I don't know WebRic. I half get the sense Webber is a glass full kind of guy, as in don't tell me what to do... I already know it!!
It's interesting to note that Coulthard said Barrichello wasn't able to get a handle on starts either, and this would have been in the period when TC was allowed, so that's even worse.
The reality is, F1 won't miss Webber just as it didn't miss Barrichello. Some of his fans will however, but the show will go on. Having said that, I do remember when people really did miss JV. The whole "No JV, No F1" I remember that. People missed Kimi too. People don't miss JV now however, but people would still miss Kimi.
As for Webber, he's a prickly b#####d and one I just don't feel truly integrates well into a team. He looks to brood most of the time, and if he truly believes RBR have purposefully wrecked his cars, then he's delusional. There is so much money involved in F1. RBR are not going to wreck his car on purpose. Probably one of the best theories on why he's had alot of breakdowns, is his height. Meaning they have had move around components to other areas of the car Vettel's card doesn't have to.
Be that as it may, some drivers just can't get on top of things. Just watch Massa in the rain and see the circus unfold. Or his ability to totally spin out a car, even going in a straight line.
Mate, you made absolutely perfect sense there. You hit the nail on the head with webber as mr know it all, I'd picture that exact scene you mentioned playing out in my mind and I Beleive you got it spot on. You mentioned his height which be a resonable explaination when you think about it. As a webber fan myself, I can honestly say, I won't miss much as I thought when I first heard his announcement. Iam just over my loyalty being continuously tested by his flinstone starts. If there wasn't another Aussie in there, I might feel different, iam more looking forward to ricciardo in the Redbull next year as I Beleive ricciardo will get more consistant podium results.
