Vettel is a great driver "from the front" but Schumi is a complete driver .He can drive from the back and get wins.Schumacher will never be beaten.
what the h*** lauda is going on about?..I reckon it is a sign of green envy for Schumacher who is making superb waves again.
Sorry Lauda,go back to your memories.

If Red Bull keep producing a car with a noticeable competitive advantage straight out of the box then yep he could.

There's Alonso, Button, Hamilton and the old Jedi master is still there so the competition is much stronger now, won't be easy.

He could though....

It is very early in Vettel's career to make statements like this. Yes , he could but he could just as well not. The competition is very tough now and it would be very surprising for Vettel to always land with the best car. The records for most polls , most wins etc. should be attainable in future since we have so many GP's in a season now. But having said this Vettel has done very well and like him or not he needs to be congratulated.

If he moves to different teams over a period of time and do the same as he is doing now then he will become a legend, and only if he gets a fast (superior package)car with these new teams.

Lets hope not, for the sake of everyone, who loves to see good racing. Ferrari and McLaren hopefully will be far more competitive next year. Even with the Bulls being still a good car, when the yes man leaves at the end of 2012 the replacement will show exactly what Webber lacked.

Damon Hill on the other hand, has told the BBC that with F1 being more conpetitive now, it is unlikely to hapoen. Also that whilest Seb is top drawer, Hill would like to see him given a tougher test by other teams.

With the rules on car design getting ever more restrictive, it is making the sport more and more competitive. This would make it difficult for him to challenge Schumacher's number of titles and records, because more drivers are capable of challenging.

On the other hand, if Vettel is as good as some believe, and the top three or four teams are about even, then it could lend itself to his talent making the difference. If that is the case, and he really is this all conquering super driver, then expect many years of him being at the front of the pack, challenging to rewrite the record books.
