Current Sebastian Vettel

Lots of threads have alluded to having a discussion about the current world champion so lets get it all off our collective chests (oooeer!)

Lots has been has been written about this young man from his testing debut with BMW Sauber in 2006 aged just 19 - he then progressed to the the toro rosso team for his first full race season in 2008 - the memorable race being his drive in the wet at Fuji where he managed to rear end his future team mate Mark Webber who said ""It's kids isn't it... kids with not enough experience – they do a good job and then they :censored: **** it all up." - Little was Mark to know he would be paired with the "Kid" just 2 years later.

His maiden win came at the 2008 Italian GP where he qualified up from, the race started under the safety car in the rain and the young German led from start to finish in the Toro Rosso - becoming the youngest winner of a grand prix ever.

Then we enter the era of the Red Bull. In 2009 he joined the Red Bull team, which got off to a torrid start as he managed to crash into Kubika in Australia, a feat he would go on to repeat during the 09 season.

Last year needs no mention........

So to the crux of the matter. Is Sebastian Vettel?

the real deal, the baby schumi, the new pretender - a genuine racer? - aka Wunderkind

or

A very quick driver, who lucked into a very fast car and can bang it on pole and lead from lights to flag and be the quickest pilot of a car, yet can't overtake for toffee? aka WunOrAother

I wonder if anyone has asked Vettel "Are you No 2 at Ferrari?"

Now what are you going to do to prove you are No 1 at Aston Martin next year over the owner's son ?

I wonder if anyone at Ferrari is asking about whether they want to substitute another driver in the place of Vettel for the rest of the season...

Mick Schumacher?

It would be terrible for Schumacher’s career, unless he really hit the ground running...

In this case I don't believe it's true.

Vettel is just slower than Leclerc and he's having a hard time accepting that.
that was the start of the feud. last yr in Bahrain when he wiped the floor with him maybe in the same way as Hamilton v Alonso in 2007. how dare this rookie / new guy have the nerve to beat me a multiple world champion.

but ive said before he not been signed for his talent next yr but his stature. but if he thinks theres pressure this yr. just wait til 2021 now thats pressure. because he has to be proof this yr was a blip

While I have never been a big fan of Vettel, I have respected his speed in F1 in a car he likes.

I'm sure there are many people have seen this video, of Vettel defending from Hamilton in 2005 in F3, what I want to know is where is this Vettel now?
