Damon Hill, Gerhard Berger and Mark Webber They analyzed the reasons for the bad moments of the four F1 world champions
nStill a new topic.Others have already commented that sometimes Sebastian Vettel Can’t handle stress well. The fact is that the German started the season badly.Its premiere Aston Martin To say the least, this is disappointing.
Last year, his performance last year was already terrible Ferrari. He only finished 13th with 33 points. The joy of getting on the podium at the Turkish Grand Prix. Otherwise he will obviously be defeated by his teammates, Charles Leclerc (98 points ranked 8th).
And this course has not yet had a good start. He was eliminated in Season 1 (18th) Later, when they learned that he did not respect the double yellow flag waving at the end of the finish line (brake at turn 1), they recognized him in five places. He won the fifteenth place.During the test, he Esteban Ocon, For which he was fined 10 seconds.
In fact, it is not surprising that many people doubt whether this decline will lead to the end of Heppenheim driver’s career. Although the situation may change… Vettel himself has predicted that in order to get the most benefit from AMR21, this will cost him. “The steep learning curve is waiting for me”, He had predicted before the disastrous Bahrain Grand Prix.
Damon Hill What they saw was something strange happened.World champion (1996), he had previously stated that he had not seen a champion four times Neither motivation nor confidence, Which graphically defines the moments Vettel experienced. “It’s like seeing Piñata made in Mexico.Just like Vettel was beaten like Piñata. What happened to him was terrible. I think certain things must be changed psychologically. You need to see a mysterious person and scavenge some kind of demon. It seems that he should be punished for what he did wrong. At some point you can leave there. But I don’t think you will hesitate to overcome it. It’s like a football tackle, you can’t walk halfway“, Hill has been designated in “Podcasts” “F1 Countries”.
He added: “He is being punished. You can see how the bruises caused him to pay attention. The situation is getting worse. You must get rid of all these negative and bad feelings. After completing this operation, you will regain all the skills in the world. May be with Lewis (Hamilton) and Max (Verstappen)“.
In addition to the criticized cataract, it has also been added Gerhard Berg. The Austrians believe that what happened to “Seb” is nothing new. “Sebastian is a four-time world champion, so he is one of the best drivers. But when he acts under pressure, he will never react very well.When do we remember Daniel (Ricardo) Coming to Red Bull, Daniel was very strong and put pressure on Sebastian. For Sebastian, it is difficult to solve this problem,” Berger said in the “Fast Lane” podcast.
The former driver, who won 10 races, also warned that he also suffered a lot from Charles Leclerc in the “Suderia” race (yes, he did not suffer from Kimi Raikkonen). “The same thing happened to Ferrari, Now I think he is not free, nor relaxed. You may want to give it a try, but because the car is not good enough or the shape is not good enough, it is currently not possible. In this case, you need to sit down, take a step back, relax, and success will come again.“, he added.
At the age of 33, Vettel seemed exhausted. “After you have participated in so many competitions, when you have won the world championship four times, Sometimes, you may not want to take all risksHe warned that here, you will no longer win any games like before.
with Reims stroll (Bahrain ranked 10th) has already begun to lose. “Starting from a mistake, it means more pressure.’Seb’ doesn’t like pressure. If you are slower than your teammates, and your teammate is also the owner of the team (Lance is the son of Lawrence Stroll), Obviously they can give your teammates more time, but is it different everywhere? If you are slower than your teammates, then the team will naturally focus more on the faster people. In the end, this is a psychological idea . This is an awkward situation when you are in a team and your teammates are faster.But this is what you have to deal with. If you are an athlete at this level, then you must know how to deal with strong teammates,” he added.
Another authoritative voice that analyzes the complex situation Vettel is going through is Mark Weber. The Australian was a Teuton teammate (between 2009 and 2013), and when asked if the great Sebastian would appear somewhere, he admitted to himself “Somewhat nervous”. “How many bullets does he have left in the room?I do not know. I think you will like this new environment, there is no doubt about it. You will never like to have a British culture in Maranello again.. This will not automatically degrade performance. I think you will enjoy more. You must honestly say that you are not the beginning of your career. Now he is running in the central region, he is not a rider in the central region. This is why his future makes me nervous,” Weber emphasized in the “On The Marbles” podcast.
