Rob please do yourself a favour and stop trying to stir trouble, ok so Webber is not Vettel's friend, ok so Vettel is the better driver, of course Webber's not over the moon about the situation, the fact of the matter remains they're working just fine for the team at the moment.
Your hatred for Vettel is laughable, yes he is the best driver in F1 and yes he's beating the hell out of your Shamilton literally and yes it's got to the point where Sham is losing the plot and now getting beaten by a barely 'good' driver in Button, I can understand your anger and frustration but please find something constructive to say.
Oh on a off topic note, it would be fantastic if Kobayashi joined Ferrari or Redbull next season, the boy is another real deal and he could match Button and Webber's level but with the added flair and excitement, let's just hand Seb the title and roll on 2012, no doubt Sham and Alonslo will be fighting hard next season which is all good.

Tealeaf,Rob is not trying to stir up trouble he is just saying that he thinks Mark won't sign for next year.And Vettel is not beating the hell out of Lewis,Lewis was all over the back of Seb 3 races ago and don't worry there will be plenty more of that to come,don't yu worry.

Yes pitstop there will be plenty more of that Mclaren all over the back of Vettel in the coming races especially from silverstone onwards but that's to be expected when the Mclaren is so fast in race trim, maybe they'll be on pole at silverstone, that'll make for an exciting 2nd half of the season no doubt, I'm not really worried, Seb has enough quality and a big enough lead to close out the championship by monza if there won't be more than 1 DNF until then.

Most of this interview with Seb is recycled news some of which can be found as far back as 2008. so Lort Murof I dont think hes gonna be running scared at all and as a Brit myself I have to say some of the comments on here are of the kind that make me ashamed I am. Seb is a fantastic driver and seems to be a nice kind of guy who has grown so much in the last 9 months or so.. long may it continue finger included!!

Impossible not to like this guy.
Runs his own career so basically has no manager to tell him what and how to behave. Down to earth. One of the best drivers on the grid currently. Admits to his mistakes and shows he has emotions. Has won races in 2nd tier cars. Very mature for his age.
And for those of you that just like to look at is finger, well... what can I say...

Go Vettel!

This guy is just like Schumi. Only better in every way. After all, Michael was a mentor of sorts to him.
As for him not having a manager, I'm sure Bernie and Schumi are able to whisper the right things for him in his ear here and there to give him guidance. They are best of friends.
Despite the small percentage of detractors, Vettel is shaping up to be one of the greatest drivers of all time. He's got at least another 12 seasons to show them all how it is!

rob. if a brit magazine was interviewing mark, and continually asked questions about lulu, i am sure that mark would have a similar reaction. "why not ask him".
and as for the crazy frog tune that you are hung up on, seb already explained that this was a in-joke or dare, with one of his engineers. all it shows is that he has a sense of humour, something your idol could do with adopting?

vettel is BOOOORING!!!
He may win multiple championships courtesy(christian horner & red bull) but he will never be as worshipped as senna or schumacher.he shows no emotion or passion just like alain prost who has four championships to his name but i dont see anyone calling him a legend.
and by the way who said that Germans are not funny?
vettel comparing himself to GOD...haaahaaahaah

shabby. shabby comment. nowhere has seb likened himself to GOD. in fact he says that he is NO god , meaning not the ultimate , but an idol like god. and he does show emotion, yet many posters criticise him when he does. poor lad cant win, can he. (other than races, of course)

I understand that Horner and Newey have helped Seb for sure, but he won in an STR for crying out loud. He has talent. No other STR pilot has ever been close to a top 5 let along a win. The finger can be annoying but the dude has massive raw talent. I like his use of some old school comments and just the way he carries himself. Refreshing to see a humble driver as opposed to someone as outspoken as Lewis running his trap every chance he gets. javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':rolleyes:')
