I honestly don't understand how somebody could dislike Vettel *that* much. I think a lot of people let his domination color their 'like/dislike' of him big-time.
Anyways, goodbye. I cant respect the decision to drop the support over a driver, though. That's not a real team fan, sorry.
I'll never understand why people say this. At some point in our lives, there was something that attracted us into supporting a particular team. it doesn't matter what it was, for each person it will be different, but does that mean that we are all now bound to blindly support that particular team till the day we die or else be labelled as "not a real fan"?
In South Africa we have a massive problem because of this kind of attitude with politics. Our government is failing miserably, yet the majority of the people keep voting the same party in because that is who they support, not because they believe it's the best one for the job.
For the record, I consider myself a supporter, not a fan. Fan seems too fickle, and my heart has been bleeding Ferrari since the turmoil of Senna's death in 1994 turned F1 upside down for me. 20 years I have stood behind this team, believing in the same passion that drove the people within it, it's leaders.
The events of the last few months have thrown some difficult questions at me. I think it began with naming the car F14T rather than F166 Turbo, dispensing with a long held Ferrari tradition, and culminating with the firing of Luca di Montzemelo. For me, he was a proper don like figure, exactly the type of man that should be leading Ferrari. He had presence and commanded respect. He was also fairly intimidating and you could tell the team were on edge when he was around, as it should be when the Big Boss arrives. He kept the legend of Enzo alive.
So while I haven't made my final decision as yet, I too, am facing the possibility of turning my back on the team I have loved for so long, because I feel that they have become an unrecognisable group of strangers that I no longer have faith in nor believe that they have the passion of Ferrari in their blood. From next year, it'll be no more than another manufacturer backed team, no different to Mercedes.
