like a few others, i personally got really sick of all the hype that this was "the greatest ever". It really, really wasnt, and the 'nail biting finish' wasnt nail biting at all.
from the first race of the season, it was apparant that RedBull were miles ahead of Ferrari who were miles ahead of MM who were light years ahead of everyone else (in F1 terms anyway). the last time someone had the car advantage that RedBull enjoyed this season was 2004 and the Red Baron.
Now, yes, i accept that the F2004 was more reliable than the RedBull, and i also accept that Rubens didnt get to challenge Herr Schumie. to be honest though, did the RedBaron put a foot wrong in 2004? i cant recall a mistake. And as for Rubens, i dont think anybody believes that Rubens was a match for Schumie, so the whole team second thing was pretty redundant anyways as he was hardly ever in front of schumie, it hardly mattered.
really, the Redbulls shouldve won this long ago. worse, those who could have stolen it (ferrari and MM) suffered from dodgy reliability (fair enough) and too many mistakes from the drivers (button excluded).
It was a reasonably entertaining season, but to be honest, i would rank 2005-2009 aswell as 2000 above it quite easily, and thats just from the last few years.
