What a great chap Vettel is. I completely agree with him. Massa was very unlucky to not have won the world championship, and then again unlucky to cop a spring to the noggin. I think he will go down as one of the most unluckiest drivers to ever grace the sport. Time to move on Felipe. Let us focus on your successes and not your "second career" after the accident.

Ideally for Felipe, he needs to say 'yes, fernando, you are faster' as he lets his team mate through, in each of the last five races, it can be done, renault had to slow fissi down a few times, briatore got rid of trulli, and some other guy got close one season too.

Haha you gotta love it. Insults at FA's address disguised as kind words towards Massa. Earlier in the year FA said Hamilton was his biggest challenger as he was the only one who could win races in a less than great car (funny that it had to be Hamilton as we know who was the one who equalled/beat FA in 2007), now Seb is returning the favour.

He clearly insinuates how Ferrari is favouring FA over Massa 'I'm not a Ferrari driver so I don't know how it works over there' and recalling that Massa did rather ok compared to Schuey and Kimi before when the FIA attempted to crack down on team orders and Ferrari seemed to momentarily comply with that before falling back to their old ways.

Of course he's right, but then I wonder what Seb himself will do when he inevitably ends up at Ferrari at one point. I doubt he'll demand equal treatment for the no2 driver then (if he's 1st that is).

@runnah - no it isn't. It's Hamilton by a country mile!

Although I must admit that he has gotten better this season compared to last.

Not sure how I got suckered into discussing Hamilton in comments on an article regarding what Vettel thinks of Massa...

This is just the start of mind games with Alonso , we will hear a lot of this until the championship is won . Vettel will say anything to shake Alonso . Alonso will be thinking up something to say to rattle Vettel . Its mind chess
