Red Bull Racing team Principal Christian Horner says in the main stage at AUTOSPORT International, defending world champion Sebastian Vettel is technically and physically very strong and obviously he has got an enormous amount of natural talent and intelligence
“He is a young man, but one that has achieved so much and he has got a very wise head on young shoulders,” said Horner. “Technically he is very strong, physically he is very strong and obviously he has got an enormous amount of natural talent and intelligence.”
“He is now the one the other drivers are shooting at. It’s a different type of pressure, but he handles it tremendously well and I think in many respects getting that first championship on his CV by winning it so dramatically at the last race, released him”. Horner added.
“I think the exciting thing about Sebastian is that at only 24 years of age, he is still evolving, he is still getting better and I think the best is yet to come from him.”
Media asked whether it was possible for Vettel to match the run of seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, Horner replied: “It’s difficult to look like that because it all depends on the circumstances you are in and the equipment that you have at your disposal.
“But Sebastian can have a very long career ahead of him, he is genuinely passionate about F1, he loves what he is doing and he can be around for a long time to come.”
