Guys b fair
Give credit where its due.
Definitely Seb. Vettel.

Only 2nd driver to get 10+ wins, broke pole, laps lead and youngest grand chelem records.

Got poles when Macca was faster. His teammate is not 2nd in c'sship unlike schumi's 10 win seasons implying car wasn't as dominant as he made it look like. In Abu Dhabi, w/o Seb, RBR looked like 3rd fastest not even 2nd fastest car.

Seb made good overtaking moves, good defensive driving in Monaco and Spain, excellent in rain(Hungary, Canada). What else shud he do to get ur vote?
Ferdi was overtaken by Seb, Webber and JB many times, outqualified and outraced by Massa sometimes, the pts diff. is thanks to lulu.

Don't forget to check the quality of teammate as u check the quality of car.

Webber is definitely better than Massa post accident.
Its not easy to handle that redbull. We could see how Massa struggled with that redbull wing.
Webber has beaten (otraced and also outqualified )all his ex teammates some of which were Coulthard, Villenlue, Heidfeld, Hakkinen(not sure).

JB too did a decent job but his teammate is very fast.

The c'ship order 4 this year was correct b4 Brazil considering driving skills only (excluding car development skills)

1. Sebastian Vettel
2. Jenson Button
3. Fernando Alonso.

Points diff. is due to Seb's tyre failure in Abu Dhabi and cuff gear box problem cuff. He had one but not sure weather he would let go JB or Lewis.

Webber, Ferdi had 0 mechanical DNF's this year.
Tyre failure wasn't Seb's mistake it was Redbull's mistake while experimenting after wrapping both titles.

I thought Alonso and Vettel both deserved top billing with Button next. Alonso made some phenomenal starts in the Ferrari and often got it well ahead of where it should have been. The Ferrari really wasn't podium material this year, yet Alonso was regularly up there.

If u feel they r equal, do not hesitate to look after championship standings or Canada or Hungary, or Monaco or Belgium which test driver skills by eliminating car advantage.
Seb did well in Monza too which doesn't suit Redbull.

Saying Ferdi is better than Vettel is like saying u r better than the class topper bcoz u r better than ur siblings but the class topper is only equal to his siblings as they too r class toppers.

Seb's car wasn't as dominant as people say otherwise difference to teammate would be less.
Also lulu ruined Massa's championship and then that Redbull's front wing which is difficult to control. I can't iagine Massa as Vettel's teammate. Team will kick him out with such performances. Webber is doing a good job of controlling the Redbull car.

Ferdi cannot even complain abt car as the car was good in 2009 but he couldn't help the engineers with feedback once he joined in 2010. Michael was doing a good job i think.
