What on EARTH are you talking about. There's no pressure on Seb, he has the best car by a country mile and just has to do his job. He's leading the Championship and the only guy who has a shot at it is in 9th with a car way off the pace. The RB8 is untouchable at this point of the season, hence why everyone including Hamilton was shocked to be anywhere near them. It's like you live in a parallel universe. Melbourne was 8 months ago.
Not that it wasn't a good lap by Seb, but McLaren were far closer than anyone thought they'd be and Webber had a car issue and STILL came third.
You are shocked about where Lewis is? Well, he did the pole position at Abu Dabi last GP... his McLaren has been the most dominant car in almost the qualy this season and you are shocked? What do you think Lewis´is driving, an HRT?
Wake up! The "theory" or "excuses" about the RBR are dead. No more exhaust, no more mapping and still a good car just on the last 4 races. We´ve seen at Abu Dabi how a Lotus and a McLaren were much faster than anyone (last race and not Melbourne)
, and this is a new track, where you never know, you are fighting for a WDC and you must deliver. The only universe in F1 is the real one, and here Vettel achieved the most brilliant pole on the new circuit of the season, being the driver with the most pressure on his shoulders, because he is fighting for a WDC and defending his leading.
Just look how Massa and Webber delivered without pressure and compare. About the bold you have proved enough what you know about the sport.
P.D. Webber had no issue while he did his fastest laps.
