F1 » Vettel: It was pretty tough today...

Sebastian Vettel: My tyres were going away from me and I prayed the same was happening to Lewis, as he was catching up and they seemed so much quicker, especially on the last sector. At the end of the straights he would be right in my mirrors, so you don't know if you should defend or not. It was very close, but on the last two laps, I could make it stick.

Great job by Vettel today, especially the last 10 laps.

With the KERS problems he was definitely at a disadvantage and yet he managed to just barely keep in front.

Has to be the hardest win all year for Vettel and a sign that McLaren is staying right on the heels of RBR.

Ferrari DID get lucky with a great start by Alonso but the lack of competitive pace of their car was obvious- lapped by the end.

Vettel is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen. I wasn't so sure at this time last year, but it's clear that, now, he has arrived. He is a driver of rare and focused talent.

No Sure why everyone is so impressed with Seb, the RB7 is 1 second a lap quicker in qual....does it suprise you that he won? Drive of the day goes to lewis, 35 seconds ahead of his team mate and .6 off the lead in a car that is still far off reb bull. All im saying is that when the cars are within a 100th in pace then we will see what he is made of....

@ centrodromme

The win was mainly due to him qualifying on pole....even Sebastian Bourdais qualified 4th (and we know he's full of raw talent)....Seb hardly drove a HRT to victory.

No Sure why @Bruisa is so impressed with Lewis! Drive of the day goes to Seb, **47.9 seconds** ahead of his team mate and kept lewis behind for 30 laps. Both Lewis & Seb thought McLaren was faster at some points in the race, and Lewis took fastest lap!! We did indeed see what he was made of....

@ awsome so you think that if someone has a cars that is a second a lap quicker than the competetitor aand after 66 laps the competitor is only .6 of second behind the it was a mighty race by the winner? my friend take off your rose coloured glasses. all i said was when the qual time is within 100th then we will see what seb is made of, not when he is in a car 1 second per lap quicker. Marke webber is not a world champ like Button.
