October 31, 2020 10:10 pm

Sebastian Vettel is the most humble German ever spotted. Honestly, the driver endures through the worst time of his career. However, he does not blame anyone for his downfall. Though many have pointed a finger at the Italians, the German takes the blame on himself.

Sebastian Vettel has proved repeatedly that he will always be the champion he once was. In between, he had vent a lot of frustration with the team and his car. Yet, ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix this weekend, Vettel took the entire blame of underperforming on himself.

I don’t think it’s down to the way the car is handling, I think you always have to adapt. I think that’s true in go karts all the way to Formula 1, and it’s something that normally has never been a problem.”

“But clearly, as I said, I’m missing something this year and I’m trying everything I can to get on top of it,” confessed the four-time world champion.

Ferrari SF1000s is not just troubling the German but also the Monagasgue on the team. Even though we have seen Charles faring way ahead of his teammate, his cry for dying power was also very prominent. However, as Charles knows this car better than Sebastian Vettel, he was able to pull.

So far in my racing life, I’ve always been able to extract the maximum. This year seems a bit different but there’s no other choice than working on myself and working on the car.said the Ferrari no. 5.

Just like any time throughout my career, I’m [trying] to do everything I can to go as fast as I can. But currently, obviously, I’m not able to get the same out of the car as Charles is.

“So obviously, I’m looking forward, with the engineers, to try and understand and work on it, and continue to work on it.” concluded the German.

Sebastian Vettel will soon overcome this rough patch in his career. However, for now, he will give all he has to understand his car. It is disheartening to see a player who used to name his cars losing races because of the same.

However, Vettel and Ferrari get bitter each day and it is better to end this as soon as possible. Both parties need to turn over a new leaf and carry on ahead.
