seems the German has a short memory. is it fair, mr vettel, to compare your results with others when you won 4 championships in a car that was far more superior than any other on the grid?

stuey. well if you actually watched the races, you would see that it was indeed the cars fault, apart from two wrong strategy calls by the team.

sw. yes, it was amazing how webber finished second every year in such a superior car. :p

He's right when it comes to points scored of course, but if you stick with the times they've both had their cars working properly Ricciardo still has the upper hand, so... cry me a river.

If penalties are to be expected, it will be even harder for Vettel to try to equal Ricciardo, from now on.
Fan of Vettel still I am, but not an one-eyed one.Therefore, I think that, if he wants to get some credit for the "unfair" thing, there is only one way left at his hand :beat Daniel in every race remained, otherwise the thing "frustration" will be the one for history.

He's right. It's only 11 races of a new era and Ricciardo's not had to face any real pressure yet or had any notable bad luck since Malaysia. Seb's had bad luck in Australia Spain Monaco Canada Austria Britain and Hungary and without it the intra-team battle would be a lot closer than it is.

sodesu yeah but i'm not surprised in Qualifying at least. If people saw Ricky in a Toro Rosso they'll have seen that he was constantly dragging that car into Q3 and scoring points in it. In Qualifying especially Ricky could beat lulu in the same car because his one lap pace is brilliant
