2011, the Red Bull was dominant, hence why Vettel won the title by a country mile.
If you look at the top 3 performers last season in qualifying the best was Hamilton mainly because hes an outstanding one lap specialist and the Mclaren was quick the next two were Vettel and Webber.

Race wise Vettel and Webber had the best car especially after the mid season break when the car updates were brought in with Vettel winning 4 in a row that for me is when the Red Bull became dominant.

I will concede that Mclarens reliability was a massive issue for Hamilton at the end of the season.

I agree, I was contemplating getting up to watch it live at 6am or whatever, but im glad I recorded it and then watched it when I got up about 9

They had the best car for a period after the mid season break, the McLaren was stronger at the start and the end. But the constant pit stop issues at the start of the year, and the reliability at the end of the year cost them.

You could argue Vettel had the best car, dominant was the only thing I massively disagree with, because we saw what he did with a dominant car in 2011.

The use of the word dominant might of been the wrong word but it was over the entire season in my opinion the better car.

I agree with you about Hamiltons whinging though, im a fan of his driving style and ability but i carnt stand to hear anything he says once he steps out of the car hes not really a person i can warm to.

You read it here first folks!

Now imagine if he was driving a Redbull or a Ferrari...

To be fair, it's just one race, and Renault/Lotus have been decent for a while, but still nice to see a different team challenging the RB/Mc/Ferrari dominance.
