Why Vettel's Aston Martin F1 debut was so bad

  • Publisert 13 dager siden

    THE RACE

    Runtime: 05:45

    Sebastian Vettel's first F1 weekend as an Aston Martin driver couldn't have gone much worse. He was eliminated in Q1, had a silly incident in the race, and picked up penalties for infringements on Saturday and Sunday. To make matters worse, he's struggling to get up to speed with the team's AMR21, which has taken a step back from its race-winning predecessor over. the winter. There's plenty of time to recover, but Vettel would have been hoping to start from a slightly higher base

Vettel looks completely out of sorts. He needs to put a page out of the Nigel Mansell book and make the team give him what he needs versus being a nice guy in Formula 1. I hope Ferrari hasn't ruined him like Jean Alesi, Ivan Capelli, Kimi, Alonso, and so many others. If he needs to modify his driving style to extract more out of the car, he needs to do it...NOW!!!

Vettel has always been mediocre plus a bit. It was the car that won him his F1 titles NOT his driving skill. Alonso and Hamilton are streets ahead of him especially nowadays. Vettel`s mindset is about as hard as a soft boiled egg. As pressure mounts, he will make more and more mistakes as he tries less and less attractive moves on track. He should have retired 2 yrs ago.

Predicted this way back when the race and the comments were talking up his move. Which was all nonsense. The bottom line is Vettle is and always has been incapable of fighting in traffic. He's damn quick in free air in a good car. That's it! soon as you put other cars around him, his entire career. He's been shite. He makes shit mistakes, he makes rookie moves, he panics and he fucks up. End of story.

With Vettel its always someone else's fault, or the car's fault or the man in the moon's fault. His arrogance can never ever accept he is a flawed driver and always has been unless he is out front with a car advantage. Except now he is also a 'has been'. He was a twat at Red Bull who ignored team orders, treated team mates like shit and Horner gave into him every time. Its also the case that F1 cut him huge slack as well. His inability to actually race was found out at Ferrari and now he will be found out at AM. Someone will regret ever getting him into AM.

It's amazing how people just write off a 4 time world Champion so easily. He had two amazing cars back in 2011 and 2013, but doesn't people remember how tight was in 2010 and 2012? He wasn't even leading the championship until the last race when it ment in 2010 and back in 2012 he had to come back from a big difference of points after the summer break, even finishing 3rd when starting from pit lane in Abu Dhabi or finishing in the right position after being spunned in the last race of the season with all the preasure to be WC. Also people seem to forget that he is the third driver with most victories in the Scuderia while battling with the most dominant team in F1 history. 2015 was an amazing year for him and also 2017 when the car was no where near the Mercedes (engine was way less powerful) and still putting great performances and even finishing second in the championship. People say he also made mistakes those season, but in fact, he was penalized by reliability issues in Japan and Malaysia. Singapore is also attributed to him as a mistake, but the truth is that the first contact was done with Kimi, who by the way, had the full picture of what was happening. 2018, yeah, we might agree he did big mistakes and probably lost the championship, but who remember all mistakes Alonso did in 2010 that also made him lose the championship? China, Monaco, GB, Spa are just some of them, yet nobody remembers. 2019 him and Leclerc were quite tight, and reliability issues at the end in Russia and USA made him lost the position against him who in Seb's words "Is the most talented driver he came across", maybe he will be a future multiple world champion who knows. And 2020 was just full of bullshit in the team, he was let alone, you can just have a look how toxic the environment was with Binotto's words or DTS episode. And for this year, it is the first race, he was the driver with less laps in testing and he is coming to a completly different car philosophy, it's to soon to judge, and people might be correct. We all know Seb is a one of a kind. He might not be the driver with most raw speed, or with the best battling capabilities, but he is by far one of the best reading the races, building strategies and when he has a car that suits his driving style (which by the way is also quite special) he can be unbeatble. I have been reading things like he is the worst multiple world champion in history, a guy who has multiple records, the one with most consecutive wins, the 3rd driver with most wins in F1 history and the 3rd with most win for Ferrari. I don't know why, but think he butthurted so many people back in the days that they just want him to be written off, but, sorry for them, he will forever be one of the legends in F1.

