If we're talking about what I'd LIKE him to do (and therefore what I would do personally) then I'd say he should seek out a new challenge at one of the other top teams. I'd love to see him take on Alonso at Ferrari.

However if we're talking about what he SHOULD do (and what I imagine he will do), then he should stay at RBR for as long as they are the top team. He's winning consistently, racking up an impressive array of records and statistics and getting plaudits from those in the paddock and from journalists across the world. Why on earth would he want to change that? And let's face it, he really couldn't give a flying toss what us lot think.

Funny how no one regards Jim Clark's single employer history as a shortcoming.

I don't see the difference between Vettels situation and Schumacher's dominant years. Vettel widely viewed as lucky whereas Michael an outstanding driver, can't be right.

Perhaps Clark's fellow Scot, one Jackie Stewart should be reminded of it?

It's always a drawback when I think of Jim Clark.

One thing that sets him apart for me though is the fact he skipped the 1965 Monaco GP to go and win the Indy 500, yet still took the F1 title that season.

I'd stay.

I'd rather end up with 10 WDC and have 5% of the fans wonder if I was really that good than 5 WDC but only 1% wonder. When it comes down to it, stats matter more than most other things in the long run.

You're right, but with some drivers - as with many other competitors - what they feel about themselves in comparsion with their contemporaries is imprortant. IMO Vettel is one of them. He will want the challenge and the ability to tell himself later that he beat a highly rated driver like Alonso fair and square on a similar machine. He can do it too.

I'd punch Helmut Marko in the face and moon Christian Horner.

This. If he is going to beat MSC's record, I think this is the way to do it.
