Even though this has not been a vintage season for Sebastian Vettel, he has said that he will be doing his best when it comes to challenging for the title. The Spaniard and the Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso is the favourite to win the title this season. He currently leads the table by 40 points over the Red bull drivers Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel. With regard to the German, Fernando Alonso enjoys a 42 point advantage. The second half of the season will be beginning shortly and Sebastian Vettel has said that he is already looking to get closer to Fernando Alonso in the first few races in the second half of the campaign.
A number of mechanical failures have meant that Sebastian Vettel is not where he would like to be in the table. The last two races especially have been extremely tough on the German, but he reckons that the team has done enough work in the summer break in order to be competitive once the season resumes with the Belgian Grand Prix. The 25-year-old Sebastian Vettel was absolutely unstoppable last season, but he has endured a tough season this time around. He is separated from his teammate Mark Webber by just two points.
“The one who is leading is always the one that everyone is after. I think he’s in a good position but we still have a lot of races to go. I think it’s a better championship in that regard; to be able to catch up rather than if you have only two cars that work properly and the first four are always given. I think the way the racing has been this year, you can catch up points pretty quickly. Everything was fine until I became competitive and started to fight with Michael,” said Sebastian Vettel.
