While I don't like Vettel, it feels like cheating that 5-6 SC periods took away his advantage, which should have been a lap or two over Button. Also, DRS shouldn't be allowed in the final lap. There is no chance to fight back after a driver lead the whole race.

His blunder caused the second place finish. Not the DRS. Keep a tick over one second gap and you NEVER have to worry about the DRS behind you. Simple. Very simple. Crying will not help. Driving will.

Rob you really are a piece of work I was wondering when your attack would materialise!
Yes Seb made a mistake but he drove nearly a flawless race pulling away each time after a safety car which would of earned him a net 1min lead but never mind that, it was a small mistake on a damp patch, just face it all Shamilton lovers are clutching at straws here, and how do you feel Sham couldn't break Vettel he had to leave it to Jenson, and to Sham "whats he doing!?!" I'd worry more about the mental state of your phoney champion than you are about Vettel, and Rob I wonder what excuses you'll find for Shamilton if he doesn't win at Valencia now that Mclaren has had the fastest race car for 3 races.

What is wrong with people on this forum. All the guy has done is express his opinion (one that several other people have also expressed). I am not exactly a Vettel fan but there is no reason to discredit his driving ability. Besides, if it were not for the over-dependence on the safety car, he would never have been under pressure.

Teabag.. I am doing the crazy frog as we speak. You sound as gutted as Vettel. Thought he would throw up during the post race interview. For sure when webber said they all got the position they deserved.

It left people like kobayashi with virtually no defence against the cars that passed him, and schumacher with almost no chance against button and webber, vettel would have had a drs on his car that he was unable to gain any benefit from because he was in the lead

Rob01 - he did say that he was pushing because of the DRS so in that regard the DRS did cause him to make the driving error. The second DRS zone just added insult to injury as a driver may have already made the pass and then got to use the DRS a second time to open a gap.

I can just see in Monza whoever is in the lead will slow on the penultimate lap and give away the position in order to benefit from DRS on the final lap. It may become like a track cycling sprint where no one wants to lead and they practically stop to force their competitor to take the less favorable lead into the final lap.
