btw Raikkonen with this "top speed" was passed left right and centre on the monza pit straight, surely because the renault engine is so powerful.

Top speed doesn't matter, when Renault sucks at acceleration out of corners, compared to mclaren and ferrari. So this top speed was achieved at the cost of acceleration.

Not anymore.

That was quite some time ago.
