F1 » Vettel: We still need to go at full throttle


Sebastian Vettel: This weekend in Abu Dhabi the same level of concentration and skill is what is needed if we are to stay in front because with three races to go a comfortable lead is an elusive thing.

I know Vattel won't win 2012 title, and I don't need a Crystal ball to say it. IMO Alonso is far better and thoroughly deserves to win the title. No, it's not the question of let the best men win either because even in this criteria Alonso tops Vettai :p

@Telsa I'm not arguing with what you're saying but the reason Alonso is behind is because Ferrari can't keep up with the Red Bulls pace and in order for Alonso to win the WDC Ferrari would have to improve the car which I don't think will happen. Everyone says its a team sport, you have to have a great car AND a great driver because without both you aren't going to win.
Personally, I think Schumacher is better than both of them but as he doesn't have a good enough car, he cant win races :)

Alonso hasn't won a race since the German GP. Anyone remember much about that race? Previous to that race, Vettel had won one race and Alonso had won two. Alonso can no longer count on driving at 100% every lap to get himself onto the top step of the podium. He now relies on Ferrari, as a team, to get him there.

Regardless of whether or not some people think Alonso is the more deserving driver, F1 has shown down through the years that the most deserving team and driver combination wins the titles.

"have you ever won the lottery? you seem to "know" it all"

richard, no. lottery is for losers. are you one?
fyi, no one knows it all but remember my words because my sixth senses says vettel won't win, and my hearts wishes alonso to capture the 3rd title :p

remember 2010?

vettel - 256
aloo - 252

And, do you remember what petrov did? this time no petrov & he sucks :D

So vettel is not that great. at least lewis and kiwi is fun. Vettel to me is like Stoner. they only want to race ahead and alone. most of the race, if not all. but i'm not saying vettel is not talented. very very talented. but 2012 title he won't title :)

Vettel is a brilliant driver. why does he always collect a gap of 1 to 2 seconds in first two laps. why does he always find himself around 6 seconds ahead of others. he knows that even if he is 100% focused some things can go wrong beyond his reach. what if some one decides to park at his pit may be. It's not the talent or focus only, he has brains as well. he challenges every other driver, if you want to pass me first try coming closer to me. Brawns no brains doesn't work for anything.

@redbull racing
You said it mate - a 1 to 2 second gap in the first two laps . . often more in next laps too.
NO WAY is that achieved by driver ability
- IT IS ALL DOWN TO A FAR SUPERIOR CAR
Vettel proved he is crap at racing mid grid and cant win from anywhere but front of grid
- that is why proper F1 afficionados dont rate his ability higher than just average
Its only the deluded 'fans' blinded by a strange love who think hes great

Every driver wants that. Only a few are good enough to do it.

Google the words "Pole and win in same race". Senna had 29 such races, Schumacher 40. See who else is on that list.
