can i remind all those that are quick to slag off vettel that a certain mr schumacher spent the early years of his career hitting anything that would get in his way and look what he went on to acheive.

and if he had not hit lucky to be a world champion jenson button there wouldnt even be this question just leave vettel alone just because germany beat us in football dont take it out on seb

My young bloke at the moment is learning how to drive and one of the things he is being taught is to know the extents of the car...Vettel may want to join a similar course....as he seems to have a big problem with depth perception....

The thing is by now Vettel should be way out in front of the WDC.

Without doubt this is the best car, but that may start to change with the new wing stiffness test. Let's face it who would really have put Webber now leading Vettel at the start of the season? I don't think RBR would have!

It's just possible that next year the RB car may not be as good as this one - remember Brawn last year?
And Vettel could end up really regretting this years errors.

Who made that stupid comment about Schumacher hitting everything in his early days? He always hit things and still does!!!! This is not a good reason for Vettels mistakes. He can't drive, what the hell was he doing. He is so unrelaxed and vexed that he is driving like a child. He is definitely not sorry for ruining Buttons F1 title chances, I bet he is very happy he knocked button off the track. He has been put in his place by Webber. He not only has Buttons title chances but that crash he caused with Webber earlier in the season may have cost Webber the title. Everyone hates Vettel now. He is arrogant. I hope he never wins an F1 title.

@R1 No one becomes world champ on luck!!! there is a whole season of races and Jenson deserves his title,
Seb is fast just not smart! I hate to say it but, You cant teach someone to drive fast but you can teach them to stop crashing,

Personally I think Vettel is one of the quickest drivers in F1 if it was F1 time attack series !! Put him in traffic and the fella has not got a clue how to drive and pass people wether its lack of experience (which it shouldnt be!!), frustration or un aware of his surroundings I think he should go do a few races in one make single seaters or saloons and learn how to pass (and then lets see how good he is).

Red Bull have to take a fair chunk of the blame for this, they internally favoured him and that put huge pressure on his shoulders. They managed this situation badly, Markko's meddling especially. I think he'll come good but it won't be this year.

Someone on the TV made the comment how well Hamilton coped with that pressure, one thing his dad did well was shield him from the media and the corporate pressures to a degree, too much obviously as they parted company commercially which has benefited Hamilton at this stage but early on it helped him.

Seb is like the spoiled rich kid playing in the sand box. Every one is playing fair and not paying him any attention, so he sh*ts in his hands and rubs it on his face so people will take notice of him, and his rich parents try to justify it to every one as normal.
