So this is my first season watching F1 and i was just wondering if it was normal for somebody to be so dominant for almost half the season so far? I read on the games driver profiles that Button won 6 of 7 to start a year out so I'm guessing it's kind of common...

I don't know if it's common either, I only got into F1 during the past few years, but it seems as though RB have seriously done something to Vettel's car, which is why he's flown through and dominated 6/8 races this year

Sadly it's quite common in F1 for a driver or team to be dominant. But luckily for the past few years since Schumacher's retirement there have been some good well balanced phases. Last year was one of the best seasons of F1 I can remember, but the season before that like you say Button and Brawn were utterly dominant for the first half of the season. This little Vettel crisis should be gone soon, but it could of course go the other way, and get ever worse like the Ferrari/Michael era.

I can't see either of the McLaren drivers winning it this year the car is just not got the pace on the Red Bull's and it seems like the Ferrari's are becoming the nearest competitors lately. I would much rather see Webber win the championship this season than Vettel just down to the fact that Vettel won it last year and I prefer seeing a new champion every season .

great post with about 50 questions answered by F1 2011 lead designer Steve Hood.

The things I liked most:

Quote:
NeoBazza87: Will you include a Spectator Option Online after u crash out or finish the race early like the DiRT series? Badly needed IMHO.
Yes, Spectator Mode is included this year.
Temperature is now a factor, too:

Quote:
Damocool: Will the game focus on maintaining tyre and brake temperatures?
Yes, temperature management is more of a concern for players running simulation options this year.
EDIT: Whooooops, I just realized I posted this in the completely wrong thread :O

Glock has bet money on Sebastian Vettel winning the drivers championship on Sunday.

Pft I'd take that money, Yeah hes won the WDC but not this weekend ... I think anyway.
