Webber gets " Luscious Liz"

It appears, pending inspection of the damage to his crashed chassis that Webber will now be using Vettel's old car.

While RBR claims the flaws in the chassis have been repaired, I'm predicting this will be the undoing of any run for the title Webber had this season. Vettel had a lot of troubles with that chassis.

So Webo is not #2 in the team...he's #3 instead...

I wonder how long does a team to build a brand new chassis? three weeks to a month?

I figured they would just always have another chassis on hand...

I guess that have to do with the cost cutting in the future, the test ban, and no "spare car" on race weekends (only to rebuild from bare chassis like Alonso in Monaco). So I guess they will just have one ready in Milton Kyens....

Guess the old chassis is not that bad after all... Vettel must have been looking for excuses to justify his string of bad races....
