Vettel: Mercedes has been very, very competitive

Sebastian-Vettel-and-Nico-Rosberg-Montreal-ci_2957258After the Lewis Hamilton’s Hungarian Grand Prix victory, championship leader Sebastian Vettel says that Mercedes is very, very competitive and they showed real speed at Budapest.

Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel is 38 points ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and 39 ahead of Alonso. But Lewis Hamilton is expected by many to emerge as Vettel’s direct challenger.

“Mercedes has been very, very competitive, not just Lewis. Also Nico (Rosberg), who won two races,” Vettel said.

“We know that they’re very quick in qualifying. Hungary, in a way, for the first time they had the ability to show their speed in the race as well.”

“Surely the last couple of races they were most competitive,” said Vettel, who still considers Alonso and Raikkonen a threat.

“Lotus have always been there scoring points with Kimi. Ferrari has a bit of a lull at the moment, still they’ve got good points,” he said.

“All of these teams and these drivers you have to keep them in mind. For us it’s not that important to pick one particular driver.”
