While Sebs performance is impressive every time, it is not exciting: Like the Weber Spa overtake, Alonso overtakes, Lewis, Kimi etc. It is all about stats and calculated driving with Seb and in this time where the racing is almost decided off track, racing brought to us by Kimi, Lewis, Alonso, Rosberg and Webber is what the sport and its fans need.

Obviously you missed his move on Alonso at Monza and countless other moves he's done.

There should be no question marks now regarding seb's ability to race wheel to wheel.

I've rated Nico for ages especially going back to his Williams day but I wouldn't put him in the spectacular list.

The times that Seb actually raced wheel to wheel are few. Yes he has the ability, but most of the time it is to calculated. That's why people don't rate him so high as a racer and a champ, which is a shame. Because chasing Vettel in a Red Bull made better drivers of the rest of the grid. The rest know that there is no room for error, because Red Bull and Seb rarely make a mistake.

Pain (in the...) Did you watch Abu Dhabi last year?

To criticise a driver for being calculated is ridiculous, being successful in F1 is all about being calculated and precise it's not about throwing cars around like dodgems and hoping the other guys get out of your way. If that's your thing you should be following NASCAR not F1.

Why is Senna more loved than Prost as a racer? Never said that its wrong and that Seb should be a hooligan driver. But flair and a bit of hooliganism in racing is why we watch the sport for. Taking the best designed motorsports cars "dancing", pulling moves that show hart and determination. It is not wrong how he approach the sport and he has some hooligan and lot of flair, but it is rarely on the track. Why do Kimi just want to go fast and not be disturbed when racing?

So what are we talking about most loved or best driver?

Loved is about personality, image, aura and best is the one that does the winning.

If Vettel started walking a dog around the paddock, crashed more often and won less often would you love him more?

thepain. I don't understand your argument. do you want a playboy who will act as a hooligan on the track, to the detriment of others? everybody is different, but usually the best drivers are the ones who let their driving do the talking, and then have a relaxed persona away from the track. schumi and vettel are great examples of this, as is kimi to a lesser extent. other who try to cultivate their playboy image (no names mentioned), are the losers.

Maybe if you follow the fact that the discussion is about on track racing, you would see that personality has nothing to do with it. The love for Lewis is ever so present in almost every post you make. Personality does not determine the driver. Like I said before: It is all about the on track performance. Yes Seb is great. It is not about Newey for me. But simply, who will come out on top if everybody had the same car "Top Gear". Unfortunately that is not how f1 work and yes Seb play the game great. But which journey is more fallowed? “The kid who is serious about his maths and rarely have fun or the kid who has fun while doing the maths (with both getting A's)?
