Ferrari Formula One driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany attends a news conference before the Australia Formula One Grand Prix
Ferrari’s new recruit Sebastian Vettel has says that the Honda’s opinion to rejoin F1, a season following new engine policy were introduction was a “very brave” move.

The Japanese Automotive gain only providing McLaren with its new engine unit in this season, but they are still struggling with many issues, season opening race at Australia Kevin Magnussen forced to retire following engine problem and also his team-mate Jenson Button finished 11th and was the only driver not to take a point in the race.

“Obviously it was strange to see people struggling to do the laps to the grid but I think it’s difficult. I think it shows how complex it really is, how difficult it is to master the challenge of making the car reliable for a grand prix and for the entire season. said Vettel, who was speaking after finishing third on his Ferrari debut.

“But also it’s great to see that this year we have a new competitor in the game with Honda. I think they have been very brave to face that challenge, even though now the price they are paying is very high, but I’m sure they will come back.

“I think everyone has, more or less, been through that process with the exception of [Mercedes] last year, so it seems to be part of the game but for sure it’s not great for the people. They want to see the cars and if the cars break before even starting the race that’s not right but what can I say? It’s a difficult challenge; it is complicated, maybe got a bit too complicated but for now it is what it is.”
