So what Vettel is saying is that the organizers wanted the race in SPAIN to be made in favor of a FRENCH driver (who was in second position at the time)?

What a bunch of cry babies. If you look at the past 3 seasons as a whole, more often than not, luck shined in their favor. One race where all the starts don't align and they start crying to mom. Lot a lot of respect for the two of them.

I am no fan of Vettel but I haven't seen any consistency when it comes to when or when not a safety car is deployed.

Maybe he is correct, maybe he is being paranoid?

Who knows?

That is the problem. We don't know because it isn't used consistently along with many other rules...

I am struck by the fact that the safety car was necessitated by the lapse in judgement of Vergne in the sister Torro Rosso, who attempted to continue and thus spread carbon fibre debris everywhere. I wonder how this ties in with Seb's conspiracy theory?

Vergne was dropping parts along half the track. Carbon and metal and rubber. Many replays showed a lot of stuff flying off the rear. How are marshals supposed to clean that up with cars flying by, even under yellows.
