I would have loved to see the look on Horner and Marko's faces when Webber passed Button on the second to last turn on the final lap but perhaps even more so when, during the press conference, he said he was happy someone beat his teammate! What an extraordinary thing to hear.
Not bad for a #2 driver again, after being put by the team on hard tires in Q1 Saturday, after again not having a working KERS (tell me again what good is KERS?). Webber deliverer a rather clear message to Red Bull:
Red Bull seemed to be a bit too convinced of its speed coming into the race. we mentioned they had done successful long stints in practice and that it looked like they would go for a 2 stopper. I suppose they figured they would have such an advantage between the car and Vettel running off after the start that they would be ok...bzzz wrong. Mclaren with Hamilton destroyed Vettel and the Red Bull brain trust today, what a performance by them. But for me, and many of you I'm sure, it was Webber's best race ever. Yes he had the right strategy, yes he's driving an RB7, but there was that fire that only comes to someone who eats red mist for breakfast. Frankly, Vettel may be world champion but I don't remember him putting in a performance like that ever. Go @aussiegrit!
I guess everyone loved the artificial tire degradation related passing, it sure made the job of putting together the usual Executive Summary long! enjoy.
