The first half of my post answered Wynter's point - where I pointed out that the idea that Raikkonen beat Vettel over the final 2/3 of the season is frankly nonsense. The last 4 races, maybe, but qualifying, race results, laptimes...etc would all point to Vettel having the beating of Raikkonen over most of the 21 races, even the ones where Raikkonen retired. Otherwise Ferrari would have paired Leclerc with the cheaper, "better" alternative or kept Raikkonen alongside Vettel.netoperek wrote: ↑Fri Nov 30, 2018 5:04 pmHow have You jumped from that to the conclusion that it's an obvious instance of a nationalistic based over-criticizm is beyond me. There has been no evidence of such bias in Wynter's post, I'd even say that he merely tried to give a different, perhaps wider, perspective to Your statement. Ironically, that would make Your post, in my view at least, THE selective, biased and nationalistic by imposing such things without any meaningful evidence whatsoever.
That being said, subjective opinions are what they are - biased by definition. It doesn't automatically imply nationalistic background, though some of it naturally may be a factor.
The second half of my post was aimed at the boards where there is undoubtedly a strong anti-Vettel sentiment, which I cannot understand. The fact this is a in season testing thread which has been taken over by the Vettel bashers is another case in point. I don't particularly like Vettel or Ferrari (I would like to have seen them win if only to break up the monotony of Mercedes championships) but, like Hamilton, there should be no doubting that he is a quality driver.
