Yeah, Saw that from Alonso's OnBoard as well.

OnBoard-Mix was brilliant today, Pretty much always where it needed to be in terms of good racing/overtaking. Just a shame a brief Mid-race power failure corrupted my capture :x

Something about a finger.

No, the majority of it is entitled Ferrari\Kimi\Lewis fans who don't consider Sebastien to be on the same level. They won't change their minds now.

Vettel was fucking outstanding. That was a Senna/Schumacher performance. Yeah yeah I'm sure someone will say the car, but you'd have to be an idiot to suggest he wasn't in his own league today.

And di Resta is proving me right again. He's actually bloody good, and is proving that almost every race now.

I think that Seb, Fernando and Lewis are quite on the same level. I just don't cheer for Vettel, I think this is quite normal for racing fans and rivalry makes the sport better as long as it is on a nice and polite level.

We all know Vettel is the master of driving away into the distance with a clear track ahead. He never fails in this scenario. Might as well give him another WDC title already especially with the Pirelli changes coming up. Another dull season in the making :)

I don't get why Vettel gets criticism for taking pole, blitzing them to get out of DRS and then controlling the race.

Isn't that kind of what they're all trying to do?

But he's also come through the pack into high points positions too. And he's been outstanding in the rain, dry and mixed conditions. Basically no matter what you throw at that kid, he has an answer for it.

Seriously?

Do you understand the hate for Manchester Utd/Barcelona/Bayern Munich/Spanish National Team? The Hate for the Miami Heat? The Hate for the New England Patriots? The Hate for Serena Williams/Rafael Nadal/Djokovic e.t.c.? Same thing applies here.

People generally don't like dominance. Replace Vettel with Alonso. The same thing would happen. Lewis too. Whoever. Whatever little people can have against someone they'll take. All of the top drivers are pretty polarising though. You either love them or hate them. Fact remains three guys on the podium + Kimi are a cut above the rest imo.

I remember people actively cheering Schumacher crashing at Silverstone back in 1999. Sure they probably didn't know he'd broken his leg but the same thing happened. Some of the same people who like Vettel now probably hated Schumacher in his heyday.

Race got better as it wore on. I was considering ironing my shirt for work tomorrow around 30 laps in but a phone call later and suddenly everything got significantly better :p Great driver by Di Resta. Sutil shot himself in the foot.

Vergne was great. Good solid quiet drive.

Throwing a teammate like Raikkonen or Alonso hasn't happened yet so let me stay reserved on the praise :wave: Or removing Adrian Newey but that would be too obvious ;)

And props to Magnifico for nailing it on the head! :thumbsup:

Vettel may have won the last 3 WDC's but he's only really dominated 2011.

In 2010 he came from behind to win in the final race & last year he only really dominated a few races towards the end but the championship still went down to the final race.

Surprising that it was only 2nd time as Rocky has been on the podium when Vettel wins.
