Then give him a better car - simple. Although in race trim there didn't appear to be much difference. It was in qualifying where Ferrari needed to improve a lot.

Vettel and Alonso both had two DNFs but Vettel had no control over his while Alonso caused one of his by trying to push Kimi off the track and and expecting Kimi to back off.

You guys were spreading all that bad karma around with the wire snips in Texas, cutting that gearbox seal in order to gain more favorable grid position in a dirty way.
What do you expect?

Alonso certainly provide more emotions,Vettel has no glory wins when he win a race most of the time it is from pole we don t see him after except at the checker flag.
I was disappointed because now there seems to be a rule that you must not get in the way of a fast car fighting for the championship it seem like the driver just get out of the way when they see vettel coming at them because they don t want to be seen as the bad guy who interfere, but in fact by not racing they make it too easy, it is like they are blue flag , it was so clear. Massa was able to hold vettel but webber, schumacher, and other just let him through with no fight.

Did he win the race? champion? NO and NO? was a good PR for Ferrari? NO. Massa slow down, Massa don't close the gap! Could Ferrari had won the construction championship if they had encouraged Massa to be more punchy and ace to win than a lap dog for Alonso.

No he didn't deserve the title. He gave it his best as did Vetel and the best driver got it. All the critism against Vetel's skill should be put to rest. A driver could not have a more go wrong for him as did Vetel in Brazil - Still he kept calm drove around the problems, without a radio - straight line speed gone and he finished Champion. Alonso had some great races too but does not deserve it more then Vetel. The best driver out there won the championship in a car that was stripped down for it genius engineering. Bulls also struggled first half of the season. Ferrari couldn't deliver to the same level as the RB's!!! Well done RB and vetel! Luke

Looking at the season, his big mis-judgement in Suzuka, and scoring zero points stands out, one error in a season of brilliant performances. Possibly the worse DRS system out of the top five teams didnt help either

Vettel's quote on SKY

"Sebastian Vettel has claimed Red Bull had to contend with "dirty tricks" during the course of the season as they battled for their third consecutive championship double. A lot of people tried to play dirty tricks but we did not get distracted by that and kept going our way and all the guys gave a big push right to the end," he told TV reporters. We remained ourselves throughout the whole year, even though people did some things that we would never consider to do, trying to achieve our targets," he told journalists.

"But it's not in our hands, and it's not our job to rate and to comment so much. We have to make sure we do our own homework"
