I,m a Ferrari fan but they got what they deserved today, NOTHING... Instead of focusing on their own race, they were obsessed with their closest rival Webber. Instead of looking at the big picture, which let Red Bull favorite "Vettel" under the smoke screen to win the race and the title.
If it all came down to today's race then Red Bull and Sebastion Vettel fully deserve it, Congratulations!!!!

He already thanked everyone, even those not in the team. Why the hell must he specially mention MW ? As if MW did him any huge favour during the race. MW was pathetically hopeless throughout the race. I might lean towards believing he purposely chose not to challenge Alonso as he knew he wouldn't win the championship anyway and hope that he team mate wouldn't too. If he knew he is in a good position to help Vettel win the race, he would have given Alonso a hard fight at least to push him further down a place.

You know, call me mushy and sentimental, but my allergic reaction to Vettel broke down when I heard the team radio after the flag. I was expecting the usual bout of "yeah baby" in higher amplitudes but instead we got tears and drowned words. I was expecting him to cry (whine actually) only if he lost. Which sort of shows that he didn't actually believe the title belonged to him no matter what, rather that he believes that he actually earned it. Congrats!

Whats so good about watching an F1 championship be decided by slower cars? There was no epic battle? 1 of the dumbest calls Ive seen all year? Thake Alonso out of the points n pit for tires...they got duped by RB, n they fell for it....

BTW, Webber starts 5th, not 1 car overtakes him and he finishes 8th!
1 Why did RBR not pit MW during the safety car? This sucked FA in when MW eventually pitted. We knew they would follow one another.
2 Why was there such a massive time difference and tyre wear issue between the Red Bulls which has not been evident all year?
3 Why in the press conference did SV not once mention MW?
This race stinks of a setup. SV is the prodigal son of RBR. They should not make their bias so obvious. I am absolutely disgusted.
