Good thing he's learned his lesson. I maintain the only thing that will get through to him is to watch a race from the pit wall. He has simply gotten away with too much to have any respect for team management.

He's just following in Schumacher's footsteps in terms of how he treats his team mates.  I have no time for his attitude at all.

I see the Schumacher hate retoric is still I vogue around here. I fail to see the comparison between Schumacher's relationship with his fellow teammates and what happened in Shanghai between Vettel and Webber. I can't recall Schumi ever disregarding team orders so blatantly and publicly.
Kimi's back! Future double WDC.

Thing is, Schumacher had it contracted to his team mates that they weren't allowed to beat him so he never had to disobey team orders ;)

Poor Rubens would have been fired if he beat Micheal and was basically told as much over the radio once.

What Vettel did do? Just showed what he is, so why the fuss :DntKnw:

People knew about this side of his for ages, why screaming, shouting now?

It's not rhetoric, and it's not hate.  It's just opinion :).  Vettel is very close to Schumacher, and is on record as wanting to emulate him.

Schumacher had team orders which meant he would always be able to overtake his team mate regardless though, so a direct comparison isn't viable.  My point was about comparing the attitudes of Schumacher and Vettel towards their team mates, and, in that respect, they are very similar in my view.  Vettel is just more petulant about it.

At least Schumacher's team was not claiming that both drivers get equal opportunity of everything. They knew they were Schumacher's mule. But in case of Vettel, in one hand his team says of equal treatment while they are trying make life difficult for Webber.

Yes I agree the attitude is almost the same, but the situation could not be more different.
