hmmmm I wonder how these posts would be looking if a safety car hadn't come out and one of the cars got a high speed puncture resulting in serious injury or worse, wonder who Vettel would have dedicated his win to ? or would he have been saying that there should have been a safety car ? I know given the choice if I was a driver I'd like to think that concern for my safety was of greater importance than drivers saying theres a conspiracy to stop them winning .... suck it up little boy you'll get another chance

Was it not a couple years ago that a marshal ran out on track to pick up a thrown beer bottle? Yes it is different to pieces of car but just saying.

For a series that touts saftey at every opportunity they always seem to leave carbon fiber all over the track. And yes the saftey crew went and pushed Sebs broke Bull while the cars were back on pace. 3 of them within a few feet of the passing cars. They throw a yellow for debris and then go green with local yellows while the saftey crew risks their lives. Plain crazy.

"Vettel and Marko think quite a bit of themselves. Swollen heads on both of them. How arrogant.." Yeah, probably he said something that should not have been said in public. That said, the safety car, and the way it was deployed was a joke. The one part he's got right is the NASCAR like tactics. F1 is trying to be way too safe and popular with american audiences.

Not defending the conspiracy theorists, errr, drivers but F1 has devolved in respect to caution periods. Used to be a VERY rare thing to have a full course caution. Used to be that most tracks had large cranes at various points to simply lift cars out of the way and this was done with local yellow flags. Now, it is a VERY rare thing to NOT have at least one full course yellow (safety car period) each race. Lame.

Vettel will soon start showing us the middle finger instead of the fore finger after winning because he believes he is KING of F1. The FIA must be more serious with Red Bull & the RB8.
