I guess the tires are to blame for only beating Vettel in 1 of 14 races this season.

Good excuse though, its not like everybody else has the same Pirelli tyres.

I just hope he can get on top of this launch set-up or some other system devised for him. Bring back a good old clutch pedal. Mark seems to be the only driver out there who is having real problems with the Pirelli's which from a fan point of view - sucks.

Red Bulls getting of the start line poorly was a little of a standing joke last year. This year Vettel seems to have found a starting routine that works almost every time, Webber has a lot of catching up to do.

That would be a more acceptable excuse if he was the only one using the tyres... he isn't and therefore it is a totally pointless reason. He has just not been as good as the other guys. Then again everyone knew that anyway.

Is he having a laugh ? For me the best thing about this season has been the tyres and how the drivers handle their changing characteristics throughout the entire race . The drivers who dont rely on a perfect package and electronics to get them round (ie the better ones) have risen to the top this year . I haven't heard Seb , Jenson and Alonso making excuses about poor performances on tyres etc this season.
