I lost a lot of respect for Vettel after that crap he pulled on Weber this year.  I’m not a great fan of team orders, but to manipulate team orders so as to take a win from a teammate?  That was really low.  In my mind he became just another prima donna,  egotistical athlete no better than those NBA jerks who scream and pound their chests when they score.

Have to disagree that Vettel only wins because of the car.  While having a Newey-designed car certainly is a significant advantage, let’s not forget that he won the Italian GP in a Toro Rosso.  Major, Schuey-Senna level talent.  And a jerk.
