@Richard
Seb was expected to b out 4 6 weeks but he was there for next race dur to his determination though he was not as competitive n finished 6th.

@Taipan @haters pls excuse me
Vettel was in gymnasium school where admission is competitive. He would have been a mech engineer if he would not have been in F1.
Rosberg had an admit for aero engineering in a UK univ. when he got his F1 call so he didn't attend.
Schumi is a car mechanic.
I don't think Ferdi, Lulu were good in school.
Not sure which diploma Kubica has.

Thanks for that info Angelina.

Richard, So Lulu beat a rookie schoolboy with a sore finger while driving a superior car in 2005, you can understand Ronnie's pride eh? lol

What's next Ronnie, In 1997 Lulu beat fat Timmy at the school sports day egg and spoon race?

@Taipan
U welcome.
Seb's finger was sore in 2006 not 2005. But true lulu beat a rookie school boy in 2005 while driving a superior boy n Di Resta failed to do even that which all of his teammates could do. The schoolboy Vettel was declared as Rookie of the year & not DiResta(more than a year older) who too was a rookie in a superior car which Seb joined in 2006.

BTW watch the videos of Seb n lulu in F3 2005. Rookie schoolboy Seb was amazing aginst the then F3 champ in an inferior machinery. U will enjoy the battle though. Amazing defensive skills by Seb under pressure.

BTW Seb beat Di Resta in 2005 in an inferior car n 2011 in a superior car.
Which car will Di Resta n his fans prefer to get beaten by Vettel. I think equal maybe to clear all the doubts to the relief of Webber fans.

angie. thanks, i wasnt sure when seb damaged his finger, but looking up on google, it said that he was out of action for six weeks. but anyway, it is interesting what you say about his engineering skill. this shows why he spends so much time examining his and others cars, and also why he spends so much time with his engineers. may this creates mechanical sympathy that helps him conserve his car. he has always been seen to drive around car problems.

Its called history Taipan and i will continue to remind the extremists of Hammi's talent and if schoolboy decides to take on a driving phenomena then he deserve to get hi butt kicked and as i have said those are the only times people can compare the two, and Hmmi having the worse season was the one of three drivers who was able to beat Vettel with vettel in a far superior car.

@Richard
U r always welcome.
True this explains why Seb spends so much time examimnig his n others cars n so much time with engineers.

Also, this n his good communication explains his good feedback which Newey, n his former teammate(F3) Kobayashi, Berger have already mentioned.

Further, i have read that Renault had signed Heidfeld over a youngster coz they had to develop the car. Renault team principal had said last year we would have signed a younger driver if the crash woul have beeen midseason but during start, we don't have a car. We have to develop it.
