no one cares. vettel is very good driver. but he's over rated in some ways ala casey stoner. both love fast machines and prefer to drive ahead and alone on the competition.

next. i know this is very difficult (subject to company dev processes). but i'm convinced that if:

a)lulu has same car
b)alonso has same car
c) vettel has came car

trust me vettel will not even win 1/3 races (6 assuming 18 races). both lulu and alonso will whack vet's candy .... you know what i mean :p

now i'm not vet hater. but fact is fact. also results are results too. i mean 3 years WC in a row covers his machines pros plus his famous lady luck in this year. isn't it?

I think there should be looking more at the fact that vettel
Caused a collision at the race start and was not given a penalty
When later on hulkenburg slid into Hamilton and was given a penalty !

hey richard - so you don't think Mr Ferrari ever got up to dirty tricks?? Remember the Italian GP '76, when McLaren were found guilty of using illegal fuel - which just happened to have been supplied by AGIP, rather than their usual supplier, Texaco? - and also remember everything that went on at Brands the same year.....But maybe you would be best asking someone like "Big John" Surtees about tricks......or the Shelby team in the World GT championships in the '60's. Bob Bondurant and Peter Brock could enlighten you on what went on there!!!

To be perfectly fair, the video in circulation was quite low quality due to recapping and the bad weather affecting visibility and I probably wouldn't have spotted the flag waving man after a 100 watches, so fans and Ferrari did have a valid challenge albeit a little too late.

Obviously a lot of Ferrari haters on here, and I must admit I'm usually one of them.. But I can understand why they would want to challenge the result considering how close it all ended up being.

Where to start Tesla

Anyone can drive fast but to win you have to look after the car. Something that Lewis blames all the failures on the team.

He threw away the championship his first year, Glock gifted him the championship the next year. But since then he has been an also ran.

Alonso and Vettel are more calculated about what's going on, and there's very little between them. Currently the Ferrari and McLaren are faster cars than the Red Bull, but Vettel's skill is still getting him wins and fastest laps. Alonso also finished on the podiums regularly in an uncompetitive car, there's the skill.

I think a lot of people think Vettel won his championships because he has the best car. This is doing him a dis-service.

Year 1 - Ferrari messed up their strategy for Alonso
Year 2 - The car was better than the rest.
Year 3 - Did well in the second best car.

Like Alonso, Vettel will be one of F1's greats. Will Lewis, next season will show us. Hopefully he turns it around at Mercedes.

tesla, that vettel will be beaten by alonso and hamilton is just wishful thinking by you.

alo and ham are not the be all and end all that they would like to be. i wonder what happens when other upstarts like perez, bottas, hulkenberg or frijns emerge as title contenders in the near future. are you still going on about ham and alo the only deserving chumps or when is this nonsense gonna end. deal with it there have been f1 drivers before alo and ham arrived and after them. raikkonen beat both of them anyway in 2007. vettel is a three times wdc and they are not ! deal with it.
