Vettel to beat Hamilton in 2017 F1 – Sir Jackie Stewart

Published

on

Formula 1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart has tipped Sebastian Vettel to win a fifth world championship in 2017.

So far in 2017, the title battle has been a two-team, two-driver scrap between Ferrari’s Vettel and Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes.

Four-time world champion clinch his third victory of the championship last time out in Monaco, beating his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, who starts from pole – as the Ferrari recorded their first 1-2 result in the principality since 2001.

Monaco top podium saw the German take a 25-point lead in the Drivers’ standings over Hamilton

Stewart told Sport Bild: “Sebastian has more experience and is calmer than Lewis.

“It will be difficult for Lewis to turn it around because Vettel is so hungry to succeed again.”

Another former F1 driver, Marc Surer, agreed: “Vettel is someone who is discouraged by a bad car, but when he has a good car, he is incredible.

“Also, with his family-driven lifestyle, he has fewer fluctuations than Hamilton.”

But Vettel says he’s not focused on his fifth title, yet.

“It’s a long way so I’m not really bothered about that, it was more the fact to stand up [on the podium] and see the team. Vettel said

“I think obviously, it’s a small part that we have at the track but thinking of everyone else back in Maranello in the factory.

“We got a lot of hard times last year and this year everything seems to be upside down – but the team is the same, the people are the same so it’s really clear to them.”

“I guess in these small moments you just realise that it’s a special group of people. If things go well, we’ll work hand in hand, we must make sure we keep the momentum up in the next couple of races – but I think we’re just having a great time.” German added
