wow! what a comment! lulu now saying that the wdc means little and that he is losing interest. and then blaming it on the fact that "someone different wins it each year"!
surely the fact that different drivers CAN win it, is more reason to try and overcome these others? at this rate he could decide to do a kimi at the end of 2013, and retire. what would newbie and arcuid do then?

A different champion every year makes the crown MORE valuable. That means there are more drivers capable of winning, more drivers on competetive cars. How many championships would Schumacher have won if the McLaren didn't break down constantly and had Williams BMW had a better driver than Ralph Schumacher? :D

It seems to me that he wants the honour of Alonso in 2006, beating the living legend Michael Schumacher when he was on really good form with a competitive car like Ferrari F2006 was.He has right.Now they are to many champions and the great honour I think is to beat Red Bull in the constructors championship because is the car and not their drivers making the difference.Vettel has made an outstanding job until now this year but I am sure that if the other teams manages to surpass them Vettel will become an easy driver to beat(I am not considerig the major gap in the points but the races one by one).Maybe the only legend now in great form is Adrian Newey.I am asking myself that if Mr.Newey retires or leave Red Bull for another team where will be Red Bull in the next few years.My answer:a team fighting with Mercedes and Renault adrift Ferrari and McLaren.
