‘This has made the game sterile’
King’s class veteran Sebastian Vettel achieved his greatest results of the season final weekend in Turkey when he unexpectedly crossed the end line in third place. The rationale why he solely managed this in Turkey reveals a flaw within the sport, he explains.
In an interview with the German Zeit, Vettel explains that the weird circumstances in Turkey allowed him, as a driver, to ‘make extra of a distinction’, quite than the ability of the engine figuring out the rating.
For Vettel, the truth that racing expertise solely turns into vital when climate circumstances change means there’s a downside with the game: “It might be good for Formula 1 if it wasn’t all the time so excellent. All the things is turning into increasingly sterile, particularly in relation to driving”. “Each centimeter is recorded with onboard cameras, the traces that we drive are recorded, we are able to examine, even throughout groups, with the GPS information.”
A little bit humanity
Vettel’s recommendation? Put extra emphasis on racing and introduce some extra humanity: “With extra humanity, the entire thing is likely to be extra fascinating generally.”
