Vettel would have everyone believe that he has always been a perfect driver. It was Riciardo's fault that he swerved and hit the distance marker when behind the safety car, in Abu Dhabi this year, damaging his front wing. Yeah right!
Let us not forget that, in his 2007 rookie year, when driving for Torro Rosso in the queue behind the safety car, he smashed into the back of his current team mate, Mark Webber, putting them both out of the race and was later seen in tears at the back of the Torro Rosso garage. People in glass houses.....

ratchet. you obviously have something against vettel.
you mention his clash with webber in 2007. it was accepted by all that it was not his fault. the accident was caused by lulu and the rules were changed as a result of what lulu did! also remember, vettel was 19 at the time, so understandably he would be upset at the incident.

were you never emotional?

of course i do not know exactly what was said at the briefing, and neither does anyone else here.

You see, here is the problem Richard...your take is that maybe NK isn't being truthful about what was said in the briefing? Why not accept the NK is being truthful about this rather than make a comment like that? You set yourself up for this tbh.

I would accept what he said, then accept that Seb was frustrated and isn't perfect like the rest of us as i mentioned in an earlier post, we all agree he was held up (i think)but he was held up due to NK following advice from CW and Seb was there so should know that.

End of story

Am I the only one who just thought it was a 'racing incident'?

Leader comes up to lap a slower car at a part of the track where the slower car couldn't get out the way (and we've since learned was instructed not to get out the way).

Bad luck Seb, he might have caught him anywhere on the circuit, but fate dictated it was in that particular section where overtaking is impossible. It's the way the dice roll sometimes.

Well done Lewis for taking advantage, and no hard feelings Nariyayayayayayayaannnanna (no idea of the spelling) because you did what you were supposed to do.

Or is it just me who feels this way?

oli. despite all the flak that i am getting, i fully agree with you! i have never blamed one driver or the other, but merely stated the simple fact that seb lost time behind nk. nevertheless, i see that i am now being accused of claiming that nk is lying!

funny place , this forum!
