Vettel with residual alcohol in the shortage of FIA President Jean Todt? Background: In Baku, the then Ferrari star lost his nerve in 2017 because Mercedes opponent Lewis Hamilton had slowed down too much in Vettel’s opinion shortly before the end of a safety car phase. The German then practiced vigilante justice and drove Hamilton with his Ferrari into the side of the car – with full intent!
One thing is certain: Mick Schumacher should not take Vettel as an example in this case. Otherwise, the Hessian is currently Schumacher’s closest confidante in the paddock.
The paternal-friendly relationship between the two began in 2011. At that time, Schumi junior met the newly crowned world champion Vettel on the plane. Mick: “My first memory of Sebastian was when I went on vacation with my family. He and his girlfriend accompanied us on the plane because we had the same goal. We played Angry Birds on his iPad. “
Meanwhile, both drive together in Formula 1. And Vettel praises his protégé. “Everyone knows that the Haas is the weakest car in the field. And still keep calm, show constancy and also keep motivation. We talk more often and I think he pushed the whole team forward, even if the starting position is not easy. “
