@ theodacourt I'm guessing the McLarens are better in race trim with all the extra weight of the fuel while the Red Bulls are stunningly quick with low fuel (probably set up for qualifying more than the race), but lose some of the balance of the car with a full fuel tank. That's just a guess though.
I think Seb is too far ahead already for anyone to catch. Red Bull seem to have sorted most of their glitches from last year and the blown diffuser although a big help to Red Bull probably won't affect the car too much as they have time to figure a new system (unless things go horribly wrong). They also have a better front wing than the other teams, although McLaren are oh so close!
Oh I think it will. Naturally it will be more about our diminishing resources than religious based, effectively a resource war unless the technology to use hydrogen instead of oil takes a very big step in the next few years. Pretty much all (major) wars are about controlling resources.
