Vettel takes championship lead with Korea win

After passing team mate Webber in the first corner, Vettel dominated the Korean GP to the flag, while Alonso picked up third place to keep him just 6 points adrift in the championship. Massa displayed some improved form with 4th place, while McLaren's championship hopes were dashed with Hamilton slowed by a broken anti-roll bar, and Button taken out by Kobayashi on the first lap.

Horner   Christian Horner
Well done Seb, faaantaastic, you've won the Korean Grand Prix! Great drive, well done! Brilliant job, brilliant job.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Heartwrenching emotion as usual Horner, sounds like a reluctant 12-year-old practicing for the school play. At least Vettel's ridiculous victory gabbering has a bit of soul to it.
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
Wooooohh, yesssss, yessssss! Thank you boys, thank you boys.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Don't you mean "thank you Webber"? I thought there was a slight hint of team-orders in that first corner...
Horner   Christian Horner
I believe Mark's co-operation in the first corner was unintentional Fernando, but nevertheless we should thank him for preventing a potentially awkward team-order situation later in the race.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Stone the crows Christian, are you thanking me for making flamin' bodgy starts now? Crikey.
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
Just once or twice a year Mark, when lady luck puts you ahead of me on the grid, haha.
massa   Felipe Massa
Did someone say "team orders"?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
It had been a while Massa hadn't it... and your compliance was excellent and immediate as ever, probably the best thing you've done all year.
massa   Felipe Massa
Huh? All I care about is that I was faster than you Fernando, and everyone saw it.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
About that... I only slowed up to see if you still remembered your place in the team hierarchy. FYI, you passed with flying colours.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
That's it guys, my championship's frickin' over. Sorry to all my fans, it was a mega ride while it lasted.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Don't worry Hamilton, there's always next year. Like I keep telling the press, I think you were the right choice for Mercedes going forward.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
Awesome Michael, that's mega gracious of you bro.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Indeed, there's only one way to make my comeback look any good now, and that would be for Mercedes to collapse into a complete clusterfuck when I'm gone. You are the chosen one Hamilton.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
What the frick? I had a frickin' broken anti-roll bar for the whole race in Korea, and then a piece of stupid grass stuck to my car, and I still frickin' beat you dude.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Oh, I thought that flailing piece of astroturf was just another accessory, to go with your ear-rings and Yankees baseball caps.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
If anyone wants to dig into this piece of turf let me know. There might be some flailing around, but I'll try not to damage your anti-roll bar. Except for Kobayashi.
Kobayashi   Kamui Kobayashi
Be calm Jensan, the mystical powers of the braking spirits failed me on this occasion, but I will humbly seek their guidance in future to strengthen my soul and front grip, and prevent further rear impacts.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
Ooh, feel free to slide into my rear any day Kamui, but only if you promise not to puncture my rubber. What an idiot!
