Super achievment from Vettel to eclipse Mansells equally super achievment. Was the car advantage enjoyed by Mansell over the field more than Vettel holds now? Either way with five world champions on the grid this year, he is clearly number one for now!

We have a new Legend in Formula 1. Vettel has already sealed his place alongside others with phenomenal seasons where they destroyed all competition. Mansell-Williams, Schumacher-Ferrari, Prost/Senna-McLaren, and now we have VETTEL-Red Bull !!!!!!
If retired and disappeared in The Maldives after this weekend, he would still be referred to as on of the greats like Mansell, Schumacher, Prost, and Senna. He has achieved a great deal in his short career.
And lets not forget that he has 10 or 12 more seasons to add to his achievments ! Horrido Sebastian!!!!!

Congratulations to the Red Bull design team who has designed a record breaking car, a car i feel i could drive to wdc. Also good strategy from the team in having their drivers sandbag over the weekend and fooling most of us in thinking Mclaren was equal to the superior RB7.

Great team, great car.

Ron, I never believed in sandbagging in fact I think it is a false assumption/hypothesis apart from the work program a team will have to carry out that is provided there is no problems encountered a team will try their best to destroy the opposition moral from the first turn of the car wheels, yesterday and today I noticed that both RB7'S were concentrating and in fact doing better long run's (stints) lap times than anybody else and not just a qualifying like laps.

sunny. the term sandbagging is only used by those who are trying to explain why their driver is not doing as well as expected. due to closeness of times, nobody can afford to sandbag, and also due to such limited testing, it would be suicide to sandbag

I feel that Red Bull has so much headroom performance wise that it can afford during practice to experiment and collect data knowing that in quali they have a driver who can use that headroom during quali and the pole shoot out to get the job done.

richard i know why a certain driver has not done as expected, she is called Nicole.
