British former Formula One racing driver Sir Jackie Stewart said that Scuderia Ferrari German driver Sebastian Vettel is “technically maybe still the best on the grid”, but at the same time added that ” he does not have that clear mind like he used to”.
“There’s no reason Sebastian can’t come back, but it will be very difficult because after a season like that you are more critical of yourself, and what you want to do and what you don’t want to do,” – the triple F1 world champion said, as reported earlier today by told German newspaper Bild. Sebastian Vettel is actually two years younger than his main title rival Lewis Hamilton, but Sir Jackie Stewart thinks the problem could be that the German won his four titles too soon: “Perhaps. He came into F1 at 20 and was a four time champion by 26,” said the Scot – “I like Sebastian very much and he is a very good driver. Very emotional, and technically maybe still the best, but he does not have that clear mind like he used to,” he continued.
However, Sir Jackie Stewart added that Sebastian Vettel has simply made mistakes in 2018: “It’s not possible to keep blaming everyone else. If you fight for a world championship and you see that a move you make could be a problem for you, you don’t necessary try it. You wait for the right moment.” – the three-time Formula One world champion concluded, as reported by German newspaper Bild.
