sv definately has the capacity to up his game from the level he is at now, he may have been lucky landing in an adrian newey car, but he still had to beat his team mate and everyone else. he has possibly been pretty competitive in almost every f1 race he has finished

Rather like Schumacher he has a built-in advantage, in this case it is a car designed by Adrien Newry. Like Schumacher he has taken every advantage of his situation and will continue to do so as long as Newry continues to be streets ahead of the competiton. I forsee him going on to win more championships than Schumacher assuming he has'nt become too bored by the lack of competition in F1. At present there is nobody to touch Newry but hopefully that will change in years to some or when he retires.

This is the scary part. A soon to be a 4 time WDC imho, like seriously who thinks he won't win this year? 4 championships and the guy can still improve is truly a scary thought. Should be interesting to see though with all the new regs next year, where the top dogs will be, and of course who doesn't want to see the fireworks go off in Alonso's garage haha

Mr Logical, It's NEWEY not Newry!

And if Newey or Newry was so far ahead of the competition why did Vettel only win the championship by 3 points in 2012 and 4 points in 2010, 2 of the closest championships in history.
Also why has the other RBR car never finished in the top 2 of the championship? last year it was 6th and it's currently 5th, did Newey/Newry not design Webber's car?

Richard, LOL @ Mettle Vettel.

PS I think you mean Abu Dhabi, Austin was Lulu's greatest race where he overtook someone. I'd agree Abu Dhabi was a stunning drive, Vettel's coming of age and people still say he cant race lol.

That's It!

There aren't any "fast cars", they all trade off various advantages for the car and driver to be QUICKER

Fast Car was an excellent Song from Tracy Chapman....

Warning - I will hunt down the next "Fastest Car" poster , Fart in their general direction and pour liquid cement through their letter box!
