They were not booing at Vettel. Booing was due to green peace protesters protesting against Shell and they have been trying several stunts to get attention pre-during-post race. Don't think any crowd is so anti-Vettel or anti-any-driver to boo them on the podium.

I don't think Alonso or Hamilton got the same levels of booíng as Vettel (or so I thought).

And here's a video, uploaded by Greenpeace.

Why fans booed the Belgian GP podium ceremony

I loved that. Got to hand it to them for making a fool of the GP organizers. Plus I am one of those who does support Greenpeace.
