Does anyone really think , given equal cars to Hamilton and Alonso that Vettel would have won 4 back to back?
Mark Webber has the same car as Vettel, yet has consistently been way behind Vettel in the world championship standings. If the Red Bull is as far ahead of the competition as some might suggest, then why is Webber only 5th in the current standings? Considering he's a decent racing driver. Alonso, Hamilton and Raikkonnen are in 'inferior' cars, yet are above Webber. To say it's al down to the car is disingenuous. If that were the case, then surely Webber would have been the 2nd best driver over the last 4 years?
Vettel is an exceptionally talented driver who has the ability to get the very best out of his car (remember his win in a Torro Rosso? How many other drivers could have managed that?), in practice, qualifying and the race. His desire to win everything, even fastest lap, marks him out as a true great.
Boring? People have been saying that about F1 for as long as I can remember (early 80s onwards).
