"...it must be a plus being with a team that builds all the components." L.H.

ALL the components? Get real. In any case, this doesn't seem to be the case in modern F1. The restrictive one-engine format, spec ECU, RPM limits, spec tires, transmission restrictions, endurance requirements, fuel efficiency (2014) factors, etc... pretty much erase any advantage a works team might bring to the table.

That's what I first thought but then realised he wants to unseat Kimi of his current 4th place in the championship..

Also to say "it must be a plus being with a team that builds all the components" implies that Vettel's performance since 2010 have been rather understated.

Of course this all ignores the white hot news that after only 9 months the hat is now the right material, colour and shape. Praise be.
