Re: A couple of Firsts for Vettel?

If Vettel's making a conscious effort to not do the 'finger pose,' then I'm actually thoroughly disappointed. Thoroughly. The fact that our four time world champion would (presumably) feel the need to do away with their long-time signature pose just annoys the life out of me. His pose annoys me jus...
