Red Bull Racing’s chief technical officer Adrian Newey thinks that Sebastian Vettel will want to learning from the few errors he made in 2011 despite his leading F1 season.
“I think all I can say is that Seb is a very bright young man who is very determined, very inquisitive and tries to understand everything about both the car and his own performance, and if he makes a mistake, which being human of course he does, then he tries to learn from that,” Newey told Aotisport.
“So he will be analysing very carefully everything he has done this year and trying to improve on that. One example is after Montreal where he was distraught post-race – that he had been beaten, having dominated the whole race, on the last lap.
“Well, we all were to be honest. As a team we all learned a lesson from that, and I kick myself that we didn’t take enough action in critical parts – as we could probably have done a bit more under the red flag, we could have said more about Jenson’s progress in those last few laps. It is those little things that you have to try and learn from.”
Dual time world champion Sebastian Vettel lost first place in Canadian GP on the last lap to main rival McLaren’s Jenson Button.
“There is a huge desire and hunger,” he added. “And that comes, to be perfectly honest – it comes wherever you are. If you are seventh you are aspiring to be higher, and wherever it is. And that is the funny thing about if you are doing well, from my experience, you don’t feel as if you are doing anything differently to when you are not doing well. “
