The Chinese Grand Prix was not without incident for Sebastian Vettel.
The clash with Daniil Kvyat that occurred on the first lap is being rumored to be many things. However, Sebastian feels that it was an outcome of the race and nothing more. Vettel was initially furious with his opponent Kvyat. Due to the latter driving down the inside around the first corner of the Shanghai track, Vettel was unable to go ahead. As a result, Vettel took the stance of avoiding action and he instead hit on Kimi Raikkonen who was his team mate in the Ferrari team.
The clash made him furious at that time and he did vet it out on Kvyat. However, today Vettel states that it is an incident that is normal in races and at the end it boils down to just that. For Kvyat it was probably the best line to take though it ended up not being great for Kimi and me. He stated that emotions run high when you are racing. Hence, it was natural for him to react though Kvyat probably did not anticipate the effect his action would have on the others
Vettel is surprised to hear that many are still talking about the incident. The incident had taken place about two weeks ago, and hence that it is still a topic being discussed has surprised Vettel. He stated that whatever he said was due to the emotions that arose at that moment. He was oblivious to that fact that it was on camera, but that does not change anything. He would not want to change anything as reactions are natural when crashes happen on the racing tracks. However, he did appear to have regretted coming down hard on Kvyat as they are good friends off the track.
Sebastian Vettel, the 4 time Formula One champion, snatched a great win, which is his 40th win, last time out in Malaysia to put the brake on dominating title holder Hammy as well as runner-up Rosberg – and now Ferrari’s #25 million per year capture is hellbent on stopping a 2nd successive championship haul by Silver Arrows twosome.
Hamilton, who had a wary eye on Ferrari, told that they have they have a huge improvement. They have overtaken your Red Bull, they are progressing and he believes that they are going to have to see them really closely. It is really very nice to see them back but Seb’s victory in Malaysia was not so much a kick as a strong pinch. And they now know that they have a race on their hands.
In the other hand, Nico Rosberg loved the revitalized he challenge too. He told that if Seb closes the gap on them it woud be great for Formula One. It is Game On. (more…)
The 2014 season was a very bad one for the German professional formula one racing car driver, the 27 year old Sebastian Vettel. Christian Horner, who is the principal of the Red Bull team, has said that Vettel even considered leaving formula one racing at one point during that season.
The regulations that came in effect during the 2014 season made racing difficult for the German driver. The aforementioned fact is very well known. Daniel Ricciardo was included in the red bull team in that season and often Vettel and Ricciardo’s prowess were compared.
Vettel was even regarded as an inferior rider than Ricciardo and this, obviously was very frustrating for the German. Vettel was very troubled during the 2014 season. At one point during the last season, Vettel was considering two choices, whether to continue or to leave, according to Horner. He also added that Vettel was not at all happy with the Formula One imposing the new rules. (more…)
