    @UK
    Sorry for the disappointment, but I think I have posted this news piece about 2 years back when Vettel wins his first GP for RedBull in China. Amazing is not it, well the reason is simple this is an old news piece or rather a combination of different news pieces of that time. Ascanelli and Berger have said these things previously and may be they have said it again but their opinion is well known.

    As for the context, even if you hate the comparision you have to agreed to a simple fact and that is Senna and Michal have raced in a total different era then Vettel is racing in. Even Senna and Michal have not raced in the same era let alone compare them with the current era. Yes, Michal is racing nowadays and he has shown some of his instincts which he was reknowned for back in his first era but he is still learning new F1 too.

    Just look at the difference between rules for Senna's and Michal's and nowadays era. In Senna's and Michal's era, especially the 80's and 90's don't have the parc ferme rule, teams are allowed to run different setups for qualy and race back in those days while nowadays teams have to find an optimum setup which would give them best possible advantage in both sessions.

    Engines, gearboxes have to last 3 to 4 races respectively nowadays while back in those days 2 engines can be used for qualy and race and 1 engine cannot needed for more then 1 race. The kind of penalties for different incidents were not present at that time like they are present nowadays.

    The attrition rate was high while the reliability was low in that era, nowadays it is vice versa, as you have already read that Chinese GP becomes the best GP in terms of No. of Finishers 23 out of 24 have finished the race the most ever finishers in the history of F1. Just to understand how high the attrition rate was and how low the reliability was, Senna have retired from pole 24 times out of his 65 poles.

    Vettel is the only frontline driver from the current grid who has suffered more reliability issues then any other driver in last 2 years. In RB5 he has 3 engines failures out of which 2 happens at the European GP on Valenica Street circuit, and just to cope with that he has to cut his running in practices and even in qualifying sessions. In RB6 he has lost 2 race wins because of engine and brakes issue, while lost 3 places in Bahrain after a spark plug failure, have to nurse his car to podium in Spain after brake issue raised again and even ignoring the call by team to retire from the race on safety ground. When the time comes to show maturity he has done that too from Monza to Abu Dhabi he was consistent scoring 3 wins a second, a fourth and retired from SouthKorean GP not his fault.

    Yes, Vettel is driving cars design by Adrian Newey but do you think it is his fault that Adrian Newey is designing so good cars. I think you have forgot that when Vettel joined RedBull most people thinks it was a wrong choice as STR have outpaced RedBull a season earlier and most points for them were scored by Vettel. But then RB5 shows up and people start talking about how lucky Vettel is to drive that. Even Adrian Newey says that Vettel's style of driving is most suitable for the cars that I designed.

    Lastly, Vettel has not said a word that he is in Senna's or Michal's league or that he is the best driver of the current F1 grid, some other people have said that so why criticise Vettel for that.

    Chain reactions
    The start of a grand prix is a fraught time for even the best drivers, and a mass of cars piling into the early corners can too often cause chaos. We look at ten first-lap pile-ups

    Italian Grand Prix, 1978
    In terms of the number of cars involved, the 11-vehicle shunt at Monza holds the record and it also resulted in the tragic death of Ronnie Peterson. Much of the blame was levelled at the starter who turned on the red lights before the grid had finished lining up, and then several mid-field cars started before those at the front. The net result was a catastrophic funnelling of cars into the chicane - James Hunt was forced to swerve to avoid Riccardo Patrese and clipped Peterson who careered into the barriers. Eight other cars piled into the melee, and for a time medical efforts centred on Vittorio Brambilla, who had been hit on the head by a loose wheel and was unconscious. Peterson had been pulled free of his Lotus by other drivers and lay on the track with serious, but apparently not life-threatening, injuries but it was an age before he was treated. Eventually both drivers were taken to hospital - Brambilla was soon discharged but following surgery, Peterson developed complications and died the following day of an embolism.

    Belgian Grand Prix, 1998
    Not one but two first-lap crashes in the wet at Spa. The first came when David Coulthard lost control of his McLaren, turned 90° and wiped out a number of other cars, causing the race to be stopped. At the restart four drivers were absent - three because their teams had run out of cars, one, Rubens Barrichello, was injured. When they tried for a second time there was more trouble as championship leader Mika Hakkinen spun at the first corner and took out Johnny Herbert, and then Coulthard collided with Alex Wurz, bringing the safety car into action. Coulthard's forgettable day was not finished even then - as Michael Schumacher, leading by a long distance, tried to lap him, Coulthard mucked up his line and took Schumacher out. A livid Schumacher stormed into the McLaren garage and yelled "eere you trying to f***ing kill me?" at Coulthard, and the pair had to be separated by mechanics.

