Hamilton: Red Bull are unbeatable

Stephan Heublein

Even before the weekend, everyone was aware that the most aerodynamic car – namely the Red Bull RB7 – would have the edge on the aerodynamically demanding Circuit de Catalunya. After qualifying, it is now clear that Red Bull are racing in a league of their own.

In claiming pole position, Mark Webber was a full second ahead of the first non-Red Bull driver, Lewis Hamilton. He also beat Sebastian Vettel by two tenths, but it has to be borne in mind that his team-mate was not using KERS.
