    Overreaction? Maybe. If that would have been his 1st or 2nd mistake this season. He might win the race on sunday though, but in my opinion, only if he starts from pole and the race stays bone dry. Otherwise, I would not put much faith in him.
    You said other mistakes go un-noticed as they are not champs or never going to drive for Ferrari....Lewis made more small mistakes than Seb did today.....Kimi made a mistake etc etc your just wanting to attack Seb for some reason......

    Retired from F1 come end of season.

    And it's really tiresome to see people say "what if he was racing".

    In my opinion a mistake in F1 is defined by the consequences it causes. Lewis almost hit Seb. That was a mistake. Consequence? Nothing.
    Bcz it was ALMOST. Seb hit the wall. Not ALMOST hit the wall. That was a similar mistake.
    Consequence? Minor damage to the car, possible practice gearbox change. Unnecessary risk.
    I dont attack Seb, its not attacking when you point out if he does something wrong. I also praise him for doing something right.

    Well last year this same race we saw how Vettel lost the WDC... this year again too many mistakes with a better car. I am done waiting for Ferrari to win the WDC FOR MANY YEARS NOW. We waited so many years for Ferrari to give a car which is match to Merc, but now cos of Vettel we might lose it again which is not acceptable at all. I donít have anything against him. I am the happiest when he wins but 4 time champ canít be making such silly mistakes when you know you are fighting against Ham. I did support him even in Bakhu last year but I fail to understand whatís wrong with him now???

    Just after Spa we were all praising Seb for his efforts, he's pushing boundaries and doing whatever he can to try and make up for the Germany and Monza episodes, trouble is that the harder he tries, there's more room for errors to creep in. He's even questioning himself, which is never a good thing when you're up against someone like HAM who has more luck than anyone on the grid. I admit that HAM is a great driver but I hope he never comes near our team. And Kimi was faster today, so well done to him and Seb had better take a chill pill, and don't even mention the chance of rain........

    It may turn out to be next year thanks to Charles that Sebastian is not completely needed.

    true, RB supposedly brought more things to try, so some cars are little different than what Thursday showed

    Over reaction slightly to a small mistake, when Seb wins on Sunday who will care about today?
    That's what I'm saying! Sign Kimi back!

    A Smile and a Kiss

    Kimi fastest as Seb brushes the wall: “There’s potential in the car”

    Singapore, September 14 – The first day at Marina Bay is mostly about adapting to the challenges of the 23-corner course, with a first practice session held still in daylight and a second one run after nightfall. Kimi Raikkonen came out as the fastest man – incidentally setting a new unofficial track record, allowing for the fact the circuit has been shortened by 2 metres – at the end of P2, while Seb Vettel was the only driver not to benefit from the clear advantage of the Hypersoft compound. A contact with the barrier out of the last chicane meant that his SF71H had to be driven back to the garage for repairs, which took till the end of the session. However, the car seemed to be quick and the battle is very open for tomorrow.

    “Today everything felt OK and things ran pretty smoothly,” said Kimi. “In the first session we checked many things and made some changes; in the second one everything seemed to work . It was a normal Friday, but obviously this track is different to many others and the second session is held in different conditions from the first one. The tires behaved pretty much as we expected. The Hypersoft is the one that provides the best grip for sure, so it is very useful here, at least for the short runs. Obviously they are not going to last as long as the other compounds, but we are aware of that. I tried two different floors; there’s not a night and day difference between them, but we wouldn’t use something if we didn’t think it is better. Now we‘ll keep on doing our job and see what it brings tomorrow. For sure it will be close”.

    “After hitting the wall”, said Seb “we took some precautions and decided to stop running. We lost some time, which is not ideal, but nevertheless I got a good feeling with the car. Luckily, I’ve been here before and I know the track so I can make up for lost time. Tomorrow I’ll be keen on finding the right balance to feel the car a little better than I did this evening. Then, I think it should be fine. On the other hand, Kimi’s data is very important too and it’s good to know he had a smooth session. I lost a bit of time today, but it can happen. In the evening we tried something on our car which didn’t work very well, but the car is good and has potential. I believe we can improve and tomorrow it will be better. Also, I think on Sunday tires will be an important factor, so we’ll see”.

    Guys, relax. He brushed the wall!

    He actually did the same thing on the pole lap here last year, one of the best laps ever. Freaking lucky Lewis, smashed his tyre against the wall very similarly in Monaco in 09? and Won!!!

    Relax. I'm encouraged with Red Bull being competitive here to take points away from Merc.

    But a little concerned that we may have brought too many hypers...
