Really? I think Vettel and Hulk would be a great pairing. I'd naturally be rooting for Hulkenberg, but Vettel would be undisputed number 1 in the team then surely, not just suspected number 1. Wonder if Ferrari already have their eyes on Hulk though, after they let Perez slip away.

Vettel would most probably batter Hulk on current performances

That's a big if. Hulkster would still have to raise his own game quite a lot to challenge Vettel and still Vettel would have the advantage because he's been at Red Bull for about a million years already while Hulkster would be in a new team.

I think the whole team is better off with Mark as he's been there forever and is part of the machine. Make no mistake, its the machine that is responsible for the success, not one driver. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, ya know? But I don't think the young Germans would have any trouble on a teammate level. Seb already drives alongside someone as capable of winning each race as he is. I suspect you'd see some first corner contact when they sit on the front row though, as Seb won't be guaranteed to get there first without Mark in the other car ;)

Hang on! Hulkenberg hasnt won a race yet, he has had an oppurtunity and blown it. Vettel had a chance to win at Monza 08 and took it. You cant count your chickens before they hatch. Being a promising midfielder dosnt mean you are already champion.

Thats true. Imagine if Ferrari signed Hulk and Vettel for 2014? Both joining a new team hulk would beat vettel.

Hulk needs to prove himself in that Sauber before he can think of going to a top team.

edit: and also lol, i've been seeing a lot of baiting in the thread titles around here lately.

If Webber was half as bad as some seem to think, he would not keep getting his contract renewed.

Hulk is nowhere near Vettels level just yet. Just compare there second seasons in reasonably similarly competitive cars. Vettel took every chance we had and took a win when it came his way. Hulk blew his chance of a win with two major mistakes and was being out done by his team mate for the first half of the year. Remember as well that 2012 Hulk was a lot more older and experienced than 2008 Vettel. Vettel has improved a huge amount since then.

If Hulk joins RBR, Vettel probably won't be in trouble. Hulk will just probably become the next webber

I think it's more like McLaren let Hulkenberg (and Hamilton) slip away. You know, fast drivers.

:thumbup: on both the points you've raised.

I only noticed Hulk recently, and was impressed with a couple of drives. If he continues in this vein next season it would be nice to see him perform in a v good car in 2014.

Ferrari is out (they've gone way overboard in the no. 1 driver stakes with Alonso - I wouldn't wish being his team mate on anyone), McLaren have already signed Perez as their 'up and coming' driver and Lotus have RoGro as the 'up and coming' driver. That only leaves Red Bull unless something changes at the other top teams.

I'm with you on that, I'd of preferred Hulk over Perez. Though that's just my blind bias, I can't for certainty say Perez is a bad choice :P

Diablo, that's more of a comment than a new topic to be honest, could you elaborate exactly why Vettel would be in trouble? Hulkenberg is no slouch but I just don't see what a triple world champion has to fear from any driver on the grid, especially when he has been at the team for 5 seasons by the time 2014 arrives.

You could argue that Vettel didn't have a SC so the rest of the field could catch back up to him

I think they go into every round with as much chance as each other. Same with qualifying. One seems to capitalize on those chances more than the other.

PlanetF1 is so inconsistent with who they love or hate.

For instance Webber was beating Seb for half of 2012 and suddenly he was great again. But now Hulkenberg is no were near Vettel's league, does this mean that Webber is in Seb's league or not? Or is he the worst driver 4eva and eva again.
