I wouldn't say it will define him, it could define him. If he wins the title again it will cement him as one of the very greats like you say. Only Schumacher and Fangio have won three in a row.

If he has a bad season (unlikely IMO) or even 'just' a good one where he doesn't win the title (like 2009) he still has plenty of time to win more titles and cement that status in the future.

Of course, he's still only 24. But a bad season would cause questions and it can rumble on. I don't think he'll lose his title though, far from it.

Very strange! In the morning it looked empty! Maybe someone was working on it and it just seemed empty!? :confused:

Vettel's contract at Red Bull ends in 2014. I hope that he switches to Ferrari then to fight against Alonso in the same team. I believe that Vettel is already nearly as good as Alonso, with a bit more experience he surely can beat him. That would make Vettel one of the best drivers in F1 history in my opinion.

they operate on a budget that amounts to roughly £1.50

Oh S*** :huh: they have lost 24.6 % of their budget :blink:

http://www.f1zone.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6513&p=277286&hilit=lidl#p277286
Meanwhile, Peter Sauber continues to operate a fantastic little team with an annual budget of £1.99
:lol:
Though, it is amazing how well they cope with a small budget. :) Somewhere there was that their 2011 budget was $80m, which is only 1/3 of BMW's massive budget in 2009.

Well noticed :lol:

Yeah, they operate well considering their budget. Their best year in my opinion was 2001 when they were 4th - that was pretty astonishing. Also, Sauber has a knack of nurturing young talents as well.

Also, I've added a donate button to my articles, for those of you who are kind enough to help me with potential expenses this year.
