I like Vettel as a guy. For me, in a strange way since I don’t know either personally, the fact that he gets on with Kimi Raikkonen speaks volumes of him as a person being honest and genuine.
As an F1 driver, he comes across as having an overgrown sense of entitlement. But then, he has no business-manager so perhaps he always wear those two hats at the same time. And regardless, you don’t get to be world champion without being demanding. I don’t think he’s any different to other drivers there.
What I dislike about him, is his team. Billionaire buys a team, gets his buddy to run things and installs a puppet to do the talking. Billionaire is entirely entitled to do as he pleases with his money, and if he can attract one of the eminent designers to make the car for him, more power to him. But the “buddy behind the scenes-with puppet” setup annoys me, perhaps more than is reasonable. Like when the puppet gets quoted saying “accountants shouldn’t run F1″ when even the biggest spenders of the field Ferrari have agreed to the terms laid out. So clearly the actual spending side of things isn’t the problem.
Also, they have been caught cheating with a manually adjustable suspension design. I still don’t know why the FIA did nothing in response to that.
