I know what you mean – but I think it will be similar to Button-Hamilton – in that he will outperform people’s expectations. I know a lot of people don’t rate Vettel and feel that Alonso will thrash him – but I don’t think so.
I use to think that, but I’ve changed my mind about that now. Vettel is a very good driver, among the best, but whether he can/will beat Alonso is debatable.
F1F is a genuine website towards Sebastian, and he usually gets the credit he deserves. I wouldn’t recommend you or any other Vettel fan to try the Autosport blog. Horrible forum, totally one-sided with all the Mclaren fans and both Seb and Fred are often trashed there.
As for whatever reason, I just don’t feel Hamilton will be a part of this rivalry. His career has taken a strange path; classic drivers such as Schumacher, Vettel or Alonso start their career in a mediocre/moderate team, then move up to an upper midfield team, win their first race, and then win 2 consecutive championships at a young age. Hamilton, although a great driver who will probably win another championship, will for whatever reason be remembered as the Mansell of this era. That’s just what I think.
