the only ones having the right to boo about that would be the senna family, Not some fans not at all involved in that.

 

What "right to boo"? In every sport, people are booed. I'd say that it is the right to boo of any fan who pays a $500 ticket to watch a race.

 

Alonso was booed at Interlagos last year, and to make things worse, he had just lost a world title. I don't remember Alonso making a big fuss about it like Horner is doing.

 

I don't promote the booing of Vettel, but unlike some people, I don't consider it to be criminal either. A lot of the boos are Vettel's own doing.

You can't make statements like that and expect everyone to cheer for you.

Sorry, I don't see it this way. Seb has become more and more obnoxious. The trio of Horner, Marko and Vettel have just displayed no humility and class - Just compare their behavior to any of the other teams that have won a lot.

 

 

Seb's 1) actions and statements on the Multi-21 affair, 2) stating that other teams don't work as hard as them (though his words were much worse) are just two major examples how he is as bad as Marko and Horner. Nevermind, showing disregard and thumbing your nose at your competitors, these guys have been instrumental in doing the same to their teammate. A lot of people feel bad for Webber for having to endure these guys.

 

That's where all the booing comes from, not from Alonso throwing his hat

Totally agreed with this. Sebastian's and Red Bull's dislike comes mainly from their methodology. There are reasons for such boos and its universal around most races they visit. You hardly see Messi getting booed at anyone else besides Madrid. People admire him generally everywhere. Success doesn't always bring boos, it's the behaviour and actions with success that create these sort of reaction from the public. Somewhat Seb and Red Bull haven't done so well. And honestly, Horner and Marko are just stirring the plot with the recent booing, provoking Alonso as 'F1 devils' 

 

"I should go to Ayrton's grave and tell him what his nephew did"

Oh wow, that's just rude.

I think it was in context: the reporter asked him(something like this: ) if he heard that before the race Senna said that he wanted Alonso to win, and then they collided, then Vettel laughs it off, and says the upper line jokingly.

Come on, that has been discussed in its own thread a long while ago. People complain about drivers being PR robots, but when they phrase something badly, it is remembered for years.

Stop being offended at every little thing, will you? It honestly looks like you're looking to find reasons to hate the guy

I don't think one needs to look very hard when having things like those declarations.

 

Considering their hero Ayrton Senna won 71% of his races from pole position, you'd expect them to be cheering for that.

 

Well Senna also had Prost as a team mate, and an era when you could set up the car only for qualifying. So I'm sorry, it's not the same.

And that is relevant to a pole-to-win-by-a-margin race how?

So where modern-day drivers like Vettel have to sacrifice either their qualifying pace or their race pace, Senna had the best of both worlds.

Thanks for reminding me.

Over the TV it appeared that the crowd was pretty cheerful yesterday and not as hostile towards Vettel as some of the forumers here expected. Anybody standing in the crowd witnessing the same thing?

Is the explanation really needed?

It is more like when Red Bull found ways not to compromise qualifying for race pace, via manual height adjustement in parc ferme cleaning the car or engine maps, they are not playing on a level field anymore.

LOL

Alonso throwing his cap on the podium causes fans to boo at Vettel?

Red Bull making this accusation is pathetic.

Some serious need to grow a pair here...

I will love to see the excuses they make in Brazil if Alonso does not make it to the podium...

Forget that, It is all Alonso's fault.

Discussing why Vettel is booed in the first place is exactly what closed previous discussions down.  Please keep this one fcussed.

I read Seb's comments as a inoffensive joke, whether Bruno was offended or not is another question.

 

Plus this article states that Seb was joking when he said from the expression on his face, and he frowned upon those who later trolled Bruno on social media - http://grandprix247....no-senna-abuse/

 

In a car that is probably the best, is it harder to win title in 1988 against Alain Prost, than it would be for a driver in 2013 taking on Mark Webber, the answer is a clear yes. But, I am not sure what that has to do with Seb getting booed to a great degree.

 

Its needless to compare every driver on the standard of Senna or Prost, different era, different circumstances.

Does he get booed at Madrid? The problem for Seb is that while Messi only has to encounter larger numbers of rivaling Madrid fans in Madrid, Vettel's rival's fans are present at every single F1 event he participates.

Exactly. The equivalent would be if Barcelona and Real Madrid were travelling around the world playing a match each week in a different country and someone was saying "see, Messi gets booed everywhere, the whole world hates him" when obviously there would be Real fans everywhere and it would merely be a different part of the same group of fans doing the booing. And in case of travelling fans, potentially some of the same people as well.

 

And btw, whoever thinks Messi is only booed in Madrid needs to watch more Spanish football.

Why would Americans boo?  I have to think whoever said that is either not an American or they let their personal F1 experience steer their judgment.

If Vettel makes up for Malaysia and returns a win to Webber, all the booers will write apology letters to him.  Not only that but likely will become his fans, as well as inheriting all of Webbers Formula 1 fans.

 

Of course Vettel will not do that, because vanity always come first.   But he has in his hands a method to do things right and never have to speak about himself being booed again.

because Schumi "returning" a win to Rubens made everything allright?

Personally hope he doesn't even contemplate gifting a win. He made a choice, the choice was justified in his mind, he lived with the consequences of his choice, gifting a win would be nothing short of "please like me"
