Well Alonso didn't have as many wins as Vettel this year, Vettel has come from the back of the pack a few times, Never seen Shuey let anyone pass him that easily before but hey maybe he got a radio msg Micheal, Seb is faster than you.... hahaha
Massa has yet again had to slow down to let Alonso past, what goes around comes around. I hope Massa has a really good start to 2013 season and then we can all watch Alonso throw his toys out of his pram like he did at Maclaren when they wouldn't order Lewis to back off in his Rookie season, Red Bull have the drivers and constructer championships. And you, the Alonso fanboi's, are still trying to tell us that he is the peoples champion, oh yeah right, NOT. Anyone but Alonso 2013 lol

bob. no, vettel did NOT pass under yellows. the stewards have stated that only the oil flag was out, and also koba was entering pit road. there was no reason for a yellow flag. and koba was in the pit road and was off the track anyway, so even if there had been a yellow, there could still be no penalty.

dont forget, the stewards have full access to gps, light printouts, etc etc

the race is run, the result is the result,

Both men deserved it, but Alonso drove one of the greatest seasons I've ever seen. Vettel was easily the best man last year, and probably outdid Alonso in 2010 too, but I wanted Alonso to win today because I feel no-one has driven better.

Hulkenberg drove well, many people made that mistake, the only problem was that there was another car there. That disappoints me, other drivers made worse mistakes at Turn One, so it isn't the mistake being punished, it's the outcome.

And after what happened last week at COTA so should Ferraribe ashamed. And Webber could have dropped back to let Vettel gain another place if they had needed to. But they didn't need to unlike the way that Alonso needed Massa to slow down for Alonso.

Whenever the race is not an easy pole position and an easy race without obstacles, Vettel struggles.

If Vettel had received penalties like everybody else, instead of countless warnings, he would have not won this championship and I think Hulkenberg paid the steward's bad conscience for their previous decisions, because that penalty was rubbish, obviously aimed to help Alonso.

some of the posters are saying that Alonso was aided by Massa playing the team game but Vettel did it all on his own without any help from Webber !!!! didn't I see MW move over to let Vettel pass or did I misread that ? BEFORE the Vettel fans start getting their knickers in a bunch, I'm not critising OK in fact I'm probably in a minority when I say I'm in favour of team orders BUT ONLY WHEN ONE DRIVER HAS A SHOT unlike in previous years ..... if you know what I mean
