Again, seems like he'd do well to focus on trying to enjoy his racing rather than thinking about building his own legacy. Vettel won four titles, sometimes in a dominant fashion, yet you never heard him talk about winning anything more than the race ahead.

107SS2009: sodesu, Time doesn't stand still, doesn't wait for anybody, with just one
gifted championship in eight years I honestly don't blame him.

How 'gifted'? You aren't clutching at the Glock straw again are you?

Well Ferrari, rather than Glock, helped Hamilton more with their pitstop fiascos that season.

But the fact is that he scored 1 more point than Massa.

The Ferrari snafu argument has merit, but I don't see a barrage of whinges about Ferrari's tactics gifting the WDC to SV two years later....

yup staying a one hit wonder must be weighing on his mind constantly especially when his only competition has been ho hum until now in an equal machine. not winning the 2014 WDC will be very telling... probably not to his fans though, I'm sure they have their excuses all thought out and at the ready

I think the excuses will be coming from Toto, George, as they have been since the subsequent race after Lewis Hamilton's winning streak came to an end, and reliability became the fundamental force behind Nico's momentum.

The one with the most on his mind is FA. A two hit wonder.
