Where Vettel caught up to Kathikeyan was unfortunate. What did he seriously expect him to do though? Leave the track and potentially cause harm to himself? Vettel needs to stop whining about what could have been and focus on what he should be doing.

Vettel a *****n moaner, that area of the track is one of the tightest, no what do he expect Narain do, go off track for him. If I'm not mistaken the rules states that a car with a blue flag has time to move aside up to three blue flags before he will get a penalty or disqualified, so for Vettel to b*tch on the radio like that confirms how pathetic a driver he really is. Alonso was taken out two times not by his own fault, first by Grosjean then by Kimi, so in perspective, he lost the championship by that two incident, Vettel on the other hand retired in Valencia on his own cars fault not by others.. You never hear Alonso talk like that. I hope drivers gang up on him in Brazil, I bet he will sh*t his pants and cry back to Horner if he didn't win the championship.

It's a pity on what happened also to Webber, WTF does all the problem appears of Webber's car. Yes there is #1 driver but Massa's Ferrari never broke down, it is still as reliable as Alonso. All that Webber can do is shake his head, sorry mate you should have changed team when you had the chance.

I can understand, in the heat of that moment, after being hounded by Hamilton, venting a little at being passed. Nothing wrong with that, and he did get back onto Hamilton just fine. Unfortunately, the back-markers were not to be encountered again, so opportunities to reverse the pass did not come. This was an excellent race between two drivers of equal capability in well matched car- could have ended either way. Seb leaving room for a safe Hamilton pass was excellent, and showed he was emotionally together, regardless of the radio rant.

I though Vettel was very lucky not cause a crash when Hamilton went for the pass, because he jinked to the right and Hamilton only missed his right rear by a tiny amount..

The thing is Hamilton was able to get within DRS a few times without the aid of backmarkers, although he couldn't get close enough in the first sector to make the DRS work for him. There was nothing Karthikeyan could do in that slow moving chicane of a HRT, Vettel just got "unlucky".. But since I regard Vettel as one of the luckiest champions in recent years.. He was bound to have some bad luck eventually.. I have a feeling this bad luck may follow him in Brazil.
