“I don’t have to put up with what isn’t right, and I won’t.” Sebastian Vettel last weekend. Without mincing words for several seasons, he defends tooth and nail everything he considers fair. Baku was no exception. The four-time champion of the Formula 1 world launched his usual messages of support for the LGBT community.
“We must continue to draw attention and show people that there are many things we can do better,” the German told Sky before traveling to Canada.
Beside Lewis Hamilton, have formed a speech already extended on the grill. In fact, the German is beginning to stand out not so much for what he does on the track, with a discreet performance in Aston Martin during this season (13 points), as for his messages.
“These issues are more important than us, more important than sport“, he maintains in reference to his agreement with the British pilot. And in an apparent reference to the new president of the FIA, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, the four-time world champion continued: “I think there are people who are a bit behind in terms of their attitude. The manager had hinted that the drivers were talking too much about political issues.
Mick, his protégé
There is little doubt of Vettel’s attachment to Mick Schumacher. The son of the seven-time world champion is being one of the great disappointments of this season. He still hasn’t scored any points on his Haas, even though his teammate, Kevin Magnussenyes, a good performance is coming together: 15 points and a fifth place that certifies the growth of the team after the change in regulations.
Criticism and rumors about the continuity of the young driver, after two years in Formula 1, have skyrocketed in recent days. A series of criticisms against Schumacher by his boss, Gunther Steiner, Increased by the accident suffered in Monaco, which split the car in two, and the last place in Azerbaijan, they seem to have exhausted Vettel’s patience.
The experienced German pilot justifies Mick’s mistakes: “We all drive to the limit“. “That something can go wrong is also part of this,” adds the four-time world champion.
Although, Vettel weighs, criticism in this regard “is justified”, he considers that they also “need to say something when things go well“.
Giovinazzi, ¿el exchange?
Joe Saward ve a Antonio Giovinazzi as a possible substitute for the German driver for the next season, and after a year without an official seat. “Haas could be interesting in Piastri, but the reality is that Ferrari has a lot to say in the second seat of the American team. Schumacher is not performing at a good level and it seems that will end up signing the current reserve driver of Ferrari, Giovinazzi”, points out the British journalist in his well-known personal blog.
