He maximized points when the car was off pace and then maximized points when the car was fast. During that time he also drove from the back of the pack in two different races at high pressure moments to get vital points.
    not saying Vettel isn't a good driver. just saying he isn't "proven". how do one know Redbull isn't capable of going 2 seconds faster ? (yes, exaggerating here). there isn't anyone to compare to. Alonso drove against Hamilton as teammate (and others), both held their own. Hamilton is teammate with Button, a WDC, and has proven better.... I can go on and on...

    Webber has never done well (cue..Tyler), so he isn't a yardstick I would measure against Vettel.
    Sam Posey did a short about Webber....He always had bad luck with teams, he was never in a good car, not able to show his talent....then he was in RB, and has been proven not up to task against top drivers....if it weren't for Vettel, RB probably would not of won any WDC title....(yes I am contradicting myself here)
