Sure... Webber is keeping Vettel honest but from what I can see, Vettel thrives under pressure and the win in Shanghai says it all!
I really want to see Vettel taking the championship this year.
Actually, Webber had 1 lap more fuel in his car!

Webber seems pretty damned determined to come back from the horrendous injuries he suffered this winter, and he's got alot of character as well. He's obviously a leader in the team and amongst the drivers.
If for any reason they are favoring Vettle it most probably is due to contract realities... Vettle could almost have any ride he wants next year whereas, Webber is pretty committed to the team.
Well put mate, I could not have said it better!
I don't think Webber had always had bad luck. A lot of times he causes his own problems. I mean... why did he had to ride a bicycle so dangerously and injure himself? I do a lot of cycling myself so I know how much risk you can take before losing it.
Webber got hit by a 4WD coming around a blind corner on a dirt road, he was not riding dangerously at all! Causes his own problems?? seriously have you even been watching F1? Webber has had mechanical issues or other cars take him out on 98% of the occasions he has had a competitive car and rarely has he been at fault (08' British GP last year is one of these exceptions).
The reason why you and other's (who dont pay enuf attention) think that Webber is only a good qualifier is due to the fact that he keeps dragging crap cars into grid positions that they have no right to be in and is then swamped in the race.
Thankfully this year he has a great car and will be able to show the "doubters" what he is really made of!
Btw, if you want to see a race where Webbo actually had a good car and was going to land a podium with a quality drive, look back to the 06' Monaco GP and watch him battle Raikonen (Macca) and Nando (Renault) with more fuel onboard than the both of them only to have his Williams catch fire on lap 48 of the race (Kimi's Macca failed only 2 laps later as well).
