F1 » Vettel one point shy after Singapore success


Sebastian Vettel needs to score just one point in Japan to put the destiny of the F1 2011 drivers' crown beyond doubt following victory in Singapore - although Jenson Button made him work for it...

@ Ron's Golden Boy!

I'm not sure I've ever read so much cr*p in one, albeit elongated, paragraph!

So Vettel being 3.5 seconds up the road ater three laps on a street circuit mean he's just an okay driver??

And last years, there were 100's here espousing their Webber will be World Champ claims!

Granted the Aussie is only an 8/10 driver at best ...but then you bring up Rosberg and Button as potentially more challenging team mates!

Are you sniffin' glue or something!

In the same car on the same day SV would beat Alonso et al ...and lest we forget his age ...he's still learning!

Season is pretty much over for me so now we are just gonna see who slugs it out for 2nd. I'll place my bet on Jenson Button. He's a bit more consistent than Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso. Lewis Hamilton another bad day in the office even though he drove the wheels off his car to 5th. Had he been a bit more patient the result would have been different but I guess its not in his nature to be patient. Singapore now holds perfect record for safety car periods. I guess it will be the same next year.

spaghettieddie "...Mark is having a tough time at the start and then to add the no DRS, he did well."

There was nothing wrong with the DRS on Webber's car, he was simply referring to the fact that it doesn't make a big difference on this circuit.

Why was Hamilton penalised for hitting Massa when Rosberg wasn't for hitting Perez? Both were just errors of judgement so why give a penalty. It was only because Massa got a puncture that they gave him a drive through.

At this point, to prevent Vettel being crowned again it might take only one pilot to do the job: another Vettel !Yet the former presumed to stay right under the points every race.

@ good lord

stop being an imbecile, 3.5 sec due to Adrian Newey and his engineers. You sound like a silly fan boy.

And how can a driver who in the fastest car has not won a race for a year warrant 8/10, are you an idiot?

@ racer50 - 1 thing that annoys me is people comparing Seb to Clark and Senna. Those 2 drivers are demi-gods and Vettel is not.
Clark is the most statistical dominator in F1 history. He didn't just dominate his opponents - he annihilated them by way of Grand Slam in nealy 1/3 of his wins. Stewart is 2nd, Senna 3rd, Fangio 4th and Moss 5th. Clark won the 1963 Belgium GP by nearly 5 minutes !
Senna was the fastest driver ever seen. Quali master, the rainmaster, awesome racecraft, epic drives and is arguably and the most voted greatest driver ever. Even if Seb achieves being a great one day he will never be on the level of Clark and Senna. Never. Just be happy Seb is making his own name in his own way.
