Formula One Managing Director of Motorsports Ross Brawn is convinced that Scuderia Ferrari and German driver Sebastian Vettel are able to bounce back and keep fighting in order to win the 2017 Formula 1 world championship despite the fact that the Maranello team lost important ground at the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix, due to the unfortunate events which took place at the start of the race last weekend.
Pundits expected a Scuderia Ferrari triumph and a Mercedes defeat at Marina Bay, but circumstances turned it the other way around, with Lewis Hamilton now leading the title fight by a cool 28 points. Formula 1’s sporting manager, who spearheaded Ferrari’s incredible success during the Michael Schumacher era, is not giving up on Sebastian Vettel however and is backing the German driver to recover from his current deficit during the next few races: “The world championship is by no means over. There are still six races to go. Vettel and Ferrari are so strong that they can still win the world cup on their own power.” – Formula One Managing Director of Motorsports said, as reported on Friday by Italian national sports newspaper based in Rome Corriere dello Sport.
Ross Brawn admits the fact that he has a soft spot for Seabstian Vettel and Scuderia Ferrari, saying the pairing reminds him of his good times at Maranello alongside seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher: “It is inevitable that Sebastian and Ferrari remind me of my time at Ferrari.” – he admitted – “Sebastian resembles Michael very much in the way he stands by the team and sees himself as part of the whole. And I recognise the same discipline and focus in bringing Ferrari back to the top. It will remain a tough battle between Lewis and him, but if he does it, he will have earned it.” – the former technical director of Scuderia Ferrari said, as reported by the the Italian media.
