Vettel target win his ‘home race’

July.17 – Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel says one of the objectives a Formula One driver sets himself is to win his ‘home race’ at the Nurburgring, in German GP

The Championship leader Sebastian Vettel has had a great season, he has dropped just 21 points out of a total of 225 as he has continue the win in six race and finished the other three in the runner-up position.

“One of the objectives a Formula One driver sets himself is to win his ‘home race’,” he said. Of course, you always give 100 percent, but at a home race you’re always more motivated, simply because you feel at home.”

Vettel is delight in Formula 1 come back to the Nurburgring, having last raced at the track in 2009.

“This year we’re back at the Nürburgring, which is one of the better and more modern tracks; I particularly like the stretch from the Ford corner to the 180° long right corner in the valley. The Warsteiner corner is tricky, as is the sharp left before that. The best place to overtake is before the NGK chicane – which is a challenging left-right bend.

“It’s possible to overtake on the brakes there, because you come out of the previous corner and have to brake down to 100kph. Hitting the brakes later means you can take the bend first, it sounds easy but it’s not because you have to keep away from the kerbs or the car lifts off and you get overtaken again.

“The Eifel hills are special because the weather can change there as quickly as lightning.”
