Sebastian Vettel couldn't be bothered by anyone today as he started from pole and led every single lap in this race to secure a perfect result at the Singaporean GP. As Jenson Button finished second and Mark Webber third, Vettel will have to wait until Japan to be sure of his world championship title.
You expect him to go against his own teammate Alonso? The team spearhead? Whom Ferrari invested millions? Nope, that wouldnt happen. Had Massa reacted like that to a team mate he would indeed be stupid. Makes zero sense.
And seriously, patting a guy on the shoulder you count as revenge? Good job you never raced with Jason Plato, because you would probably have him up in the Hague for crimes against humanity!
I don't think what Massa did was good, but it also wasn't really all that bad. Let them sort it out on the track. Looking through this year's results, it wouldn't surprise me if Massa wasn't driving in F1 for all that much longer anyway.

From you own teammate? He did nothing, sucked it all in, tail between the legs and swallowed his spit. And he wants to get physical with a competitor?
Maybe he wanted to keep his drive at Ferrari and publicly fighting between teammates is a no-no in that particular team? You're impossible to reason with because of your irritating bias, but try and separate the two incidents if your brain allows it.
One was a competitor making a mistake, hitting his car causing a puncture and causing him to lose time replacing a tire due to damage that wasn't his fault. Worth fighting over? Worth being belligerent in front of the media and letting Lewis know it wasn't appreciated? I don't know. I'm not privy to what Ferrari require of him to keep his job, neither are you, and a good result may be what he needed. Good being subjective of course, his version of a good result may be different to Alonsos of course. Lewis making a mistake and flattening his tire definitely didn't help his race and I would have been angry too. Not the first time Lewis has hit Massa this year after all.
The other situation was Alonso establishing dominance and maybe Ferrari backed him up in that incident and not Massa. Maybe he didn't say anything publicly because he actually likes driving for Ferrari and would like it to stay that way. Did that ever occur to you? Massa keeps a brave face and tenacity for Ferrari publicly, but does what he's told. Every driver does this, not just Massa.
Lewis is biting his tongue after being a pompous ass and chewing out his mechanics for a mistake, being a pot calling the kettle black in the process, and then goes out making mistakes in the race and having Button both mentally and statistically kicking his ass as of late. Lewis is mentally weak right now and everyone can see it. He hasn't lashed out in the media in the past few weeks but he's not there mentally or Button wouldn't be making him look ordinary when the pressure is on.

No, because it wasn't. [...] I thought the race was quite good. I enjoyed the battle between Alonso and Webber, but I was also watching the battles on live timing between the mid field bunch, which as ever was packed.
Are you serious? Or are you purposely trying to find a positive from Hamiltons race ?
