Seb Vettel does deserve the title for sure. However, using Martin Brundle's logic of 'without' DNF's....

Hamilton would win the championship easily too!

Wheel rim exploded. 25 points
Webber smashed him off, dropped Hamilton to 6th.
Webber smashed him off circuit entirely. 25 points

Combined ,Hamilton lost over 60 points not even including his big error when he bumped Massa. (Doh!). Hamilton will bitterly regret these Mark Webber incidents and McCLarens wheel defect.

Either way congratulations to Seb Vettel I am glad he won and not Alonso or the demolition derby driver Mark Webber.

..."such boyish looks..." that sounds like a rather gay comment Mr Brundle. In a list of attributes for a champion racing driver, that one would be some way near the bottom. Oops...there I go, did I say bottom?

Agreed! What a season - as a fan(atic), once it was clear that first Button (nice guy, had his place in the sun) and Lewis (genuine raw talent, getting more focussed each year) were out of contention, it was a case of let the best man win. If it was Alonso, there would have been massive, if grudging, respect. If Webber, sentimental satisfaction. But Vettel winning is a great story: he is young, raw, takes risks and makes mistakes. Brilliant.

And, as a Lewis fan, I couldn't help but smile to see Alonso disconsolate in the paddock afterwards...

Fair point by Brundle but the fact he admits Alonso had a much slower car, and even beat Seb in singapore with it makes it seem like a contradiction.

The boy did good tho, congrats Seb.

Vettel is a pathetic champion. With an incredibly dominant car, the clear support of his team over Webber, and four close rivals all taking points off of each other, he only just managed to take the tital. He made some spectacularly stupid mistakes, showed how poor he is racing wheel-to-wheel, and converted less than half of his pole positions into victory. Had Alonso, Hamilton or Button been driving that Red Bull (or indeed Kubica or Rosberg) they'd have won the championship with races to spare.