    Monaco Grand Prix, 1950
    Proof that first-lap crashes are nothing new came in what was the second Formula One championship race. Nino Farina, in second place, skidded on the part of the road soaked by the sea at Tabac Corner after a manic start. In the resulting melee, eight others were put out and by the end of the second lap only nine of the 19 starters remained and the tracked was soaked in spilt fuel. Only Juan Manuel Fangio and Luigi Villoresi escaped the chaos, but as Fangio came round again he became aware of yellow flags waving. "The spectators … were not looking at me leading the race but the other way," he said, and instinctively raised his hand to warn drivers behind him of the danger. Arriving on the scene, Fangio found the track blocked and fuel spilling everywhere, along with marshals desperately trying to clear the area. He leant out and gently nudged one of the crashed cars out of the way and continued. Villoresi and Alberto Ascari followed but none came close to catching Fangio who finished a lap ahead of Ascari.

    British Grand Prix, 1973
    A multi-car pile-up which could have been far more serious had it not been for the quick thinking of Jackie Stewart. The race started with a two-car accident on the grid when Jackie Oliver rear-ended Niki Lauda, and developed into a multi-car pile-up after one lap, causing it to be stopped. Rookie Jody Scheckter was held to blame after he ran too wide, clipped the grass and spun across the track and into the pit wall. The pack was left with nowhere to go and many cars were caught up in the resulting melee. The leaders were oblivious, other than by yellow flags, of the extent of what had happened until they sped round a lap later to be confronted with a wall of debris. Stewart did superbly to brake in time, holding up his hand to warn those behind him to do likewise. "His lightning appreciation of the situation undoubtedly saved lives," noted Eric Dymock in the Guardian. Most drivers escaped unharmed, but it took 40 minutes to cut Andrea de Adamich out of his Brabham, and he never raced again. Most affected were the Surtees team, already suffering a poor season, which lost all three of its cars. By the time the race restarted 100 minutes later, nine of the original starters were missing.

    British Grand Prix, 1976
    Three years later and another shambolic start to a British Grand Prix triggered a near riot. A huge crowd flocked to Brand Hatch to see James Hunt, but when he was caught up in a first-corner crash which started when Clay Regazzoni hit Ferrari team-mate Niki Lauda, his day seemed to be over. As debris from at least half-a-dozen cars was cleared, several teams prepared spare cars for drivers whose own ones were undriveable. But stewards ruled replacement cars could not be used unless drivers had completed the first lap, ruling out Hunt and others. Faced with an increasingly angry crowd, they backed down, Hunt raced and went on to win. His joy did not last as Ferrari appealed, and more than two months later he was disqualified and Lauda declared the winner.

    German Grand Prix, 2001
    Proof even the greats have off days came at Hockenheim when world champion Michael Schumacher struggled with his gear selection off the line, and Luciano Burti was unable to avoid slamming into the crawling Ferrari. "Burti's Prost twisted in the air before landing upside down between the Orange Arrows of Bernoldi and Jos Verstappen," the Daily Mirror reported. "The impact thrust Schumacher 's Ferrari at least an extra 200 metres down the track and left Burti shedding wheels and debris in all directions." A re-start was ordered but Schumacher did not enjoy the reprieve as his replacement Ferrari expired, leaving him to watch the remainder of the race from the cool shelter of trackside trees. The home crowd still had a Schumacher victory to cheer, Ralf enjoying one of his six career wins.

    British Grand Prix, 1986
    Not so much a pile-up as a roadblock as damaged cars littered the track after a mechanical failure heading into the first bend caused Thierry Boutsen's Arrows to spear across the track and bounce back off the barriers, with many of those behind unable to avoid the debris. Jacques Laffite's day started with him being feted for equalling the most number of grand prix starts but ended with him in hospital with two broken legs: career-ending injuries. Far luckier was Nigel Mansell who suffered driveshaft failure in the opening seconds and who had radioed his pits to say his race was over. The re-start allowed him to jump into the reserve car, in which he went on to win, a feat made all the more remarkable as in their haste to get the Williams ready, the pit crew had forgotten to put a water bottle on board.

