F1 » JYS: Vettel no F1 great


Sir Jackie Stewart believes that Sebastian Vettel needs to prove himself away from Adrian Newey-designed cars before he can be called an F1 'great', but suggests the German would be mad to go to Ferrari just now....

Self opiniated little prat. Any respect I had for him as a driver has long gone. Shut your pie hole Stewart and piss off back to the retirement home. Your sell by date expired long ago.

Ok... Lets put it into perspective. In F1 70% to 80% is the car & 20% to 30% id the driver. Mark Webber wasn't competitive until he was driving Newey's car. Although Vettel is talented, the car is the true star here. Let's not forget the Brawn cars. I hardly think Barichelo & Button as F1 greats, but they dominated that year. Give the RB to any of the top 10 drivers & they would be as successful. Raikkonen, Alonso, & Hamilton strike me as better drivers, since they have inferior cars this year. You want a sport that lends more to driver's skill & not the equipment... Try MotoGP!!!

Vettel has the fastest car just like Schumacher had at Ferrari , he is consistently at the front in every race so he is doing exactly what is expected of one of the greats. That he is lucky to be in the right car at the right time shouldn't demean his driving ability and the mindset to get the best out of the car.

All this c..p about Vettel being too young to be great, having to change team to show how good he is is just c..p. He has consistently shown Webber to be a No 2 with his race craft, speed and consistancy. JYS has no room to talk as he achieved his greatness with the Tyrrell Team or is he too old to remember? Senna did the same with Maclaren.

Vettel is simply outstanding in a car and a nice guy out of it. I believe that he has the skills and the temperament to outperform Shumacher. Viva Vettel!
