Not only is Newey arguably the best designer in motor sport history but he can race as well. I was watching him at Goodwood and the guy was amazing behind a wheel he was teamed with another driver and they won so i for one will take take Newey's comments about Vettel with credibility.

Definitely the standout talent of this generation. I would love to see him switch to Mercedes or Ferrari. He'd win there as well. For those who claim it's just the car, where is Webber? He was touted a an outstanding talent when he was picked up by RB, but Seb has retired him, literally . Only the haters won't recognize his great talent. Niki Lauda said on German TV that he rated Vettel right up there with the very best ever. That's good enough for me.
Instead of complaining of dominance, his detractors should be grateful they are privy to bear witness to this great driver and sportsman.

Vettel is an all time great..India loves him and got the biggest appreciation .he may continue with RB and may be later to Mercedes which can be an all German team.The rule changes make F1 less exciting. Likely next year we may see them just slowly going around the track

taz. there were some of us who recognised his talent four or more years ago, and were heavily criticised for it! (Where are you spaghettieddie?)

ineresting to hear in the run up to the gp, that he spends a lot of his time at mecachrome, Pirelli etc, trying to learn more about the car. and even after the race yesterday, he stayed on for hors with the team, and kept thanking them.

Richard did you say previously that Seb was doing some kind of engineering course or did I imagine that?

Edit, Fook me you ask a civil question and still some tool hits the disagree button!

ty. yes, he was reported as studying for a degree. so may soon become DR SEB!

noway. Adrian is a good driver (sometimes) and is very laid back. in fact, he is so laid back, he can fit into a ford gt40 (original) but unfortunately totalled it, just as he did with his jag e-type!
