    Well I wasn't expecting them to be able to split the 2 Mercs in the WDC standings never mind challenge for the title... especially considering their fubared No2 driver situation which is a real disadvantage but is also really a seperate topic.

    Sure Max and RB both messed up in Turkey but over the rest of the season as a combo, IMO they have otherwise been best of the rest.

    They have been best of the rest, only because Ferrari was not in contention this year. RBR has not taken full advantage of the situation. They have under-performed IMO.

    Yes, well I guess you could say that every team who hasnt won the WCC has underperformed compared to Merc.
    Other than their messed No2 driver situation I'm not seeing what Red Bull have done worse than everyone else for thier No1 driver though... if anything they have generally over focussed and over provided for Max.. to the detriment of Alex.

    Doesn't that mean Red Bull have done a better job than Ferrari (and everyone else except Mercedes)?
