Fantastic drive in a car that is clearly far from the best and this is no doubt the worst track for Red bull.

The remaining races on the calendar are all Vettel territory, bring them on!

Meanwhile, it looks like Mark Webber is going to get beaten by his teammate in the championship for the 4th year in a row. No disrespect to Webber but I'm surprised Red bull havent showed any interest in the available Hamilton.

Go Vettel
As it is, Redbull are leading the championship. They don't need to bring anyone from outside the Redbull jr drivers program to disturb the harmony of the team and their relationship with Vettel.

That failure is pure karma for Vettel, a drive through wasn't sufficient enough penalty for trying to get Alonso into a massive crash, by the way i'm no fan of Alonso.

ian. why was it karma for seb?
the alternator problem was actually expected since the failure yesterday. even in mid race, rbr warned webber that seb could have to stop suddenly!
as regards running alonso off the track, i think that the penalty was a bit harsh as seb did leave SOME room but ferdi opted to go totally off course. and it was no different to what has happened a number of times this year, with different cars. but the rules are the rules.
renault have already accepted the blame for the alternator problem. so i dont know how you can say that seb "deserved" this result.
was it karma for jenson? was it karma for vergne?

Speaking of karma this wish that and pray to God for this should be totally eradicated from on this forum, it only serve to totally belittle the poster exposing his sorry state of his IQ count, SHAME on such posters and YES its total TRASH.
Richard, the alternator problem is a real shame happening for the third time, I am assuming it is the exact same problem, from the look of it I don't believe the problem is the alternator itself, the real cause could be the engine heat or vibrations, it can also be an electrical problem, it can be a part problem pertaining to Renault as much as to RBR.
As in most cases I don't think we will ever know the real reason of the fault.
