Dont know Manish Patel, but in my opinion he must be either British or an Aussie.

The article is mainly about Mark Webber.
However his criticism about Vettel is totally wrong.
If he had analysed all the Gp's of this season he would have found out that Vettel was already WC without the mechanical problems he encountered.
And probably without this bad fortune, Vettel might have been less frustrated and could have avoided his mistakes and subsequently would have completely blown away the whole opposition.

On the other hand, where would RBR be today with 2 other drivers, lets say Hamilton and Kubica or Alonso and Button?

I totally understand where you are coming from and you are perfectly entitled to have you say. And yes I am British.

As for Sebastian Vettel, he has been unlucky at times this season but at the end of the day he has been rash at times as well e.g. Look what he did at Turkey and Belgium. Don't get me wrong he will be a future Formula 1 World Champion but he does need to cut out making mistakes.

Mark Webber has been brilliant for Red Bull during the last two seasons and he does deserve a lot of praise. Its only fair if I do talk about him. Many F1 fans I have spoken to have said they would like to see Webber crowned World Champion.

the whole article is a mark webber 'praise fest', if either red bull driver had been brilliant this year the title would be in the bag by now, the car has been brilliant allowing the team to have led over half the racing laps we've had this year, the team though need to do a better job to make sure that adrian newey doesnt take his talent to mercedes or ferrari, then it will be the fall and fall of red bull racing we'll be reading about

The success may continue for some time, Renault Engine supply agreement confirmed this morning for RBR for 2011 and 2012 seasons

Renault have also signed deal to supply Lotus - no major surprise there I guess
