9. What's happened to Petrov? Last year he seemed better, almost like Perez this year. Now he's firmly in the rear. (Maybe my memory is foggy?
10. Is McLaren/Hamilton the car to beat?
Like you, I have issues with Matchett. But I give him credit for immediately noticing the track temp had dropped by a degree or two in Q3 and explaining how it was catching-out some drivers. Button still hadn't figured it out 20 minutes after failing to make it out of Q2. So Matchett has his moments.
Petrov drove for a better team the previous two seasons. Now he's at the bottom of F1.
So far, it doesn't look like there is a car to beat. Each successive track has seemingly suited a new team. Great for us!
