Yep, what Helen Said!

SV has been the most consistent performer since the height of Schuey's powers. Fair play to him and Red Bull!

No one mentioned this on the BEEB but isn't what Vettel appeared to do at the start of this race a little like what Senna did to Prost at Suzuka 21 years ago?

If Vettel had collided with Button, and they had both been wiped out, then SV would have been crowned Champion at the very start of the race and he would not have had to spend the next 2 hours trying to ensure that he was awarded the 1 point he needed for the crown.

Vettel had nothing to lose by taking out JB. Which in my eyes puts him up there with Mansell, Senna and Shumacher as a great World Champion, as they all had that same 'Killer Instinct'.

Great drive JB but Vettel is a very worthy Champion. :ymapplause:

I just think their mirrors are too small, Lewis said his were (couldn't see anything in them), Seb was looking right right into his morror, yet some how missed JB (literally).

With the exception of "what a horrible noise" the mirrors were one of the few things she noticed when we saw the Lotus at Duxford :))

My mum could probably do a better job =)) =))
