Why Vettel's Aston Martin F1 debut was so bad

  • Gepubliceerd op 2 maanden geleden

    THE RACE

    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

Seb has had his time to shine, he just can't cut it with the current cars/regs. Like Alonso, his best is behind him and he needs to move on to make space for some newer drivers in F1.

@GuyVeto what a joke, he overtook the 3rd and 5th fastest cars. Any thoughs? Or is your brain to blocked to fathom that 3rd fastest is better than 7th fastest? No point that you incompetently put stands.

It's really unfortunate to see how Vettel has slowly slid down the order, to the point where he could go an entire race without being mentioned, getting knocked out early in quali and not scoring points. If he's given a car that works for him though, he will use it very effectively (hopefully)

Seb should get a special trophy for most snakebit over the past few years. The guy can't catch a break. Maybe he's lost his edge and just isn't as fast as he used to be as some people claim. But it's really hard to tell with everything else around him always falling apart. I hope he gets a chance to show his good stuff again at some point.

Any performance issues are definitely not Vettel’s fault (so sayeth the Vittel fanboys). Being supposedly one of the best drivers in the world, means you are expected to be able to drive cars with stability problems at least as good as your peers. Something Vittel has never been able to prove. If Vittel gets a car that is stable and exactly suits his driving, his performance will vastly improve? Exactly the same would apply to every other driver…

there is something to be said for drivers who had a car on rails under them finding it hard to work with sub par cars in the future .. (having travelled business class for years, economy class is double the nightmare) but Vettel appears to lack the qualities needed to accept this change and still succeed at the top level ..

To be able to drive fast in an F1 car, the car must be perfectly setup in order for the driver to have no worries that something will goes wrong in a high speed situation. Just imagine Spa flat out first S corner, if the car is not perfectly in tune, you think a driver will have the confidence to take it flat out? Merc clearly has then fastest car and strong team, and RB build their car around Max, but seb still doing fastest lap few times in a half hearted car... Things will only be better for seb, AM just need to get their shit together.

Yes, and look how well *that* has been going for him. No podiums thus far. Vettel won his first race with a Toro Rosso. By merit. The day Perez has a tenth of the race wins and poles Vettel has he can consider himself lucky. Right now he doesn't even have a tenth of Vettel's number of podiums (121) which would be 12 podiums. Red Bull is "Team Verstappen". All focus is on him. This is something you clearly have never considered.

I dont think the 5 points on his licence total that he got were fair at all. These are the same stewards that let Hamilton run wide in a turn and go off track more than 25 times but when Verstappen does it once its "a lasting advantage". No consistency, it seems to be the rules are made to suit what ever is going on at the time.

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.
