Niki Lauda and Mark Webber both continue to tip Sebastian Vettel as this year's F1 world champion, but don't reckon he'll wrap the title up before Interlagos.

Richard,
Please and decode this:
I have the video I will rerun it and see if what you are saying
has standing with the Old Dog.

The pressure is on Ferrari. Every one know what the outcome
if Alonzo has a car as quick as RB..Vettel will have little
chance out racing Alonzo..Win or loose the out come will
be Ferrari's load to carry.
Mercedes has the same problem. Fans all knows what
Lewis Hamilton can do with a competitive car..
Should have the RV Monday late,,getting ready for Austin..

Richard,
Having reviewed the Vettle battle, I stand by what I expressed
earlier. Button did not make a race of it, he simply just
'wimped out', before and after the pass by Vettel..That second
a lap of yours is pure Nonsense.

badman, Jose

Richard, let's just for the sake of argument say that “over race distance” Vettels car was faster than Buttons, since he finished ahead of Button in the race. But then some would argue that Buttons “race distance speed” was skewed because of the Safety Cars, pit strategy, asset management etc. So then you can look at Single lap time or Sector time whichever better suits your particular argument. But let's cut the **** shall we? Vettel wound up ahead of Button at that particular portion of the race through a combination of outright speed, pit strategy, good fortune, guile, and asset management. Do all of those things equal your definition of Fastest Car? I will agree that the RB's are typically the “most balanced” cars out there in that they often sacrifice outright speed for down-force at most of the tracks they visit. This has played against them at some of the faster tracks and at this track they missed the mark slightly and Lewis and the McLaren were the faster combination. And ther

cont.
And therein lies my peeve, these cars do not drive themselves so it comes across as condescending and disingenuous when someone simply makes a blanket statement that a driver has the best car.
BTW Lauda , great racer that he was (and his T-shirt) still never say anything constructive on a regular basis, so worship him if you like, I choose not to.

jose.
lap 38 gap 8 secs
lap 40 2 secs
lap 41 2 secs
lap 43 50 stuck behind button
lap 52 vettel 1 sec ahead
lap 53 2 sec
lap 54 3 secs
lap 55 5 secs

and watch the number of times that seb came alongside button, inside or outside and button parried the move. it is rather insulting to button to say that he wimped out. brundle etc actually commented on the CLEAN racing.

also wurz stated, that button is a real racer who knows when its over. If it wouldnt have been button, the move of vettel would have ended like di restas try ...

Button lay down like a pussycat and let Vettel by , he did not show any aggression , Wurz lost his F1 seat because he was not a real racer , a real racer fights back . Vettel could win the championship because drivers are afraid to be the one who took him out of a race. Kimmi would fight like hell if it was for a 3rd position, sometimes you have to be a Maldonaldo

Lauda the triple WDC knows his stuff he knows a great when he sees one like a rookie who made history or the comments he made about Mercedes signing the best in F1.

As for Mark the man who was going to race as fast as he can to the finish line Abu Dhabi. Box, Box Mark.

I have know interest in anything he say he just a No2 driver who cant except it but gets the hump when Horner and Marko pushes him aside for Vettel. Webber needs to grow a pair like the 2007 rookie who refused to be a No2 and went on to make History.

nonbeliever. wurz didnt "lose" his seat. he actually made a conscious decision not to continue in f1! since then, he has been testing and also racing in lmp with toyota. quite successfully. and he is acting as mentor with williams.

he is a great driver.

indy if your wonderful rookie grew a pair, maybe he would be a three time wdc by now!
