F1 » Vettel: What more could we have done?


Having looked on-course to not only become the first-ever winner of the Korean Grand Prix but also to usurp the world championship lead in the process, Sebastian Vettel muses that Red Bull Racing has suffered 'a bit too much' from unreliability in F1 2010

Now is the time when RBR have to throw their weight behind Webber if they really want to get this championship. The maths is easy, as if Seb takes points of Mark in the remaining races, they depend on Alonso or Hamilton to struggle to get the championship.

Not sure they will go for it, as they undoubtedly would have done had the standing between the drivers been reversed, but the only way to go...

Both Webber and Vettel have been great this year. What happened to Vettel was cruel luck, but if Red Bull really want the drivers championship,they now have to back Webber. They no longer have the luxury of choice any more!

Nothing really Seb! Particularly with the unpredictable Renault engine but they (Renault) had the decency to apologise in the end. Much as I hate to say it, it was one hell of a spectacle - the way the engine blew up and let go! It was worth watching the race alone for that!!

Even though I'm not a Vettel fan and support Mark Webber for the WDC, this was really a shame to see. Even I would admit that Seb handled the conditions the best of any driver on the track and ran the best race, without question. Of course it helped him a lot starting in pole, much easier in those conditions to hold onto that spot than usual...but still, he was always well clear of the competition.

In most cases engine blow is the fault of driver/team who "squeezed" it a little too much. Maybe that pole position did the damage? We'll never know, the fact remains, most engines are blown by rookie or hotheaded drivers.

Really thought we'd be raising a glass to Adrian Newey and his excellent design of the RBs by now.

Oh, well.. I'll raise a glass to him now anyway for a job very well done.Like it or not, those cars have been the standard others have been measured all season long.

RBR has a winning edge in pace and Webber more points, it makes more strategic sense to use the eratic driver as a foil to challengers from other teams, all the more so considering Vettel's tendency to have engines detonate under him.

Those who trust Webber for the tittle are completely wrong...

He has demoed that he can't cope with the presure, therefore his unforced crash.

Now he will have a job to do in the remaining races: do a kamikaze on Fonzo's Ferrari while Sebastard gets all the way down to the tittle.

Cheers.

Really strange to see an engine blow in such a spectacular fashion. One really wonders what they do to their blocks at RBR since it always happens to them.

There has been question marks about the cooling on the RB6 given the fact that the engine is very tightly installed for aerodynamics reason. Maybe the design went a bit far in that respect especially given the fact that the cars had to sit behind the safety car, were stopped, restarted and spent another big amount of time on SC conditions. During all that time there was little air doing the cooling.

That or there was simply a flawed piece in the engine which would be really unfortunate...I hope Sebastian is lucky in love then...
