Vettel reacts like a child – Jacques Villeneuve

Published

on

Former F1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve believes that double time youngest world champion Sebastian Vettel “reacts like a child”.

1997 world champion Villeneuve greatly says that Fernando Alonso is the best driver of the field and Vettel is super quick but there is a difference with Alonso that emerges in case of an unfavorable situation. The German is leading drivers’ championship and ten points ahead of Spaniard.

“I have no doubts: Fernando Alonso is the best, that’s why I root for him,” Villeneuve told Autosprint magazine.

“Seb [Vettel] is super quick, but there is a difference with Fernando[ Alonso] that emerges in case of an unfavorable situation. Alonso remains calm, cool, and rational, while Vettel most times gets upset, angry, screams and flicks the middle finger. He reacts like a child.

Villeneuve added, “These behaviors indicate two different states of maturity but, let’s be clear, Sebastian is an ace too; however, he struggles more in critical situations. He looks almost unbeatable when he leads, but if he needs to catch up he becomes vulnerable.”

The Canadian former champion also played down the championship leader Vettel’s remarkable performance at Yas Marina in last race weekend. Also he praised Red Bull’s technical boss Adrian Newey skill.

“For me, it has confirmed what I think about Vettel,” Villeneuve said

“These are facts: while recovering from the back, he first got in contact with Senna who was ahead of him and damaged his front wing. Then he lost control of his car and crashed under the safety car. A very serious error that had light consequences. As for the rest, he has shown to be super quick, but he was lucky and I’m not changing my mind: Alonso deserves the 2012 title more.”

“Many just draw him as a genius, while that’s just a part of his immense power of team leader,” he said.

“He isn’t a know-it-all who creates a winning car and pretends that anyone wins with it. In truth he is perhaps the humblest technician, the one that listens more to his drivers. The years and wins gone by haven’t changed him: he never pontificates, he holds talks.”