    Canadian Grand Prix, 1980
    There was no giving way when Alan Jones and Nelson Piquet stormed from the front row into the second corner at the cramped Ile Notre Dame circuit. The pair touched wheels and Piquet slammed into a wall, "triggering a chain reaction of skidding, bumping cars behind him" reported the Times. Bernie Ecclestone, at the time Piquet's manager, wailed: "Jones leaned on Nelson and pushed him into the wall." Six drivers jumped into reserve cars, while others had to surrender theirs to senior drivers in their team. At the re-start Jones beat Piquet off the line only for Piquet to battle back into the lead soon after. He seemed set for victory when his engine died, and although Didier Pironi crossed the line first, he was disqualified for jumping the start and Jones awarded the win, and with it the world championship.

    Argentina Grand Prix, 1979
    Eight cars were involved in a crash as the field headed into the esses on the first lap when John Watson and Jody Scheckter touched wheels and took several others with them in the resulting accident. Fortunately, nobody was injured, and a day which started in chaos ended in farce when Juan Manuel Fangio waved the chequered flag a lap too soon, mistaking the Lotus of Ronnie Peterson, in fifth, with that of race leader and winner Mario Andretti.

    French Grand Prix, 1989
    One of the more spectacular crashes came at Paul Ricard, with Mauricio Gugelmin's March flying through the air after colliding with Thierry Boutsen's Williams and landing on Nigel Mansell's Ferrari. Again, several reserve cars were called into action, and although Mansell suffered neck and head injuries, he knuckled down, took over team-mate Gerhard Berger's car, started from the pit lane and finished second.

    @Paula's secret Malaysian Prince aka Steve to us

    I remember reading that bit of news before too. I think Berger's opinion is something that has been added to it and both put together or maybe it`s something Georgio Ascanelli has repeated lately.

    Anyway, what i said about Vettel is my opinion only. He is actually quite a likable person it seems ONLY minus the finger thing. Like most drivers he throws hissy fits. The only reason why we don`t know so much about it or get to read is because it has not happened between him and that wonder boy(LOL) of British racing. If there is an altercation between those two, everything will change.

    It is in no way Vettel`s fault that Ascanelli is talking out of his a$$ But, whether you agree or you don`t, and i am pretty sure you don`t, firstly there was the enormous support for him from Red Bull. They literally threw away the title because they wanted him to win it and if he could not, they did not care whether Webber won it. That is how it was perceived by most. Now the Ascanelli and Berger stuff. Vettel will invariably be at the receiving end of things because of all that.

    My point was quite simple. 1) In what ever era he drove with Senna or Schumacher, he, Vettel, would not even come close to those two, never.

    I guess the simple question to be asked in a poll should be. Is Vettel the best driver in F1? Is he the 2nd best driver in F1? Is he the 3rd best driver in F1? ( provided Kubica is around ) Whether he is the 4th best driver in F1?

    For me it is simple, he is not in the top three. If he is not in the top three, but he is in Senna`s league and has more natural talent than Schumacher, then what to make of those who are well and truly ahead of him on the current grid. Where does one put Alonso, Hamilton and Kubica then? All three head and shoulders above Vettel. They are all Fangio?

    I am not a fan of comparing drivers from different generations but

    Just look at the difference between rules for Senna's and Michal's and nowadays era. In Senna's and Michal's era, especially the 80's and 90's don't have the parc ferme rule, teams are allowed to run different setups for qualy and race back in those days while nowadays teams have to find an optimum setup which would give them best possible advantage in both sessions.
    And? If he drove along side them in that era or they drove in current times, they would be miles ahead of him.

    Heck, in the same car, Alonso, Hamilton and Kubica would give him a whipping, considering how hard it was for him to keep up with Webber at times last year, who at best is an average driver. Vettel looks to have improved this year. His defense against Hamilton, who clearly had fresher tires and hence was much much faster, was quite impressive.

