Umm, you think he cares? He's a soon to be 4 time world champion, making tons of money, and living life. Heck if I could do what he was doing and the only negative are people I personally don't know boo me, sign me up is all I have to say. Happens with all talents, and right now the best driver car combination has and is vettel and rbr simple as that.

much being said about the booing by Italian "fans". yes it is bad, just as bad as the cheering by british fans when vettels car broke down, and when schumi broke his leg!

bigotry exists everywhere.

but back to topic...I got the impression that webber was in "help ferdi" mode again, just as he was last year. never made any attempt to get past ferdi to give seb extra points. he really is bitter.

Richard, so true, bigotry exist everywhere but the worst bigotry is when a bigot with a pedigree certificate start screaming about the boos at the race winner at Monza all out of his hurt at the end result of the race.
At Silverstone the most telling moment was not when Lulu's left rear exploded, it was when SV coasted to a halt, the significance was not the car failing him, it was the reaction of the crowd, their roaring, whooping, crowing delight at such bad luck made for a pretty undignified spectacle, had it been MW the crowd would have been sympathetic, it was vitriolic towards SV, make no mistake, this was personal, it's a manifestation of the pleasure found in having a new figure to hate. To be continued.

Continued, what poisoned their view of SV was not what he did, it was the fact that a lot was expected from their Lulu and the fact that an Australian was being pulped and minced is considered one of them.
This is a new trend in hate introduced by these newcomers to the F1 scene, one hardly read such hate from any other driver supporters against other drivers, that's the difference in bigotry.
PS, all said is what I personally believe, and this is as you know not from a SV or RBR supporter.

Sunny, i thought they were in Italy. Could it be also that they are tired of Vettel crushing an Italian team? I am glad i DO NOT have to hear this press you are talking about on a daily basis. Its not un common for anyone who dominates a sport to become boo'ed. And for sure a driver who screams crazy frog and points his fingers all over the place.
