The pilot who lead the championship until the start of the summer break, Sebastian Vettel, he commented on the way in which it has lived the struggle for the title hand-in-hand with Lewis Hamilton during the event Hall of Fame last Tuesday.
The German Ferrari took the most of opportunities available to get to the top, but the two victories in Hamilton in Belgium and Italy, after the doublet of the Maranello in Hungary before the holidays, was the forerunner of an asian tour disastrous for the team of the Prancing horse that ended up deciding the battle for the world.
there is No doubt of his talent and his speed, Hamilton is very fast and does not commit too many errors
“there is No doubt of his talent and speed”, said Vettel of the new four-time champion of the world. “it Is very fast and does not commit too many errors”. The #5 had no choice on such occasions as the main straight in Barcelona, when Hamilton passed him by the power pure after several laps of battling without rest, but the Heppenheim dared to draw a parallel historical about their rivalry with the Mercedes driver. “Jacques said that Schumacher was the best and the most difficult against which to fight. It is exactly that, if you are fighting against the best, that leads you to the next level”.
Ferrari dominated at the Hungaroring despite the fact that Vettel completed part of the race with the steering wheel crooked.
The reliability of the propellant Ferrari undertook a number of careers, both yours as Kimi Räikkönen, but his blow to purpose against Hamilton in Baku or the defense may be too aggressive to Max Verstappen in Singapore will hurt in the same way, and these were decisions that he took himself. “Many of the things that I’ve done were fine, but today I see something different, or perhaps more wisely, which I hope will allow me to do better”.
For his part, Todt stressed the natural talent and the harmonious combination between team and single-seater which took the #44 this year, but Vettel admitted that, having reflected a bit more decisions as important as those that you mentioned, perhaps the balance would have opted on their side or at least would have been left without options, somewhat later than in the Grand Prix of Mexico.
