Former F1 Driver turned media spokesperson, Ralf Schumacher has told Sebastian Vettel to quit his grumbling and align his focus on enjoying his time in Formula 1.
2021 saw Vettel starting his campaign at Bahrain Grand Prix with a blunder. Not only did the German finish in 15th place, he also scored a total of five penalty points on his super license over the entire weekend.
Schumacher says that he is able to empathize with Vettel but he needs to focus on the positives in order to regain his lost mojo.
“He has to accelerate now. The grouchy has to stop that he doesn’t feel the car. Nobody cares, after all we are here in Formula 1 and he also earns a lot of money,” Schumacher told Sport 1.
“He (Vettel) should just sit in the car and have fun, ultimately, Sebastian is an experienced racing driver and a multiple world champion. Life is not a pony farm. Now he has to clean his teammates. The rest will come by itself. Even if the Aston Martin won’t be a winning car this year.
“I understand Sebastian’s frustration. He wanted everything differently and had anything but an easy weekend. Nevertheless, you have to answer the question of why he sometimes misjudges the distance to the person in front.”
Vettel’s struggles have been documented very well as he was unable to bring back his form that made him a four time F1 champion. Also, his decline has has been really prominent since the 2018 Grand Prix.
