You mean a go-slow protest? Haven't you been doing that all year?
CoalInCoals   Colin Kolles
Hot-blown diffusers give the other teams a significant advantage. They are clearly illegal.
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
I must be illegal then. I give Red Bull a very significant advantage.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Don't you mean Red Bull gives YOU a very significant advantage?
Horner   Christian Horner
Now Mark, that's not what it says in your contract.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Fair go mate, so you're saying it's not true then?
Horner   Christian Horner
It's not what it says in your contract.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Except for Virgin and Williams who also don't have it, and yet they're also lapping you.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
Thanks for defending us Michael. It is really unfair, I could be on the front row if I got a hot-blown diffuser.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Christ, I forgot you drove for Williams, Rubens. That's two significant disadvantages for your team then.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
Why would you say that Michael? You know I was a brilliant team mate. I made you win multiple world titles.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
And you'll be a good wingman for McDonalds. He just got his drivers license, and he's already beating you.
Pastor   Pastor Maldonado
To be fair, I'm 26 and I got my license 8 years ago. But yes, I am now beating Rubens.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
I would usually prefer my double diffuser, but I'm a sucker for anything hot-blown.
rubens   Rubens Barrichello
Any kind of diffuser will do me, Jenson. I just need a chance.
rossbrawn   Ross Brawn
Sorry Rubens, but I gave you the same double diffuser as Jenson in 2009, and what did you do? You came third.
