congradulations to vettel on all his achievements. with many mini heart attacks you gave us in brazil, I think you never stopped believing even in a single lap. seriously f1 journalists should be educated a bit more on rules and lot of other stuff. they bring the sport into disrepute by sometimes simply being colour blind. I deserve to be the race director, but charlie has the job isn't it. so deserving doesn't count for anything, but having won does.
