If this is all true (wich i have no reason to doubt)it looks like vettel has now developed the mental strength to go with his natural driving ability,and will make him even harder to beat in 2012.as long as red bull give him the car.and i cant see that not happening either !

If Vettel can get a competitive car he can have a go to 3rd title(Quote)@@@@

Status Quo could do, seen that he has been driving a rocket the last 2 seasons.

Alonso, Hamilton, Button and maybe Schumacher would have won 2 Titles with the RedBull(Webber, and inferior driver went close both years).

Enrico, the inferior driver Webber, as you put it, has a better qualifying record against Button (in the same Williams car) compared to your boy Hamilton.

Also noteworthy is the fact that Barrichello, another inferior driver as you like to call em, pointswise was closer to Button than Hamilton in 2009 when they were at BrawnGP.

@hamilton the inferior driver Webber and Button were never team mates. Kind of messes up your point about him been better in qualifying then Hamilton, eh?
On topic, I have strong feeling for Alonso as champion this year, but running fairly close to the wire with Vettel, with the two mclarens dropping out a little earlier, with Hamilton beating Button by a few points at the end of the season. Also, of course the red bull boss is going to say his star driver will be coming on stronger this year, he's hardly going to say the opposate.

@Bauss "As long as his car is miles faster...."
Wrong assumption.
Well his car was not always the fastest in 2010.
If you watch and study F1, you will find its not all about flat out speed.
They cannot drive flat out for the whole race, the fuel would not last. The brakes play a major part, they slow the car down quicker than it can accelerate. Plus other technology to improve performance.
Effective race cars are achieved by TEAMWORK and loads of testing miles, the feedback from the Driver and the Test Driver, helps the Team improve the car.
On top of that you need a driver with a level head in the race that can keep out trouble and get the car home in the best place possible by communicating with the Team.
So the Driver is an important member of the TEAM and you will find the better Drivers tend to be in the better cars because they can help the continous improvement of it.
Like on the road, anybody can drive fast, not all can achieve the slower bits!
