“This is ridiculous. These people don’t understand what F1 is about. I take my hat off to Vettel” – Niki Lauda on those that boo. 
What we heard from the Mercedes chairman is the true admiration and respect for a fellow driver. Lauda, more than anyone, truly understands what Formula One is about. A triple world champion who got there through the pursuit for perfection.
Formula One is a sport. It’s a global, multi-billion pounds competition in which brave mavericks risk their lives for the ascent of the world championship. The ultimate aim is to win through the collective hard work of a team. Nothing is handed on a platter and each point is truly fought for. It is earned.
There is an inherent beauty in victory; in the attainment of perfection. Vettel and Red Bull in Singapore demonstrated a car and driver in perfect harmony. A shining example of a symbiotic relationship that each and every driver and team seeks to attain. Those who truly know Formula One, understand, respect and doff their hand off to that, as we saw Martin Whitmarsh, Fernando Alonso and Stefano Domenicalli straight after.
Booing the righteous, deserved winner of a competition is booing the sport itself. A deserved winner deserves to be celebrated , for he has proven to be the best on the sporting arena you choose to follow. An intregral part of sportsmanship is the respect for the winner.
Even if the race is “boring” in your view, please respect the winner. It is not Vettel’s fault that he’s simply performing a cut above the rest. He is doing his job. He is doing what any one of his compatriots work and train hard, day and night for.
I personally do not find the races boring. A race is not just about the winner. It’s about each and every fight that happens down the field for each and every point. I personally really enjoyed the Singapore Grand Prix, both of the spectale that was Vettel-Red Bull and all those wheel-to-wheel clashes down the field.
Formula One, in my mind, is an elite sport. There are drivers out there who are literally risking their lives every time they get into vehicles for the joy of victory. You have Kimi Raikkonen racing from 13th of 3rd despite suffering from the debilitating pain of spinal neuralgia.
We are all, of course, entitled to our own opinions. This is mine. If you enjoy booing a deserved winner, please find a myriad of other sports that welcome it.
