    I've never liked Vettel the cunt, but this weekend has just solidified the fact. Lowlife little shit. 'lets both turn our cars down to engine management mode, you go first'.

    ...and a F1 driver who is quite happy to win unethically - there's another big surprise...

    Ethics? In competitive sports?

    Unethically?

    Teams telling sportsmen not to try to win because of money, that's unethical.

    I thought yesterday was a pretty good race, the tyre situation is a bit of a farce with the softs only lasting 5laps, but it effects everyone the same way and even jenson 'no tyre damage' button struggled with his stint on them.
    I'm pleased Vettel didn't win for a change, and even though I'm not a huge fan of Alonso, he drove well and deserved it.
    Bit gutted for Luis as I had high hopes that he could carry his qualifying pace into the race but it wasn't to be.
    Kimi excellent as usual.

    I rate him, Kimi and Luis as the 3 best drivers currently in it. But I agree, he's an awesome driver, can't stand the fucker tho.

    i think you have to add vettel to make it the best 4.

    also in the right conditions with the right car Jenson is up there but nowhere near being up there if its not the right conditions, car etc.

    hamilton who i dont like may be the out and out quickest driver.

    I'm the same, don't like Hamilton at all but talent wise I suspect he may be the most natural racer in F1.

    He's arguably in the wrong era though, as teams don't really want racers who go all out for the win, but consistent drivers instead.

    hamilton would have beend good throughout the schumacher era then when the races where essentially three sprints

    Vettel is quick, but I've not included him as I don't think if he and the other 3 were racing in identical cars, he'd be anywhere near them.
    Hamilton, Alonso and Kimi have all won or been there abouts in absolute bangers. Vettel has won and been there abouts in by far the best car, that's not his fault obviously, but for me, he's not done it in a banger.

    i dont like Vettel much but you dont win three tittles without being very very good.  Yes its been the best car but often the best driver ends up in the best car.

    I don't think there's many drivers in F1 (apart from maybe Grosjean) that couldn't win back to back titles in that redbull ;)

    Webber is not a bad driver at all...Vettel is better. But the gap is made to look bigger than it would be if they went in a fair fight.

    I think Rosberg is under rated. I won't be surprised at all to see him match Hamilton on pure speed, but race craft is a whole different thing....i don't think he has that bit.

    Hulkenberg is a future champ.

    The tyres are an utter piss take this season, it's ruining it. But, to be fair to Pirelli, they're only doing what they've been told to do by bernie - make the tyres shit as otherwise there'll be no overtaking in F1.

    Is it worth catching a race live? Thinking about watching the Singapore race live.
