Sebastian Vettel claims he is uninterested in stopping the booing aimed at him in recent races by joining all bar one of his other drivers on social media.

After his recent wins Vettel has been booed by fans on the podium and some believe one of the reasons for the lack of popularity is because he is one of only two drivers not on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Unsurprisingly the only other driver not using the popular social media sites is Kimi Raikkonen.

Vettel is quoted by Brazil's Totalrace as saying: "I have no interest in sharing everything I do in my life. Maybe I am too boring."

What did not go un-noticed in Korea was after the race Vettel was not booed by the local Korean crowd; some say that is because of the low turnout at the often deserted Yeongam track, although German commentator Marc Surer said: "In fact there was a surprising number of locals (on Sunday), and they were fair.

"Sebastian Vettel has a lot of fans."

Of course another reason may be because of the lack of international F1 fans at the event with three previous three races in Belgium, Italy and Singapore very popular with European fans.

One man who believes the booing of Vettel is wrong is Lewis Hamilton, though speaking after the Korean Grand Prix, the Mercedes driver did believe Vettel's continued dominance can be compared to that of Michael Schumacher in the 2000s, something that used to send him to sleep during the races.

"He's won this title already, unless he doesn't go to the rest of the races," Hamilton said. "But he'd probably still win it even then."

Some believe that indicates a lack of respect for Vettel, but via Twitter, Hamilton reiterated: "He (Vettel) is a great human being who is funny and humble. Deserves all the success he is having!"
