German GP Result

Wow, what a great race. It looks like the top three teams are closer in terms of performance now, and it was really nice to see Red Bull eating exhaust - especially Vettel.

It was amazing to see the performance differential between the RedBull and the Renault when Webber passed Petrov late in the race on the start/finish straight. In theory they have the same engines right? But the Red Bull just "out accelerated" the Renault. At the end of the straight they both had the same/similar terminal velocity, so they would appear to have similar aero drag at high speed. Either Webber and Vettel have superior car control skills compared to the other drivers (doubt it), they have a really effective suspension design/system, or they are cheating in some way, such as having some kind of traction control. Any other possibilities?
