Sebastian Vettel criticizes: Ralf Schumacher © PIXATHLON / SID
Former Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher expects four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel to apologize to the Ferrari team.
July 07, 2020
Vettel had blamed his team after the race in Spielberg despite his own driving error. “If my teammate (Charles Leclerc, ed.) Finished second, it would have been better to say: ‘Sorry! I screwed up. I turned! I will be back at full throttle next week, ”Schumacher wrote in his Sky-Column.
Vettel had tried vigorously to get past McLaren driver Carlos Sainz, who will take his place at Ferrari next season. Vettel turned and fell back at the end of the field. “I’ve lost control, yes. But basically I had little control over the car. That didn’t help much, ”said Vettel:“ I think I was as fast in the last lap today as on Friday in the first lap with a full tank. Something can’t be right there. “
With the statements after the race, the Heppenheimer was certainly not doing himself a favor, said Schumacher. “It’s a difficult time for Sebastian now. No question. Many speculate that he will not finish this season. I do not believe that. Sebastian is still a strong racing driver, ”wrote Schumacher.
Vettel’s future does not look bright
To have the feeling that his team doesn’t want him anymore, plus a car that doesn’t suit his driving style at all, “this double burden makes it really difficult for him,” emphasized Schumacher.
Vettel in particular needs a trusting environment, says Schumacher. “As in his successful time at Red Bull. They stood by him unconditionally. To do this, he needs a stable car on the rear axle. But in this combination he will hardly be able to apply for a cockpit with a top team! From a German perspective, this is of course very bitter, ”said Schumacher.
