Ralf Schumacher addressed Martin Brundle’s snub of Sebastian Vettel from his top five list, and said the pundit should look at his own racing years first.
Brundle recently made a list of the top five drivers in F1 today. He included the usual suspects, but failed to list Vettel. The Aston Martin driver is a four-time world champion, but he failed to make the cut.
The list in itself created some debate, but the former Red Bull and Ferrari driver’s exclusion was not well-received. The Sky pundit received criticism for his choice, including a round from Michael Schumacher’s relative.
Ralf addressed Brundle’s snub of Vettel from his top five list, and said that he should look at himself before talking nonsense.
“I think Brundle should look at his own career,” he said, as quoted by grandpx.news.
“I don’t think Vettel or Aston Martin were ever viewed very positively in Britain anyway.”
However, Ralf criticised the German on one thing, and that was his activism.
“He has to be clear about what he wants,” he added.
“He has and supports a lot of projects, such as the topic of environmental protection. I think that’s great, but the focus has to be on what he really wants – or he has to leave it alone.”
Bros before nos
Vettel’s brother Fabian also jumped to his defence, and suggested Brundle was wrong .
“Obviously the car is not a Red Bull or a Mercedes – that’s not a secret,” he said
“I wouldn’t say that Sebastian is no longer in the top five. I don’t think anything has gotten worse for him like that. There are just now other tasks that challenge him.”
