Yup. But at the same time - I don't think that the current Vettel is the same driver
I second Raymond's notion.
In regards to Silverstone 2011, I think there's another factor there that continues to be overlooked (and I preface my following statement with the fact that I am a Webber fan, but the team aspect of Formula 1 cannot be underestimated) and that is Webber also being out on the track. If you are to include Rosberg and Schumacher and Massa in the tussle for the WDC with Vettel, than you cannot forget that Webber is a major thorn in their - and every other contender's - sides.
If Vettel was alone on the track, then I do not see him holding out for a 3rd WDC, as the field has a strong list of contenders that are aggressive enough to either overtake or hold him off in the first part of any race day. However, because he is part of a larger team that has Webber out there, there is that one other additional fast driver aching for points, but will also act as a player to upset other teams.
That is why I hope that whoever eventually replaces Webber has to be as fast as him or faster. The greatest advantage that Red Bull gets on race day is the full front row, and a teammate that can put pressure on those seeking pressure on the front-man. If the team, in addition to a great car and Vettel's improving skills, continues on the same strengths as last year, Vettel is sure to get another WDC.
