An analysis in rough of Sebastian Vettel's emphatic podium finish underlines the fact that he is a lucky driver. Then, a minute assessment also shows that he is gutsy, crafty and a sensible maniac behind a four-wheeled rampaging Bull.
Going through Sky Sports' lap-by-lap analysis of Vettel's performance in Abu Dhabi - where he began from the last spot - it is interesting to note how fate - yes, we will just say fate for now - played a role in clearing the way for the German driver. The race was like a prolonged scene from a Hollywood blockbuster, like Transporter or Expendables (the first, not the sequel).
Sebastian 'Jason Statham' Vettel first took on the extras and went past them with characteristic ease. He may not have been used to the idea of being in the rear-view mirror of Narain Karthikeyan this early but he soon managed to leave several cars behind albeit minor scratches which in this case were on his front wing. (Luck? No, it is called pace)
