Not sure how complimenting another driver and NOT just saying it's all the car is sour grapes?!?! A driver has to make the best of the machinery he's given - and Vettel has definitely made the best of having the best car this year, whereas Webber is only just ahead of the others. Maybe his racecraft and overtaking needs to be improved - but if your car allows you to be out in front, you simply don't have cause to show these skills! Maybe in a lesser car we'd see this side more, who knows? I do think there are areas Vettel needs to develop, but I also think he has developed since last season. After Spa 10 I was sure he was going to have another 'crash kid' moment during the season but he didn't, and he hasn't yet in 11. Maybe not the finished article yet, but he's doing a great job with the car he's got. It's fair to question aspects of his driving which this season he hasn't had cause to evidence, but I find it very hard to criticise how he's performed on the whole this year.
