Sebastian Vettel might have looked supremely confident watching the end of qualifying from pit lane, but he admitted afterwards that he'd been very nervous watching events play out.

It was a bit strange the decision of the team to not allow Vettel making the second run. Is normal that he was nervous but in the end it was the right decision and Vettel will benefit from a set of fresh tyres tomorrow. Credit to the team, it looks that they believe in Vettel more than he believes in himself.

Did anyone actually watch that lap? He was so fast and so smooth. It looked like he was well within his limits. That's the difference when you look at the others. You can see them pushing and in some cases over-driving in an attempt to go faster. When Vettel pushes he actually looks smoother. He places the car beautifully for each corner and comes off the apex with so much control.

WadeAusI think Ptolemy was making reference to the fact that Mark was some way off Sebs time, once again suggesting that its not just about the car. They would be first and second - and thats hardly ever the case. Vettel is better than his car - albeit a good car.

Thank you for clarifying that tomcol. Yes, If the car is the only reason Sebastian has dominated F1 for the last few years, as some would suggest, then why hasn't Webber too? Webber tends to come in 4-5th in quali, race, and points. Seb tends to do 1-2nd. I'll say it again. Webber is a good driver, but if there were 2 Webbers driving the Bulls, then we would have seen NO Red Bull driver's championships or constructor's championships.
Its a very good car, but so is Sebastian Vettel.
