Heat of the moment thing. Everyone had them, black or hispanic
While Vettel's comments were not very realistic, some of the claims made here aren't either. Why does it seem impossible for some people to make argument without making stuff up.

How does a driver who had his championship fights affected by not-his-fault-retirements more than any other driver "known far more success than failure"? The fact he kept his head cool in late 2010 despite everything that had and kept going wrong, is admirable if anything.

I hope you realize that you just made that up right? There were 8 safety cars in 2011, 2 of which MAY have gained him a total of 9 points, yet 5 safety cars that completely diminished his lead
of which one that cost him 7 points.2011:
- There were 2 safety cars in Monaco. Arguably, though only arguably consider all three front-runners were on worn-out tyres, the second safety car -or actually the red flag- may have helped Vettel, but the first one cut his lead in the first place. Overall no safety car advantage in that race.
- In Canada, it hurt Vettel that the Safety car kept cutting his lead. Even one less safety car would have meant Button would not have been on his tail in the final laps.
- In Belgium, the safety car did not benefit nor damage Vettel.
- In Italy, a safety car in lap 1. The entire field was still together anyway, so it didn't benefit anyone.
- In Singapore, again a safety car that removed Vettel's lead.
- In Japan, Hamilton was damaged by the safety car, but whether he would have finished in front of Vettel is uncertain.
- In Korea, again a safety car that removed Vettel's lead.
The safety car in Australia 2012 only seems to have favored Vettel if you weren't following Live Timing. Vettel was putting in some super fast laps to jump Hamilton, and saw the number of laps he had to pull that off reduced by the safety car. Not being unlucky is different than being lucky.
