Webber, being third in the WCs for 3 out of the last 4 years, needed those 14 points badly at this stage in the season. For vettel to deny him against team order makes him a greedy prick. For the team to support vettel over Webber makes them complicit.

I see it as pay back for Brazil last year and we all move on watching Vettel go for #4

Vettel...........3 WDC's
Webber........0 WDC's
Pretty much a no-brainer.
Unless of course, one has no brain.

Dude, what ever it is your smoking, pass it this way! No one would want the 3 time reigning champ?!?

I assume you mean Alonso, but yes. Do you honestly believe the world is only 2000 years old? ;)

Sue me, misspelled his name. Doesn't trip off the tongue as easily as Kubica. Why can't all names be as easy as we Poles???

Sorry, Al*o*nso has had tremendous and exciting drives (barring this last) in cars that should not have been that competitive.

I'd take him and Raikkonen on my team. C'mon, that would be an interesting dynamic!

Technically, a rabbi would contest the world is a bit older than 2000 years...

Alonso is certainly very talented, but how are you so sure his car was so much worse than Vettel's? Because of team mate performance? I think Webber is better than Massa, and even then it's not very exact? Alonso and Kimi would certainly be interesting, at least while it lasted!? I think Kimi would probably kill him before too long!?

I think the looks on the faces of ferrari team members last year in testing and at the beginning of the season spoke enough to the comparative speed of the car, especially at their surprise at doing so well early on.

Aw, c'mon. I know you're a Vettel fanboy, that's cool, we all have our favorites. But this is pretty far off the beam, old chap.

(Speaking of fanboys.... Actually, when it comes to drivers, I don't really like that many. Like, as in support, that is. Top of my list is Massa. He's not the quickest, but I like and support the lad. It's not easy, you know. )

Yes, you and Waxy have listed some strong evidence of the Red Bull cars dominance?!?

For the past 3 years till present they have won pole position for more than half of all race weekends, the constructor's championship and the drivers championship. They have by definition dominated F1 for the past 3 years. So far they look to be in the same championship winning form this year. Hopefully someone else catches up.

Not to mention Vettel's drive from last place on the grid TWICE throughout one race and still finished 2nd in Dhabi last year.

I am not by any means a Vettel fan but the kid can drive. For a while I didn't think he was good at battling for position but last year he proved he can make a pass if he needs to.
