I don't understand this Lulu hero worship. Some of it has to be propaganda of some sort. I mean the guy is F1's most overrated driver. Who else has had all these accolades poured on him only to deliver very little if you look at the record? In F1 a driver HAS to consistently THROTTLE his teammate in order to prove that he is an exceptional driver. Lulu hasn't done that. Nico might be the one to really let him have it. After all Nico hasn't been in a fast car since his debut, but he did compare favorably to Schumi, a seven time world champion. Nico might be a better driver than Alonso. We'll see, because Lulu THROTTLED Alonso in the same car in 2007, so if Nico beats Lulu in this, Lulu's SEVENTH season, then what else could any wise man deduce?

What r u talking? Like Schumi, Vettel will be beaten by an driver decade younger than him whenever it will be.

None of the current champions r younger than Seb. None of the race winners in the history of f1 are younger than Vettel who has already won 26 times and has 3 c'ships.

angie. that is what i am saying. the more titles that seb gets, the harder it will be for him. everybody expects a multiple champion to go on for ever, but that is impossible.
now if seb is beaten this year, there will be those who will be posting claiming " it proves he is no good...it proves it is only the car etc" that is what happened when schumis winning streak came to an end.

the simple fact is that even if seb won no more races etc, he will still have achieved far more than nearly every other driver ever.

if he wins a 4th title, it will be even more difficult to win a 5th etc. to win three on the trot is a remarkable achievement, so that is why i think a fourth is more difficult, and so on.

Richard, i don't see it as making a difference if Seb wins the title or not. Last year is a perfect example. He won his third in a row and by a mass majority nearly all claimed Alonso to be the best on the grid. And the two years before that everyone claimed its Newey and the Car. Personally i give him all the credit in the world for a three peat in a Spec series.
