^^^Yeah, that softened the eyes of a lot of Vettel haters. His comments were really eloquent for such a young kid too.
When you think about it, he had 75 points in the bag during 3 different races this year - had he not succumbed to mechanical failure etc. Despite that, he battled back past his misfortunes and kept focused. That's very commendable.
I think he has a brilliant future to look forward to, and really deserved this win.
