i think the title itself was over at that point mentally.

To be honest I don't really find f1 interesting anymore because seemingly every time it's turn up, qualify, and then the win for Vettel.

It's almost like the Michael Schu years when he would always win. The Red Bull is an awesome car though and it would be exciting to see a young driver in Daniel Ricciardo driving for them next season too.

I can see Vettel overtaking Schu's world records.

he has more races a year to use to overtake him, scary thing is in like two years at this pace he could be past senna's 65 pole positions.

All you can do now is ignore what Vettel is doing (i.e. zooming off into the distance) and see if anything interesting/exciting happens behind him. Like Button trying to miss one of the stops at Malaysia and not getting away with it. Or Webber's car croaking on the last lap.

F1 needs to ban Newey for 2014 to level things out for the rest

Not a Vettel fan but my god that was impressive today. This season has really become boringly predictable. A real shame!

As I said before, the season was over the moment teams successfully put pressure on Pirelli to use harder compounds that didn't wear so quickly. Ferrari & Renault were doomed from that moment on having designed their cars for one type of tyre and then being asked to race on another type. The amount of tyre preservation drivers had to do early in the season was getting a bit silly, but it seems to have gone too far the other way with 1 stop now being a viable tactic.
