rob. why? rbr COULD be top of the pile for a few years, similar to othere teams in the past.

further, nobody knows what the new rules will bring in 2012, or even what engines will be used. however, provided newey stays with them, as he says he will, then vettel would be sensible to stay with them. bit i cannot see ferrari standing idly by, and merc (if still competing) are desperate to sign him.

Yeah their reliability really affected their title chase didn't it? Only got the constructors and drivers titles to their name, shocking! There were a few dnf's that had nought to do with reliability and yet they still swept the board. Shame on them.

As for Ferrari, i honestly can't see FA wanting him in the same team. Whilst not a fan of Fernando he is a better racer in every respect in my eyes. Maybe in time Vettel will get to that level but until i see him being able to drive through the field from a poor grid position then i won't put him at the level FA is.

@Cubikrube, "but until i see him being able to drive through the field from a poor grid position then i won't put him at the level FA is".

Yeah, cos Alonso tore though the pack in the last race didn't he?!?

Enchanter, as i mentioned in my post i am not fan of FA at all but in my eyes there are two drivers who know how to pass and race and thats Fernando and Lewis. They are both naturals in my eyes.
The last race should not be a reflection upon any driver as it wasn't an easy place to pass, not to mention the fact that Fernando couldn't get passed Petrov as they both had the same power plant. F1 cars are very hard to pass as we have seen at a lot of tracks.
Both Lewis and Fernando make mistakes but most of these are down to the urge to get past whoever may be in front of them.
I may not like him but he is a top driver and more importantly a top racer.
If you base everything on the last race then i spose you might as well let the finishing order be the final order of the championship standings? Thought not...

Not sure if Vettel OR Hamilton will ever succeed out side the protective bubble they've enjoyed for so long !

I suspect Hamilton would find it harder to cope though ! unless Ron joins him !
