F1 » Vettel: Ricciardo test as tough as Webber

Sebastian Vettel doesn't feel that Daniel Ricciardo is giving him any more of a hard time than his previous Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber

Danny Ric is bloody good, as I've said since he did the young driver test in 2010 for RedBull, but I honestly think that Webber would also be beating Vettel at the moment.

Webber always had the upper hand on Vettel whenever the car changed - especially when they lost the EBD. Webber was always better with a looser rear end.

I've no doubt Vettel will get it together and start to really challenge Dan, but I just feel that Mark left a year too early. He'd be giving Vettel a touch up right now if he stayed.

George Zaidan: looks like someone disagrees with the statement that 'It ain't over 'till the fat lady sings'.
How about, It ain't over 'till the we see Lewis' melt down'.

That's a bit ambiguous, which meltdown of the next 10 are you referring to?

richard: litemike. did you also predict that vettel would suffer from continual mechanical / electrical problems too?

Oh please Richard you are still banging on about this...don't remember you shedding tears over Mark with all his gremlins..

Why does everyone think Ricciardo is in perfect harmony with his car and sebastian has an undrivable car? I think mechanical issues aside Ricciardo is just doing a better job. I mean he has had 3 races results coprimised through no fault of his own (Australia, malaysia and bahrain (qualified 3rd dropped to 13th for a team pitstop error in sepang and raced his way back to 4th). Hope he can keep improving along with the car.

kiwibob: Im not a vettle fan but know he is still one of the best out on track and will be a force again when he gets the car sorted to what he needs . And for people to think the likes of him and hamilton are not that good no one wins a lucky wc it takes a full season of racing to get the points to win

C'Mom RGT,

You cant compare SV & LH like this, its ridiculous........How many "lucky F1 WDC" has SV had.

IE None to LH's 1.
