If Vettel gains five or more titles by then in a vastly superior car and always starts from the front row hardly ever needing to overtake anyone he will only be viewed as a mediocre driver and not a great driver like Schumacher.

Let's hope he stays in longe enough to drive beside a fast driver like Hamilton, only then will we be able to truly judge his talent. Webber is just not really doing anything this year so until he gets back on it I wouldn't use Mark as a standard to measure Vettel against.

Haha, the article says even with all the money he has, he only has inexpensive tastes in cars. I'm sure he had the most cars out of all the drivers in one of Crash's previous articles!

when you read the full comment on what seb says, he is only speculating on what he MIGHT feel like doing at the end of his contract. any sensible person would say the same thing, as nobody knows what the future holds.

No one knows what the future holds but by saying he may not be in Formula One in for five years time makes one wonder if it's just his way of saying, "if I can't outperform my teammate I will be off". Is it because he knows Hamilton is coming into the team?
