I must admit that I am enjoying a lot this situation. For most of the 2010 and 2011 during the famous Q3, Vettel managed to set the fastest time. Than the other drivers tried to beat that time, from time to time his team-mate, Hamilton or Alonso did that by a few hundreds. Then Vettel again started a flying lap(usually he was the last of them to run) and at the end he was 4-5 tenth up to his previous effort. This was devastating for the other drivers and for us fans which don't cheer him. He can't do it anymore, instead Lewis and Rosberg are doing this. I mean is refreshing to watch for at least one year the man which dominated qualifyings for 2 or 3 years, doing his very best and still missing pole by a small margin.

Fans that don't cheer are found on both sides and what is devastating or refreshing for one side might not be for the other side which means that such opinions applies only to one side.
Martian? A creature from outer space? That's stretching things a bit too far me thinks.

It kinda simmilair to schumacher, if you dominate everything by having the fastest car it kind a spoils it for the fans. Still he's on an amazing run and if he can win the WDCagain now he actually has some competition i might start to like the guy

2010 Vettel had competition for the championship from Alonso, Webber and Lulu right to the last race.
2012, Vettel had competition for the championship from Alonso right to the last race.

So how can you suggest that he NOW has some competition as if he never had any before?

In 2010 Red Bull made allot of mistakes and vettel was still learning, but the red bull was defentily the fastest car. In 2012 Alonso was super consistent, but not remotely as fast as the red bull. So yeah i do feel like vettel might have more competition this year from the likes of mercedes and maybe even lotus