    Vettel is the only frontline driver from the current grid who has suffered more reliability issues then any other driver in last 2 years. In RB5 he has 3 engines failures out of which 2 happens at the European GP on Valenica Street circuit, and just to cope with that he has to cut his running in practices and even in qualifying sessions. In RB6 he has lost 2 race wins because of engine and brakes issue, while lost 3 places in Bahrain after a spark plug failure, have to nurse his car to podium in Spain after brake issue raised again and even ignoring the call by team to retire from the race on safety ground. When the time comes to show maturity he has done that too from Monza to Abu Dhabi he was consistent scoring 3 wins a second, a fourth and retired from SouthKorean GP not his fault.
    Bro, as the saying goes, that comes with the territory. That is the flip side to driving an Adrian Newey designed car. It will be way ahead of others, very fast but most of the times quite fragile. You drive his car and are a half a$$ed driver, his car does not break down during a race, you are pretty likely to win the race. It`s that simple. Everything is so tightly packaged in a Newey designed car that there is always a chance of it breaking down. Look at their KERS problems this year. It`s only because of how he has designed the car that they can`t really use the conventional system, and they are not doing too badly without it are they? Just the superiority of the car

    If he wins, then it is something that is expected. It is not like Alonso winning from him in Singapore or Hamilton beating him in a race, both driving cars that were and are clearly inferior to Red Bull.

    Yes, Vettel is driving cars design by Adrian Newey but do you think it is his fault that Adrian Newey is designing so good cars. I think you have forgot that when Vettel joined RedBull most people thinks it was a wrong choice as STR have outpaced RedBull a season earlier and most points for them were scored by Vettel. But then RB5 shows up and people start talking about how lucky Vettel is to drive that. Even Adrian Newey says that Vettel's style of driving is most suitable for the cars that I designed.
    Never said anything about it being Vettel`s fault but he sure is lucky to drive cars designed by Adrian Newey, and Adrian Newey has not designed a dog of a car which he is capable of doing from time to time.

    I for one do not know who thought it was a mistake to move from STR. Some people thought it was too early for him to move because of his lack of experience but other then that-there was nothing. STR was a team that was getting the old designs etc from Red Bull, a junior Red Bull team. It`s like someone suggesting that if Ferrari or Mclaren ran a B team, it would be a mistake for a driver to leave that team and go to the main team or leaving a private team say like Sauber or Force India and go to a works team.

    As for Vettel`s style, i don`t know. What style is required to drive a car which can be 1.5 seconds a lap quicker in qualifying than any other car out there? Maybe just enough talent to keep the car on track and not fall off it? Is Red Bull a difficult car to drive that it needs a special style?

    Lastly, Vettel has not said a word that he is in Senna's or Michal's league or that he is the best driver of the current F1 grid, some other people have said that so why criticise Vettel for that.
    Not criticizing Vettel for that bro. I feel he is a much improved driver this year and he comes across as quite a humble guy not a cocky remote controlled robot, brought up from a young age to be media savvy etc like noticing that the cameras were on so put on a fake smile and pat Kimi Raikkonen on the back, lol

    And thanks for putting up the numbers about different tire manufacturers. Really appreciate it<label for="rb_iconid_14">-Formula 1 - Season 2011 - icon14</label>

    My drug dealer little brother, you must have run out of good stuff again and quite possibly making the trip to take some good quality stuff from here for the chosen customers. I like that, at least you provide them with high quality stuff unlike what Paula has been sniffing these days.

    Seems you and i are not destined to meet. Last year it was around Eid time that you came here and i was`t around. This time you are coming way earlier, and I am running away from load shedding and the heat on thursday morning, got my ticket yesterday, if you had posted this info a day before even, i would have moved my travel date by a few days. Since i am staying in two places before reaching my destination, i have hotel rooms etc booked now

    How long are you coming here for and any chance you will be here for any of the eids? I won`t be back for small eid but i should be back by big eid.

    I agree with your point that Ascanelli should not says such things as it will only increase pressure on Vettel, especially when he is been questioned by media and slight misjudgement can create an exploding situation and you know what I mean.

    But can you believe that there is a topic on Autosport Forum asking is Vettel in Alonso and Hamilton's league or not. And the poll is showing almost a result of 50/50 either way. For me Alonso is the best driver of the current F1 grid, Hamilton and Vettel are contesting for 2nd, Kubica's accident has avoid us from seeing what he could do in the R31 and in previous seasons he is quite unlucky especially in 2008 when at a certain time he was leading the championship and then the team decided to stop development and lost a big oppurtunity.

    As for the tyre manufacturers data, do you have any idea from where I have got that, because I am sure you have used StatsF1.com for the original data.

    @BlackEye117

    Load shedding has become crazy in the last week. We spent most of Jan-Feb and March with little or no load shedding. Now it goes for 2-3 hours at a stretch, comes back for an hour maybe two and can go again for an hour, sometime two three again. So yes, it is really really bad these days.