I would be careful, making excuses for a 4 time World Champion... Yes, he did not have much luck on his side lately, but if your head is clearly not where it should be and then refusing to acknowledge that a shrink might have helped and insisting you can do it yourself... I don't know. I mean, I do like Vettel, but I also believe that most of the 'mess' he finds himself in, is of his own doing and down to his own decisions and perhaps also his reluctance to accept that even he is human and could benefit from a shrink every now and then.

Older drivers lose their edge because they fear making mistakes, they fear tarnishing their reputation and legacy. Vettel back at Red Bull had a lot to prove. Vettel right now is simply trying to protect and justify his legacy. Same with Fernando, Kimi and Schumacher in his late years. As the popular saying goes, a person who does not love leaves no hostage to fortune.

If he doesn’t do better later this season, then let’s hope in vain that the 2022 regs will be his saving grace. If the 22 regs help, then he’s set for life. If the 22 regs cause him to do just as poorly, then this will probably be when I’m going to stop having so much faith in Seb. I’d really hate if that happens because when I decided to really start watching actual races in 2018, instead of just liking the cars alone my entire life, I Seb has always been my favorite.

Seb is still one of the best F-1drivers. The day he finally gets his mental performance back to where it was before he ever signed The Ferrari deal, he will become a winner again. Ferrari team eats your mental capacity to do anything, if you're not able to win. We've seen that happen to many drivers before Vettel, with at least one exception... Kimi Raikkonen, Who is mentally one of the strongest, if not the strongest, F-1 driver. Not even Ferrari was able to brake his mind, but then again, he's a Finn! Now Seb just needs to clear his mind and strengthen his mind again and start to do what his passion really is : Racing!

Sebastian Vettel is a great guy but frankly I never think of him as a great driver. He won 4 world championships because he had the fastest car and his team favored him over the second drivers. The championships he won was because of the genius of Adrian Newey. Fernando Alonso gave him a title fight even with a much slower car in his 4 years of glory. Daniel Riciardo and Charles Leclerc both came and beat him in their very first years even when they were being treated as number 2 drivers and not given the best favorable strategies. He was in the right place at the right time and hence won 4 championships mostly because of chance or luck and less because of his driving talents.

Because Vettel is bad. He’s poor at understanding and communicating setup. With RB, Newey had the experience to understand from the data how to build and set up a car that best fit Vettel, he didn’t have to rely on Vettel’s ability to communicate. BTW, the video is wrong in saying Vettel performs well in a car that has a front that works. The RB had the most stable REAR, and that made him comfortable. He prefers a car with a slight push and does not like a car that’s loose.

There is one thing I was gonna fear. The car only could get worse than 2020. They did a perfect copy of the Mercedes and I think they never really understood the car at all (why it was as fast as it was). They only were so strong because it was the Mercedes of 2019. So now they had to develop a car which they don't understand and this with the new regulations. For me it was nearly clear that this won't work and now they have to pay. I hoped so much for seb that this wouldn't happen but now we can see it did. The car is shit. Maybe I'm wrong but I think the car is miles away from the podium or anywhere near. This and Sebs frustration is the problem.

MS started doing people up the rear , just as SV has done on more than one occasion, when he lost depth perception. SV looks like a weary 45yo, his eyes have looked tired for a fair few years now. He complained about the halo downtube affecting his vision, I believe he has never adapted to it as others have. Yes there are many problems with the car, it looked terribly unstable, just from the short clip in the vid. Sure he`ll get further up the grid as it improves, but don`t expect him to be challenging the top four to six drivers, unless he pulls a rabbit out of his cap during a wet race.

I'm sorry but Racing Point/Aston Martin were insane to replace Perez with Vettel, you can't blame Ferrari for all Vettel's problems over the past year or so.

I get every driver has a style and every car has characteristics that make it unique. However, the best drivers adapt to the car and hopefully manipulate the car to work for them. It is early days for SV to understand the car. At the same time, he needs to change his driving style. To expect a car to behave like his past title winning RBRs is a fallacy and be his downfall.
