Red Bull Racing driver and double world champion Sebastian Vettel is extremely frustrated with his performances so far this season. The young German admitted that he was not satisfied after his fourth place finish at the Hungarian Grand Prix at Hungaroring last weekend. Vettel caught himself in the cross fire of absolutely sensational driving last Sunday at the Hungaroring when McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton and Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen went head to head for the title and Hamilton managed to hold on to his lead in the end with Raikkonen coming in second and Romain Grosjean, the other Lotus driver taking the last podium place.
And Sebastian Vettel, who is currently placed in third position of the Drivers’ Championship standings with 122 points, is now just five points ahead of Lewis Hamilton as the Briton looks to mount a serious challenge for the title. Vettel is just 2 points behind Mark Webber, his team mate at Red Bull Racing who is still 40 points behind Fernando Alonso of Ferrari who holds the sway in the Drivers’ Championship.
With Formula 1 going into a summer break, it gives the 24 year old the chance to address the problems that have been plaguing him. And if he can make a comeback in the second half of the season, he will fondly look back at this fourth place finish at the Hungaroring as the place where the turnaround started. But it all depends on how he looks at the races from now on.
Sebastian Vettel believes that both he and his team need to work hard to mount a successful comeback when the sport resumes after the break and is already looking at the Belgium Grand Prix as a race that can make or break the season for both him and Red Bull Racing.
