Pretty sure thats bullsh*t.
Befeore every race Horner claims Redbull are closing the gap and Seb is happier with the car and every race the opposite happens.
I'll believe it when I see it.
Well Seb could be comfortable. He's been driving well lately, there is no reason to assume he isn't comfortable.
As for them catching Mercedes, thats a different story.
Of course. They've never tried to conceal the fact, particularly this year with Dan clearly being their junior driver. An interesting comment in the F1 Racing article on Dan is that part of his success this year is based on him coming in and saying to his guys "we can't do anything about decisions made by management, let's just focus on doing what we can with what we have." Contrast with Mark who got very upset with things.
Well Vettel was always going to be the team leader. He is the 4x champion, its not like Daniel will join the team and they'll start to develop the car to Daniel's preferences. The RB10 was designed for Seb pre season and he'll have more political sway within the team. But that hasn't stopped Daniel beating him so far, he kind of does have to earn his equal status. He looks there or there abouts now.
Excuse time even before the race - even yesterday you started to be suspicious - I know your comments if Vettel beats Dan this race. Maybe Vettel raised his game and Dan is struggling with the setup - but you are looking for favoritism, cheap shot
How is that an excuse? Seb is saying that he's comfortable in the car now so they've obviously worked with him to change the car to make him comfortable. That doesn't necessarily only benefit him but not Daniel. If Seb drives better he drives better, its as simple as that. I don't think implying that the team would be pushing development to help their 4x WDC is example 'suspicion' or a 'conspiracy'. Daniel had no development input into this years car and it hasn't hurt him so far.
I was more just posting that Horner has now said Vettel is comfortable. So that "Seb doesn't like the car" stuff is over.
