F1 » Vettel dazzles under the lights at Singapore


An unassailable Sebastian Vettel left the rest of the field grasping at shadows under the floodlights in Singapore, but a safety car and divergent pit strategies led to an exciting finish further back.

I swear, some of you could hear a musician give an outstanding live performance only to say it was because of a cheater instrument or the acoustics were rigged. Vettel is an excellent driver with an excellent car. What would you expect from that combination?

I'll bet the fans in Korea wont be booing Seb when he wins there. The fans are probably 1/2 Japanese and 1/2 Korean. The Koreans don't know whats going on, but when they see a blue car half a track ahead of everyone else, they'll know its something special. The Koreans don't have any ulterior motives like the UK fans pissed because Hamilton didn't win, or the Italians pissed because Vettel isn't wearing a red suit, or the Aussies because Webber is Aussie and being pummelled. The Japanese fans will be cheering when Seb wins because they KNOW whats going on.
When Seb comes to Texas and wins it, I'm pretty sure he will be treated right. If not, then its time for me to move back to Germany for good.

What all these stupid people who boo a winner don't understand is, what hasn't killed him only has made him stronger. He will surely lap the rest of the field come Korea, and you will just have a pleasure of booing again, while he gets 25 points and a well deserved 4th championship. Keep booing, the kid takes it well, if you haven't noticed.

Richard, yes those that boo are F1 fans, they are certainly in a minority, they are certainly fanatics to the point of being certainly a disgrace to the sports.
I personally don't believe that this time the booing was done by Singaporeans/locals that attended the race.

Sorry but that was one of the most exception drives ive seen from Vettel, beaten to the first corner and ahead again by the second.

For most of the race he was taking 1.5 to 2 seconds a lap out of the rest of the field. Thats not just the car. That is the Best Driver in the World.

Alonso getting second was good luck and brilliant strategy. Had the safety car not come out he would have struggled to finish 5th.

Vettel did everything that could be expected of him. Maybe Alonso, Kimi or Lewis could have done the same in the RBR but we will never know. I doubt they would have done better. Alonso had a bit of luck go his way and took advantage of it to good effect. Kimi drove a superb race from 13th to 3rd. All things considered I really enjoyed the race.

I felt bad for Webber having his engine blow on the last lap. That must have been a real kick in the guts for him after driving so well to stay ahead of the two Mercedes.

Richard, again I can't agree with you more or said it better myself about Bob Jane, must be an Aussie.

I also think Vettel has come of age this year, very gracious in his victories and a likeable bloke.
