Vettel: Huge difference current F1 dominance and Schumacher era



575648_642521485778483_1805286688_nChampionship leader Sebastian Vettel does not believe that his current F1 dominance not compared with Michael Schumacher era.

The German possibly will lock his fourth world title in Japan in this weekend, if nearest title competitor Fernando Alonso finishes ninth or lower.

“I think there was probably one race that was an exception, and that was Singapore,” Vettel told to reporters at Suzuka paddock on Thursday.

“The gap we built up, it was two seconds [a lap] quicker than the cars behind, but that depended on who was behind.

“In Korea, which is more similar to Spa, that gap was around three and six seconds for the whole race. With Schumacher, it was more like 30 seconds, which is a big difference. It is a nice cushion to have when you are three seconds down the road, but one mistake in Korea with a lock up then three seconds is nothing compared to 30.”

Also Vettel respond the Hamilton’s latest comments -“And I appreciate it,” Vettel explained after hearing Hamilton’s latest comments. “I get along well with him lately and it’s nice to see that there is a lot of mutual respect.”
