The dust settles down and time for sanity to reappear - it seems.

Belated Easter wishes you !!!
Looks like Vettel Vs. Webber debate has come to an end, at least on tbhp. All I can add to it is that, I can't wait to see Chinese GP. After all we might get to see Webber pull a Senna on Vettel, he could be excused because he is no good at starts anyways!!
On a serious note, to all those who write off Mark as no match to Vettel, (I have always wondered this) how much of influence does the difference in their body mass has on race speed(say 12kilos)

Sharing with you all some of the race pictures and video.

Cheers,

I don't think it makes a huge difference. M.Schumacher was 6 foot plus and built like a bull but still could outperform others.

Webber is simply not as consistent as Vettel race to race as well as through the race. He qualifies poorly, makes terrible starts and usually comes into rythm late into each race. Every once in a while he matches up to Vettel.

Schumacher was 1.74 meters tall when he retired and was built more like a lithe fox than a bull. Unless he has grown post retirement..

Surprised about the height. My guess was from eyeballing and comparison to others standing next to him.

Build is relative. Compared to American Football & Sumo wrestlers, he's built like a mouse
