Great little read. Added *** all, but a nice reminder of history none
the less. That said, I didn't quite realise how divided the actual team
was though.

Said it before, say it again: Hamilton and Vettel are very much alike,
virtually interchangeable. And the main differences are their teams.

You know, if one tots it up, I bet Hamilton is the worse behaved out of
the pair.

I think Seb's reputation for skulduggery is much overdone. He has
really one charge on his rap sheet - and it's a very recent one.

Ham? Trying to deceive the stewards about a pass behind the safety
car, and the shenanigans in Hungary.

Fred tried to blackmail his own team, was a willing and active
participant in spygate.

None of them are a Senna or a Schumacher who have deliberately tried
to take a rival out.

Disobeying team orders goes back to the 50s at least when one of the
Ferrari drivers declined the "offer" of handing his car over to
Fangio. Most sport's reputation for being gentlemanly is overdone.

I don't mind drivers being ruthless and competitive and really wanting
to win, as long as it stays within the bounds of the regulations
(Schumacher's ramming of Villeneuve did not). Win at all legal costs
is fine with me. Vettel didn't cheat in terms of the rules by which
the race is run. However, and it's the point of that article, I think,
his actions could be massively damaging for the team. Which is the
team's problem and I bet the opposition are***ing their lips.

Split a team into 2 and that's what I'd expect to happen.  You can be
sure the same division is there at RB and that was before the last race.

Dunno.  He probably thought Fred wasn't any faster than he was and had
no intention of becoming the *** boy of the team until Fred moved
on.  We all saw how DC was treated at McLaren.

I can make a bet too, 200 is more then 10.

He's got more on his rap sheet, that's for sure. We haven't seen
Vettel trying to deceive the stewards.

Not nearly as bad as another driver on the grid though. Afterall he
hasn't been involved in industrial espionage.

True.

And no-one wants to hear about Hamilton's spat with Alonso either.

I know which gets brought up most...normally with more conjecture
masquerading as fact than anything of substance.

Move along...nothing to see here!

Oh my dear boy. You can't bring this up every week and then claim it is
others who can't get over it when they are taking the***without
looking just a bit like a plonker.

Nice try though.

Six years and counting...

You know, there are people who have found, loved had a family grown
tired of each other and moved on to new lives in the time you have
devoted to defending the indefensible and nursing a long mended wound.

Very well put - and nice to know that you *do* have a sentimental side,
