He was on Alonso's tail the whole time.  Fernando had a lot of fuel but
Webber was right there as the fuel was burning off.

At 1.5 seconds slower than GF I fail to see what was over impressive. First
off if the Williams had had a start strategy rather than squabbled ove the
first coner FA would not have got pastr them. He was clearly being held up
but by how much or his fule load we really don't know so how you draw your
conclusion is beyond me.

Are you suggesting that there should be team orders at Williams ?
Curse you infidel and may all your camels give birth through the
hump in a sandstorm !

I seem to remember that Cosworth power delivered some pretty fast
machines in the last few years, but reliability was a problem.

It disappoints me the BMW couldnt seem to make anything work
with Williams, and if Cosworth does, it will be a surprise.

On the contrary I am just referring to Webbers comments before the race.

What Webber may have referred to a "a strategy" probably consisted of him
telling Rosberg "Keep out of the effing way at the start kid". I imagine
what we saw was Rosbergs reply.

May your testes shrivel to the likeness of black olives and you pass the
pits through the eye of your trouser snake.

Were the Cosies turning 20k still or did they back them down? Seems like
they should back them off on the 2nd race..

I really dont' know what he was on about. Williams never had any race
plans. Kinda shows i know<g>, but the most they ever asked from any
driver is to not take each other out.
Must say, i'm expecting some tears in that team again. Nico turned out
to be too damn good and will want to prove himself and Webber is not
going to lay down and let it happen. Almost a JPM-Ralf thing, but they
may not hate each other...yet.
