Yes, the days of spare car are over after the drastic cost cutting measures. Teams carry enough parts to rebuild one or maybe two cars, but in Webber's case, they didn't have enough time to complete the job. Honestly speaking I have not seen any evidence of Brawn GP favoring Button in the last 5-6 rounds of the championship. Button has been lucky in many respects, for example the crash between Heikki the idiot and Sutil, allowed him to make up two places without much trouble. Similarly, Fisi got ahead of him at the start and was passed by Button when Fisi was asleep on lap one. The two BMW drivers had their own little battle when Kubica on a better strategy was only seven tenths behind Button, and would have passed him during the pitstops but all that didn't work out and Button ended up in the points. Button will not loose the title from here on unless he has mechanical problems or if we end up having one of those crazy wet Brazilian GP that happens once in awhile.
I agree with Vettel for a change, yes. Having read his first reacting, i thought it was nothing more than him being a cry baby, but with details coming out how FIA go about keeping an eye on the pitlane speed limit, it's a joke.
Man, i had put some money on Webber. This was before the Belgian GP. The odds were very tempting at that time from betfair, a couple of races later and he is not even in the title hunt anymore. I don't know what we will remember this year for, whether it will be crash gate or the DD diffuser issue. It certainly won't be for racing, especially in the second half of the season. I cant seem to remember a driver fighting for the world championship and going at the speed of a tortoise as Button is, a bag of nerves in the second half of the season and yet winning the title. All that was needed was for one of the three drivers fighting him for the title to string together three good results, say two wins and a podium. Button's lead would have disappeared and the way he is driving, he would have fallen apart, but i suppose we are asking for too much from the three drivers. Barrichello, with all his experience has never won back to back races if you ignore the farcical US GP, when Schumacher and Barrichello tried to have a formation finish and Rubens nicked it by less than a tenth of a second. The guy most likely to do it would have been Vettel, but he is on a learning curve and handicapped by the number of engines left which compromises his running during Friday.
The Air India story is better than PIA, although there was another instance in September where one of their flight was delayed because of a rat. Load shedding isn't that better, don't listen to genius83:P The Minister of load shedding has apologized to the nation, saying load shedding won't end in December of this year because his super expensive rental power plants won't be here on time. June next year is the new date he has given.
