Sebastian Vettel now gears up for his 100th F1 race at United State Grand Prix. If he can finish top place in the inaugural race at Austin, secure his third consecutive F1 drivers title with Red Bull and turn into the youngest triple world champion in F1 history.
Ex Formula 1 speedy Sir Jackie Stewart finished his F1 career at the age of 34, with three world titles and 99 race starts under his belt. But Red Bull speedy touched this journey aged just 25.
Championship leader Sebastian Vettel says that Red Bull have now recovered the technical problems phase. Also they are finished many races without incidents especially following the Singapore Grand Prix.
The German added that his main rival Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and his DNFs or disaster are equal and
Red Bull will do well until the very end to make sure that we deserve the glory.
“Last races we had were very good for us, to put it mildly. They have helped us a lot. If you look at the whole season with 20 races, you do have incidences that you don’t like to have, you probably have some retirements due to technical problems.” Championship leader said through the interview with the official Formula 1 website.
“We had those – and hopefully we have now passed this phase. It is very hard to run so many races without incidents. It is not something that is part of your calculation, but you have to be prepared when it hits you not to stand there with eyes wide open. (laughs) If you look at the races we’ve done so far I think Fernando’s and my DNF’s or calamities are equal.”
German added “I still believe that the driver who deserves it most will be champion. No doubt we are in a very good position now and I hope we do well until the very end to make sure that we deserve the glory.”
