No Seb hater here (quite the opposite), but with a faster car and 5/6 laps of DRS Hamilton should have been despatched easily regardless of how good his defense was. Still, a bad pit stop, stuck behind Hamilton while Alonso breaks away. Still finishes second - even if his team hadn't of ordered Webber to stay put he would have finished 3rd. Say hello to he 2011 WDC.

once seb passed lulu, he pulled away at a rate of knots, so yes, lulu did cause him a delay, and did make a few changes of direction as was noticed by brundle. but seb made no complaint about it, to him, it was part of the race.

You have to love the headline! I just do not get some of the Vettel haters. Listen, I get why you Hammi fans are bummed out, its his performance this year. And its obvious that the rest of this year is basically just practice for him but dont take it out on Seb just because he's good and happens to be on his way to his second WDC. I understand that the #1 finger move pisses you off too but....he did it because he is. LOL :)
