Well, by his own self admission said it was stupid.
I think it was Jack Brabham who said always win at the slowest possible pace.
Reminded me of Prost's comment in Senna the movie "he just didn't want to win, he wanted to humilliate me and that was weakness.

Winning by the smallest of margins or by a country mile is still a win but winning with the biggest impact /margin is a good thing with some of today's drivers ego's, will serve them good.

Seb is great and we all know deep down he's the best in F1 but the fight for 2nd place in this years championship is hotting up, as much as I have given Hamilton stick doesn't change the fact he's faster than Button on raw pace so it's important for both Mclaren drivers to beat eachother in the championship, it'll be a tough fight but if I was honest I'll say Lewis will get the 2nd place if he doesn't crash again in the final 3 rounds.

Vettel has never focussed on fastest laps. His main priority is to open up a gap and maintain it by coasting to the end. Now that the championships are over, he is able to let go a little and take a few more risks. I really do applaud his attitude. Do not read anything into Webber's fastest laps except that it shows that he has the fastest car and should be doing better. Qually is where the real fastest laps are.
