Ofcourse I was joking !
Fastest lap is more about commitment and skill and less about being in the fastest car.
The same applies on four and two wheels as it was generally acknowledged.

congradulations to vettel on all his achievements. with many mini heart attacks you gave us in brazil, I think you never stopped believing even in a single lap. seriously f1 journalists should be educated a bit more on rules and lot of other stuff. they bring the sport into disrepute by sometimes simply being colour blind. I deserve to be the race director, but charlie has the job isn't it. so deserving doesn't count for anything, but having won does.

This year, fastest lap has more than anything been about being in the right place at the right time - because of the tyres. If you're the last one to do your pit stop and go on the soft compound, you'll have a very light car and very fresh rubber, meaning you have a very good chance of getting fastest lap as most others are on tyres nearing the end of their cycle as their cars are the lightest.

Senna, for example, is on that list because a late puncture in Spa made him pit very late in the race, putting him in this position.

Vettel, however, has scored many fastest laps despite NOT being in this position so still quite impressive I'd say. But to say that these figures somehow reflect on the drivers' skill more than any other result is just complete and utter rubbish.

How about an award for the most overtaking moves in the year?

Just wondering, has anyone summed up the total numbers of overtaking the drivers have done this year. What I know is just Abu Dhabi and Brazil alone, in both races Vettel had to work his way from the back of the field to the front, and not just once, but twice in each race.

Ok fair, in Abu Dhabi his car was setup for better straight line speed to overtake, but in Brazil, his car was definitely f***ed after the damages sustained from Turn 4 collision, with total loss of straight line thrust to even challenge Kobi.

I am not surprised that he is the driver with the most overtaking moves in 2012.

Its so funny I have no time for Alonso at all, he acts like a spoilt brat most of the time, always sulking.

Watching Vettel breaking every single record Alonso has ever set in Formula 1 and people still don't give Vettel the credit he now deserves.
