The way it works is, everyone writes about Vettel coming in 4th rather than Webber's great race for 3rd. (which included an overtaking of Fernando Alonso that will be in highlight reels for ages). Vettel is the next superstar sadly held up by Massa, Webber is given a pat on the back. That the way it is at Red Bull.
At Brawn we have Barrichello, as we predicted, complaining about team orders.
"I think (Ross Brawn) really likes me...". Right Rubens, he was your team manager for years at Ferrari, I'm sure he "liked you" but he still made sure the team and its number one driver won.
Is there any doubt that Button is first drive at Brawn? Only for Rubens apparently. His declarations on the verge of a hissy fit are not surprising, he's always had a persecution complex, but on Sunday it was not the strategy but his driving in the second part of the race that was the issue. Even Button spurred him on over the radio.
Barrichello was not the only whiner of the week end. Lewis Hamilton went as far as saying he drove great "like I always do" but the car was a dog, an extraordinary way to endear yourself to your team who have, one way or another, worked extremely hard on that car.
Ferrari also put a lot of work into their cars and they gained the most compared to the frontrunners Brawn and Red Bull, what they do not have yet is reliability. God knows if there is something that will break on a car, Raikkonen will find it but, unlike Hamilton, Kimi will take the fall for his and maybe even other's mistakes.
Massa drove a great race, Ferrari must have decided to race Vettel for third and that's why the early stop. What happened with the fuel, if it was a machine error or a human error we might never know, but at least when the cars ran (and had gas) they were very close to the frontrunners.
