What does he mean by The Title... ?

There are 2 up for grabs, Team aka Manufcturer and Driver.

If RBR can keep up the Q3 pace, the starts from pole will hand the Drivers title to Vettel.

Unless Webber pulls his finger out, McLaren may well get the Manufacturers Title, they have 2 Number 1 drivers, RBR, a Number 1 and currently, a Number 2, at best.

@dave
Webber is doing pretty well, he has 94 pts after 7 races and has finished all races in the top 5 (and all but the first in the top 4).

Webber's tally of 94 pts is greater than the 92 he had after last year..... the only problem is that Vettel has 161 this year and 78 last year.

The Newey - Vettel combination is clearly the success story of Red Bull at the moment. However, what Dave may be underestimating is what Webber gives to the team by way of feedback and experience. Vettel may be a beneficiary of that also.

terminator. i agree with you. i would put webber equal to or above button. webber has been unlucky in several areas, particularily having a fast teammate. button has had some luck which overstated his true performance.
newey says only title will do, but then again, whitmarsh says the same, and de montezemelo says the same...... why even fernandes says the same!

Webber has been very unlucky in several areas,just take a look at what has happened so far this season,it keeps happening far too often now with Marks car and it is more than just a coincidence.
