This is the year....
What's to be about?
Its clear as day what is going on within the McLaren Camp. No logical explanation can be given for the blatant mistakes this season.
"Human error" you say? I thought so.....especially after mistake #1. Could that same reasoning be used for mistake #2? Maaaaaaybe.
C'mon maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan...... As Mike Tyson would say, "Dis is LEW-DAH-KRITHPAH."
Qualifying in Spain
Hamiltons race engineer knows EXACTLY how much fuel to put in the car for the out lap, 1 extremely blisteringly hot lap, the in lap, and the required volume for fuel sample. He also knows that it is required that Hamilton's car drive into scrutineering under its own power or the team will receive a penalty, this is not up for debate with Charlie Whiting, it is in the sporting regs. So, given the fact that the race engineer decided to under fuel the car to gain a couple of tenths knowing they would get a penalty (it has happened to them before and that would mean that the pole benefits them nothing) they are either colossally phucking stupid or somebody made that decision on purpose.
I don't believe McLaren International recruits idiots (ok, the wheel guy might be an exception). I work in the aerospace industry and they are a bit more PC, so there are some knucklehead engineers that come through from time to time, but I know for a fact that the engineers that go into F1 are all 4.0's in their undergrad and master studies. McLaren demands excellence and a mediocre or under performing engineer is quickly exposed in an environment like that.
I'm not saying that Martin Whitmarsh is intentionally sabotaging Lewis Hamilton's season, but can somebody explain to me why they would send him out on low fuel in Q3 knowing he wouldn't make it back to scrutineering nor have a fuel sample for the stewards???

Great win for Alonso.... He's still not my favorite, but as he has matured, I've gained more respect for his talent. It'll be great to see him back with his Macca teammate under the Tifosi banner!!
Great podium.... Did anyone catch Schumi holding back the "rolling of the eyes" after Kimi's typical, monotone post-race interview?
Lewis will rebound despite the efforts of McLaren to do otherwise.
Vettel will rebound just because he's the GOAT.....
Let's try this again next time. Whadaya say?
And BTW, I feel that FA truley kicks butt on the track. He's probably going to be 2012 WDC. Just saying that in case you thought I was some sort of LH butt humper. Granted, its going to be interesting to see LH climb out of the hole he either dug himself into or was thrown into (depending on how you want to view LH).

Form is temporary; Class is permanent
I really could care less about the racist crap. I was (A) wanting to resurrect the Hamilton topic and (B) continue the debate about where Hamilton may end up (ie. potentially as a teammate to Rosberg....or Schumacher....or BOTH......Germans!!)...
Lame attempt at a segue?
