He's clearly punching well above the car's potential, with a mixture of pace, good tactical calls and a knack of not getting involved in incidents. I can't see him sustaining a title challenge over the whole season, but he's done more to support the idea that he's been outperforming the car with Massa at roughly the car's natural level. My only real nagging doubt about calling him the best of his generation is 2007, Lewis beating him as a rookie. He really didn't settle at McLaren, and perhaps got into a negative frame of mind once it was clear he couldn't dominate things there. However, Lewis and Vettel have both shown petulant self-centered moments too.
