giveway. so its attack richard day , is it?

well when seb was drafted into the rbr team, webber WAS the team leader. or does your "knowledge" not stretch back that far? and even in 2010, webber was still the team leader. but after being beaten by seb, the balance shifted!
my remark about mark "should finish second" was in response to another poster who was claiming that vettels wins were only because of the car. if it was so dominant (which it wasn't), then mark should have had little trouble being second, especially in 2011, when the car WAS actually dominant.
as for grosjean...well despite his volatility, if he kept it n the road, then he could be a wdc in the rb, but unlikely if paired with seb.
finally, I have been following f1 since inception. your 5 years pales into insignificance now, doesn't it?

Vettel because of the car will always have doubt cast at his actual ability. History will record a remarkable German driver with at least 3 WDC's to his name.
To be classed as a great he should move to another team such as Ferrari who I agree, all drivers aspire to drive for. Then at least the spell of a Newey design could be put to bed and people recognise the talent he has. The flip of that is, if he fails to register a WDC at his new team he will forever be damned as a one trick pony Newey luck boy!
Personally I believe Alonso is his better and Hamilton whilst not as metronomic as Vettel, actually is a 'naturally faster racer. Vettel has a remarkable ability over all of them as 'consistent' in his racing. That's his skill for me. Allied with the RBR is a winning combination

I don't consider My logic makes him a one trick pony.
Whilst he has not won a WDC since leaving Benetton he has managed to win a considerable amount of races with an inferior car. Something Seb has yet to achieve. I am not saying he won't but until he leaves RBR and Newey we won't know for sure.

Alonso won 2 back to back championship in Renault, what has he done since? Driving in another car proves nothing except that some people here want Vettel to lose in another car... like they say "if it ain't broke don't fix it"

@Zelda the Benatton wasnt an inferior car, please do not say that again... 15 podiums in one season in 2005 14 in podiums in 2006. That was faster than the Ferrari's both season reliability issues hinder Kimi's chance at McLaren
