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.

Ok...it's stupid season. I'm getting so sick of the haters and conspiracy theorists and people who don't know anything about F1 whining that they are bored. People, get over it. There are not conspiracies. Vettel and Webber drive the same car and Webber has shown he can quali just as good as Vettel....well almost anyway. Every car on the grid goes through checks by the stewards and are held to the regulations. Fact of the matter is that RBR isn't too fast, the other teams are just too slow. It's their fault if they don't find the best talent available in the factory and on the track. It's their fault if they don't invest in the R&D and attention to detail required to win. If people want racing where there is a new winner every week then they need to follow NASCAR or pressure the other teams to step it up. As for Vettel, what is he supposed to do? Park midway through the race and then see if he can still win. Oh and get over Multi-21. Vettel was not the first driver to ignore team orde

Bmendon ,Seb and Marks car are very different.
, Mark would struggle to get his knees and elbows into sebs cockpit and under dash. , the clutch, cockpit, brake bias control system very different ergo ...the car is designed around sebs frame and then modified to suit marks height ft 6'1 and a weight difference.....Marks kers is a smaller and longer ..Marks dual clutch release system is a different ergo .....and because of this Mark car is compromised in releasing and biting ,, and his kers design has been plagued by heat issues for years.......look at the mechical issues and failures between the 2 cars....often happens between short and tall drivers....one driver frame is compromised with design and engineering..., l am not saying Mark is a better driver but the car suits seb.......Newey builds tight compact cars.

Now you are blaming Vettel for having a height advantage??!

No matter how good the car is, the fact that he doesn't crash while keeping it ahead of the rest is worthy of supreme admiration...

The fact that he does it with ease and obscene deltas is to be truly awe some.

bob jane. vettels car and webbers ar different? what planet do you live on. a tub is homologated and all tubs have to be the same. in fact, drivers can switch cars around during the season! as for marks kers being smaller? no. you cannot put different kers packaging into two different car. and now marks clutch is different? wow! no , the difference is how mark uses it, and he even admitted that himself. as for kers problems, seb has had every bit as many problems with his, did you listen to radio messages in Singapore?

Richard l am from the planet of gets your facts right....Did l mention the Tub? Marks ergos are completely different to Sebs...Do you think a professional F1 driver can release a clutch? a dual release system it isn't rocket science are you aware of the process???You think the races Mark could not get off the line might of had something to do mechanical? or hit the wrong lever Geez ? has Horner just again last month said ,We need to fix Marks Clutch issues? go check your facts regarding mechanical issues between the 2 cars since the "Seb " design cars RB6 and Marks retro fit cars onwards.....Do you think all up grades. first go into sebs car if there isn't time between races to fit both?...
not saying it is wrong .makes sense..but don't tell me the cars are the same.

bob jane. read your post again. you said that webber would struggle to get into sebs car. I pointed out that that the tubs are the same, so how on earth would webber have difficulty fitting in, if he can fit his own?

horner said they have to fix marks clutch problems....yes, he has to work with mark to get marks fingers working better! webber is unable to feel the bite point accurately, but that is HIS problem, nothing to do with the car. he is supposed to set this on the formation lap, and admitted that he has a problem with it.

and vettel has hadevey bit as many problems with his car as webber has. note that in Singapore, vettel had a kers issue, but drove around it.

Richard you are right l have all my facts and data wrong..the red bulls are the same cars clones of each other identical,, and mark cannot release a clutch his fingers are lacking sensitivity ( most prolly why he drove off the track and lost the wdc)....Oh and the breakdowns and mechanical incidents have been the same over the years together ,,, aeros upgrades and front and rear wings have been shared evenly by both cars...And Mark has had equal treatment at redbull......................................OMFG,,,, l cannot be bothered..

bob jane, I know we dont agree, but this time you are 100% spot on! Last season at the Chinese GP they had 2 different cars, Vettel wasnt happy with the car he drove in Malaysia so they modified the exhurst outlet on his car, during the race Vettel kept on shouting down the radio that he no power down the long straight.

I now regularly hear the TV commentators saying....oh no! Not again! Yet another technical problem with Mark's car! He is such an unlucky driver.

They never say that about Seb's car.
