I just noticed how impressive Vettel's end of season stint was.
In a world without strategies, mechanical failures or weather lotteries, he would have had the pole and led every lap of the four last races (Japan, Korea, Brazil and Abu Dhabi).
He only lost the pole to Hulkemberg in Korea (he was back in the lead by the first corner), he only lost a race (again Korea) to an engine blow-up and he only lost the lead to people in different pit stop strategies (Button twice, Japan and Abu Dhabi and Webber for 1 lap in Japan) who never looked to be really ahead.
Windmills are cool, elegant and magnificent. TANSTAAFL!
