A lot of number 1s, and 11s, Vettel clearly ahead but we all knew that anyway, he won his third consecutive Drivers’ Championship, the only driver to have won his first three in consecutive years.

We all know that Vettel is very fast over a single lap, maybe the best qualifier on the grid, but Webber hasn’t been too far behind him. On average he’s been just one place behind him and has beaten him in 9 of the 20 sessions.

The two were fairly close in qualifying, not so in the races, despite the apparent fact that Vettel can’t overtake he has gained 49 places in the 12 races that he has gained positions, compared to the 28 gained by Webber in the 10 races that he has gained positions.

Overall a fairly decent season for Webber, if not for his poor finishes towards the end he could have easily finished 4th in the championship, maybe even 3rd at a push. As with the last few teammate head to heads, it’s time to compare their performances in the last few years, starting with 2011.

2011 was a good year for Vettel, not so good for Webber, he was consistently in the points but always some way behind.

2010 was better for Webber than 2011, not that it could be much worse, and up until the last handful of races their qualifying performances were fairly equal. Both drivers in 2010 had 10 podiums and 3 fastest laps each, however Vettel had 10 poles to Webber’s 5.

This is only 2010-2012, I know they were teammates in 2009 but I don’t have a full spreadsheet of 2009 data yet. Some of the numbers however are just incredible, in the last 58 races Vettel has won 21 and been on the podium in 37 of them!
