Here we go again…
Has Webber ever won a race when he didn’t start first and second? Does anyone suggest he can’t overtake?
What about when Alonso couldn’t get passed Petrov despite a championship being on the line? Does anyone suggest he can’t overtake?
He has made overtaking moves in pretty much every race this season. As soon as he’s stuck behind a car for than about two laps people say he can’t overtake again.
If you go back to Silverstone 2011. He overtook, Massa, Schumacher, Hulkenberg, Petrov and then as soon as he couldn’t get passed Sutil the ‘Vettel can’t overtake’ phrase was back.
These things always happen, peoples opinions change race to race. Look at Hamilton, his aggression won him the race (passing Webber and Alonso) everyone will be saying what an amazing and hard racer he is. But when it goes wrong (like in Monaco) he’s an idiot and races dangerously.
Vettel is certainly not a great overtaker but to say he can’t do it and is a bad driver after one example is ridiculous.
