@ Taipan
How come u and everybody praises that alonslow?
He didn't deserve 9 from u.
Seb deserved 10. Team principals will agree.

Ferdi is not as talented or least as fast as Vettel and lewis(only speed here not talent).

Massa outqualified him many times this year and Massa was ahead of ferdi for many laps in least two races this season. He couldn't overtake his teammate.

Seb, as i recall overtook webber least twice this year apart from first lap.
cknopp is right. Go by points difference.
Seb is excellent in rain and Jense is good. Ferdi and Lewis r very bad over there. Mind that rain tests talent by equalising the cars.

Further, Jense has crashed into Lewis in Canada, had a penalty too whereas Seb didn't receive any penalty this season again making him superior over Jense apart from his speed.

Most importantly, which many f1 fans forget but not team principals,
Seb gives the best feedbback as to how he wants his car. ie. he lets the engineers know what they shud develop to make the car faster. Redbull is faster bcoz of him. Did u expect an energy drinks company to win WCCs after 2008 season? Seb changed the team, car, everythjing to make it 2 WCC.

U can read Kobayashi's thursdfay press conference interview b4 Japanese gp 2011. He says. "Seb is very good in communicating with engineers. Its true from a long time. That's how he makes his car good. That's why he is in the fastest car on the grid."
Though I believe this year Macca was good in some races and Qualifying sessions.

Ty, being a bit hard on Hammi remember he has more wins than all, bar Button and the RB7 car assisted by Vettel. Ty what would you mark Webber just out of intrest. Remember he has been driving the quickest car around a F1 circuit.

@ Rons's golden boy
I agree with u bcoz u said "RB7 car assisted by Vettel" implying Vettel is good making car look better.

If u meant anything else, i think u shud go to Vettel to learn English. Vettel speaks English better than lulu and JB.

BTW I like Hamilton as he is only an year and a half older than me. Seb's younger by an year and 5 weeks.

Angelina, Button recieved a drive through penalty at Canada for speeding during the safety car period, NOT for crashing into Hamilton (mainly because he DIDN'T crash into Hamilton)

Ron, I gave Webber and Massa 5 points, much as I like both of them it was a poor season from them.

whatever reason, JB received penalty 4 his driving and Seb didn't receive any this year.
Forget the penalties but no one will deny that Seb is faster than JB and is an outstanding qualifier whereas JB is not a good qualifier. Seb is a good defender too.
And he can overtake as he did many times this year though his Newey deigned with a slow Renault engine doesn't suit overtaking.

Angelina, i cant give Vettel the credit he may deserve because of the car, and i honestly feel the likes of Alonso,Button,Rosberg,Kubi pre-accident would equal or better Vettel. This is what has annoyed me about Webber he has had the car to give us some sort of barometer to see how good Vettel really is but it has been left to drivers in less performing cars to beat him. I love most sports but f1 is the sport in which i really want to know who is the best but due to a team owner not being prepared to put their no1 RB7 driver against a real top grid driver, which Webber has not been in 2011.

Ty, Webber 5 point and Hammi 2 points Hmmmmm.


December 09, 2011 11:35 PM

Ron, Webber's season was mainly blighted by poor starts, for what ever reason. Hammi's season was blighted by brainless driving. Also Hamilton has claimed on plenty of occasions that he's the best driver in F1, Webber hasn't. I expect anyone who claims to be the best in F1 to perform on a far higher level than Hamilton did this year, and I think you probably feel the same.
