I personally disagree with this. A hat trick of WDC's is enough, especially in the modern age of F1.

And if Newey's designs take the sheen of Vettel's success, what is DC's excuse for his lack of achievement during his time at McLaren?

Alonso has yet to win the WC for another time, so surely by couthards calculations, he too is not a great....and look at what happened when alonso moved to Mclaren, he was beaten by Hamiltion in his rookie season....Vettel, lets not forget, won in a Torro Rosso, did alonso win in a Minardi? No, so i think Vettel is ahead ....?

Phil, Hamilton and Alonso finished level on points, Alonso should be at least a 4 time WDC , and that toro Rosso was a very good car, alonsos minardi was the worst car on the grid,

Jimmy, fair enough, although from memory the torro rosso was average, i would not say very good, but i agree the minardi was a dog. i think therefore that couthard should not get too hung up on Vettel having to move somewhere else, specifically a crap car say, just to say he is a legend....surely great drivers seek great cars and why shouldn't they, but it doesn't make them any less of a legend?
