Very nice gesture from Seb, dedicating his win to the late Prof. Watkins.

BTW I am sure that if Seb celebrated his wins and poles with a gesture other than the 'finger', he will have more fans

I understand that some F1 fans could be irritated by SV's finger. His photo image could appear arrogant.

But - I see it as a Red Bull Team celebration. They clearly win or loose together!

@Terminator, ben
Seb Vettel's finger is his trademark. Its his original style and photographers encourage it. In fact he is nice enough to give that pose whenever a photographer asks him too. Vettel is arrogant (though much less than former multiple WDC's) but the finger celebration has nothing to do with his arrogance.

Vettel haters will find the finger arrogant. No other reason to criticize Seb.

But if you consider the intention of finger celebration, u won't find it arrogant. Finger is a part of celebration not arrogance. Seb is happy and expresses his happiness.

No different than Alonso's "bull horns" that he makes after a race win.

I just think seeing it after 14 poles and 11 wins last year may have just made it become annoying to some.
