Kiwi, Interesting theory, of course if this jealousy theory was correct one could assume that these jealous individuals would also be calling Vettel, Alonso and Kimi disparaging names, but they don't.

So it seems like your theory has a flaw....

lu lu needs to shut up and worry about winning a race, and stop telling the media who he wants to drive for....he is starting to sound like a desperate oaf.
Ferrari, the bulls? what next Vanwell?
Considering the cars he has driven and the team support as number 1,not to mention being given a championship by default, he has underachieved IMO.
l am a bit over Lewis and his blabbering...and the pommy media.

Lulu needs to concentrate on 2013 and on staying in front of Nico Rosberg. To hell with the "Vettel Fascination." He met with Red Bull, and Christian told him kindly to "get lost."
Wonder if Ross Brawn will step in again and protect his "investment" by radioing to Nico and saying...
"Nico, we just need you to stay right behind Lulu's gearbox for the next 30 laps" or whatever... ???

Though I don't particularly like the way Hamilton handles himself a lot of the times, to me his driving talent is unquestionnable.

Yes he did not thrash Button in terms of points but he was clearly faster than Button, he just got tangled up in too many incidents to convert it to points (and yes, that is also his responsibility, but let's face it...if Button and Hamilton would have been teammates at RBR these last couple of years, it would have been Hamilton winning the championships...just put the car on pole and drive away with no other cars in sight).

I think he wouldn't be out of his depth against any of the other top drivers, even if only because the difference between the top drivers probably isn't that big...not as big as people make it out to be anyway.

At some point in the future Vettel will probably be paired with some driver that has been a teammate to Alonso or Hamilton and then we'll know...sort of.

Lewis is sounding more self-absorbed by the day. If he wants to be remembered as a 'great' as he keeps saying, he needs to drop the lifestyle, elbow the dog (and I'm not talking about Nicole, hehe!) and just focus on one thing and one thing only. Winning a WDC with Mercedes!! Nothing less will do if he wants to be thought of in this way.

Got to deal with Rosberg first who, apart from team orders and two DNFs, would be at least level on points right now, and who is putting the lie to the idea that Lewis is in some kind of top 3 of speed on the grid right now.

@ Taipan,
it was probably just an oversight because I know how balanced your comments are but here's another of those stats you left out, didn't he impress against Alonso though ?!!!
@ pau1inel
Lulu is an affectionate nickname used by some, I'm sure they don't mean it, cos they're all just big ole cuddly bears really

EDIT by CRASH.NET! Inappropiate comment amended.

@Pau1inel - very good question. it is not something you would expect from your average adult

i have another question - why do people refer to vettel as 'seb'?

and then something else to consider - journalists ask him all sorts of questions all the time. why would he not be allowed to just say whatever is on his mind? i doubt there is a driver on the grid that would shy from any potential partnership really. these guys are competitive you know.

Vettel would still thrash him - not just on speed but consistency, race craft and intelligence.
Hamilton is a bit like Gilles villeneuve - very fast occasionally but didnt win much.
