    You might need to watch your 2008 review DVD again. He retired in the first 4 GP on lap 1. Two of them were mechanical failures (one I remember was engine) and another was a stall and a slow get away.

    Either way that was Vettels first full season in F1 and things very much got better. Again I don't dispute that Vettel, Hamilton and all have had incidents where they've acted like morons but I can't remember any of them having them as consistently as Max does.

    RasputinLives That I agree and I looked at the incident again and how Max was not punished for weaving which left Daniel nowhere to go is beyond me

    You know I think Nigel Mansell apparently was accident prone in his early years to the point Ron Dennis produced a whole footage of all his crashes and saying Williams made a mistake hiring him so that is the only other person that speaks to mind.

    Other notable drivers who crashed - James Hunt - if anyone can back up him being called Hunt the Shunt then please do

    Andre De Cesaris - were it not for Marlboro he would not be in F1

    One of my friends had a hatred of Hunt as he had been purposely forced of the black stuff in a lower series in the days when such an event still was very dangerous.

    Bill Boddy So it was true he earned the moniker Hunt the Shunt for good reason unless he was named something else I can't say on here

    How I remember 2008 season, Vettel wasn't too much to blame in his first-lap crashes.

    Australia: Three cars side-by-side with Vettel on the middle, ending it with collision with Button who was inside.
    Bahrain: Someone hit Vettel and broke the radiator.
    Spain: Sutil spun just in front of Vettel
    Britain: The camera angle wasn't good but maybe 50/50 with DC.

    His mistakes in early 2009 (crash with Kubica in Oz, spin in Malaysia and crash in Monaco) were worse IMO.