    The weather has changed too all of a sudden. About a week or so back it was raining here almost daily for three four days and it had rained for a few days a week before. I wasn`t even using a fan until 8th-9th April. Now i run the AC

    I really hope we can meet next time you are here. Good luck with your trip, though you might miss F1 and Moto GP because power does go around that time, at least where i live but your trip will be worth it if you can take back some high quality stuff with you Give some to Steve and Paula for free, especially Paula. She is using some really low grade stuff these days.

    Ascanelli, as far as i recall did not spend a lot of time close to Senna. He was his racing engineer at one point in time, how long that went on i don`t remember now but he wasn`t so high in the chain at Mclaren.

    He might be qualified at making statements but it doesn't seem very objective. He is kinda employed in a way by Red Bull even now, no?

    Vettel is quite an approachable guy. When people talk about doing things to improve the show, make it more of a spectacle, i always think one of the things to do is make the drivers more approachable for fans. Vettel is by far the most humble and approachable of the world champions on the grid which can only be good for the sport, but making silly comparisons with other champions is only going to make people even more critical of him.

    The poll you are talking about is quite surprising to me at least.

    Where did you get the stats from? I have no clue. Let me give it one try, got it through google?

    Nope, rather good old Wikipedia, wikipedia's F1 history and related topics are quite informative, you could find any thing and almost any sort of stats on those pages. Certainly those who have compiled them have done an amazing job.

    I don't know where @UK is going this time but I have a pretty good hunch that he is invited in the royal wedding, because it is no coincidence that he will arrive in UK on the very day of wedding.

    @UK
    You should have told us about the invitation and not these fake reasons of going out because of loadshedding.

    @BlackEye117

    Little bro, funny-that since i wrote that bit about load shedding yesterday things here have improved a little bit and it`s been more of the normal load shedding, like going for an hour every 4 hours. I dont know if it`s a temporary phase or maybe they are genuinely scared now that they know you are coming over

    I am going to dubai from here and staying there for a couple of days. Then going to denmark from there for a few days. Have an old friend there, ahem, just catching up on old times and from there i`ll go to scotland.

    I really hope we get to meet the next time you are here.

    The reason why i asked you to give some good quality stuff to Paula is for a reason. Paula is using cheap stuff and getting messed up in the head big time, got knocked up and thinks she was once married to a malaysian prince

    LOL! na bro, i`ll have to skip the wedding I won`t be there in time, in-fact i will be in dubai at the time when that great event happens all the better because it would be crazy. I am assuming its at the end of this month, unless i have the dates mixed up. I didn`t look at the invite carefully

    I thought you and Paula would be going. Not that Paula should be taken to places like that unless you want to be embarrassed

    @UK
    Nope, rather good old Wikipedia, wikipedia's F1 history and related topics are quite informative, you could find any thing and almost any sort of stats on those pages. Certainly those who have compiled them have done an amazing job.
    You are not a genius for no reason

    Michelin and Dunlop look the most impressive, given they have never been sole suppliers.

    Yes, Michelin and Dunlop are the best but Pirelli and Firestone should also considered as good as this is Pirelli's first sole supplier stint while Firestone's 11 sole supplier race wins are all Indy 500 when Indy500 was part of F1 from 1950 to 1960. Otherwise they also have competition throughout their stints. GoodYear also has an excellent success rate with nearly 70% race wins comes when they have competition and that makes Bridgestone the worst tyre manufacturer of F1 history with only 59 wins when they have competition. Also I never knows that between Goodyear leaving at the end of 98' and Michelin's arrival in 2001, Bridgestone was the sole tyre supplier.

    @Steve, Eddie & Paula

    See you guys on the other side.

    ummm it seems you are going to enjoy f1 bbc there.... iney ...
    I very much will No more Spanish, German whatever commentators for me.

    GoodYear also has an excellent success rate with nearly 70% race wins comes when they have competition and that makes Bridgestone the worst tyre manufacturer of F1 history with only 59 wins when they have competition. Also I never knows that between Goodyear leaving at the end of 98' and Michelin's arrival in 2001, Bridgestone was the sole tyre supplier.
    Goodyear was great. Bridgstone has been very conservative which might explain their lack of success and at one point became very unprofessional, which resulted in the big teams switching to Michelin. Firestone is Bridgestone, but their success came before Bridgestone took over Firestone.
