"f1 is big business now, and it would certainly not surprise me to find out that some manipulation was taking place" - Quote by Richard.

Oh, I thought you didn't believe in that. Your hypocrisy strikes again. So is it only ok when you dig at Webber fans ???

How ironic would it be, if the very accident that brought out the safety car left debris for SV to overheat his alternator/car? So in fact the car he thought unnecessary to come out, if brought out sooner, could have saved him from his DNF and as a consequence ,Diva-madness fuelled brain fade after the DNF. Oh please someone release the in car radio of when his RB ground to a halt, with german translated subtitles...please please please.

My respect for him is back to the double zeroes. Why not do what all the pros do and give a wry smile to the camera and suck it up.

This is the exact reason why I think Vettel is not at the same level as Alonso and Hamilton. Alonso and Hamilton can win races with less than perfect cars but Vettel needs the fastest car to win a race...everytime.

Vettel's comments is shocking, coming from a 2 time WorldChampion. It just goes to show he won his last 2 races by pure luck and not skills. He won in 2010 because he very very lucky that Ferrari messed up their strategy big time. And now, to say the safety car wrecked his race is really silly and a very very sore loser. He restarted the race ahead of Romain and Alonso, but if his car breaksdown, then blame it on the team. This is F1, the safety has also spoiled many potential wins for Alonso, Hamilton and Schumacher. Vettel should accept it. This is why I don't respect him as a driver and hopes he will not win again this year. Again, he will only win this year if he gets the fastest car. Put him in a Ferrari or McLaren and I doubt he can finish ahead of either driver.

To be truthful the safety car should have come out a few laps from the end to remove a car, and Sheuy and Webber would have finished one two but the spanish didnt want that to happen

Are you fair dinkum mate.

Surely the safety of the Marshals and the circuit
has priority hence the Safety Car.

It happens in all forms of Motorsport. It is the luck of the draw.

Yes it hurt Seb however the circumstances could have had further dire consequences.

Does nobody remember Italy and Australia 2000 and 2001? What if a marshal and/or a driver had been killed? Mr Vettel and Mr Marko must engage brain before opening thier traps. Idiots!
