I never used to be a Vettel fan... but I'm slowly becoming one.

Honestly, what evidence do we have that the RB car is the best? If there were two Webbers driving for RBR would we still say it was the best car? With 0 drivers titles and 3rd, 3rd, 6th in the last 3 years WDC.

In the four years they have been team-mates, Vettel has 246 more points than Webber, which is huge in anyone's book.

Also, often when 'true driving skill' is put to the test, Seb comes out ahead of FA and LH (like the first laps of a wet qualy session for example).

He also overtakes as well as anyone, and better than most... so yes he is great, and knocking him is pure denial of his skill because you don't like his personality.

@FerAlo I used that example as all four cars were working well, they all qualified well but my main point is that each N01driver quickly established himself on a level, not just above the field but above his team mate in an equal car. It was pure Vettel vs Hamilton. Lap after lap Hamilton kept eating into Vettels lead meaning that he had to have been driving more quickly. Vettel had a lead, Hamilton cut it, no argument that could only happen by one car outperforming the other. Vettel made a few uncharacteristic mistakes before the Narain incident. Every place the Red Bull was usually better before it no longer was. That would be due either to it being under driven or the other car being over driven. Recheck the lap times during the chase.

35. or it could be due to the red bull being pegged back by alterations to the rules? you just cannot take one race and claim that is an authorative example. all tracks are different and different cars have advantages on one or another. and wasn't the 2012 nthe FIRST race on a new track, so there is even less relevance.
the only result that matters is the one in the wdc at the end of the season.

I would have thought the team championship more worthly than a driver winning richard. And if red bull was pegged by alterations to the rules they were lucky to have been able to use them and gain an advantage.

rob. just as every winning manufacturer has been able to do since the advent of motor racing, and as merc are trying to do now, and as macca were trying to do with the f duct etc etc... it is called PROGRESS and INNOVATION.

(or should I refer you to FRICKING in the oil industry??)

In my own fantasy, I'd like to see Kimi and Vettel switch cars right now. If Vettel could podium every race the rest of the season in the Lotus, as Kimi almost has, no one would doubt Vettel's skills.
If he mid packed it, you would have your alternate answer.
