Sebastian Vettel says there is nothing to say he will stay with Red Bull forever - but also states that there is currently no reason why he'd want to leave

The USGP 2012. Vettel and Hamilton qualified extremely well, both started well and both separated themselves from their respective team mates in quite dramatic fashion. In a mano a mano showdown everything Vettel did Hamilton did a little better. On a new track, perfect for passing Vettel became flustered, making uncharacteristic mistakes. The result tells a convincing story as all systems were go, both cars were working well. It takes some ability to do that. Anyone care to comment ?

@rob01 Mclaren supported Hamilton since before he was born - but he's gone.

@andrew2k, As to why Vettel would leave the team with the "best" car, read what he said: “Perhaps I will compete for another team in five years because I feel ready for a fresh challenge."
... it would have to be Ferrari though, wouldn't it?

@ 35edme - I regard Hami higher than Vettel.. but still..

In 2012 US GP, Vettel was fighting for championship and Hamilton was doing a little glory run. So the stakes are higher for Vettel and hence lesser risk taking from him.

The only thing I am not sure of is if he is always honest (with himself). One minute he says he misunderstood what had been said when given the Multi 21 call in Malaysia, then he apologises for doing the wrong thing, then says he had nothing to apologise for. Other than that, all fair comment by Seb.

f1 history is full of drivers wanting to drive for certain designers, aa long as newey is there he may not want to leave. although i read recentlysuggestions that james allison could be being lined up as neweys successor (i recall the hiring of james key at str was also part of the same plan).

I'm not saying that either is the better driver but I think the US GP is a bad example.
First off, I'd say the McLaren was obviously the fastest car at that stage of the championship.
Secondly, it took a Narain Karthikeyan that wouldn't get out of the way for LH to catch up to SV. Before that point LH wasn't able to close up to him at all. And on top of that it was a DRS pass.

Now don't get me wrong, it was a brilliant pass by Lewis who was able to capitalize on that one chance he had, but I don't think it's a fair judgement of their abilities versus oneanother.
