Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel wants to “keep pushing” for the Championship title
Whoever doubted Sebastian Vettel making a comeback this season must still be in a state of shock. Against all odds the young German marched on his RB8 to lead the pack in the Drivers Standings for the first time this season.
Three races, three victories… that’s the record set by Red Bull driver, but can Sebastian Vettel win the Championship title for the third successive season? Well, the momentum is on his side now that he is leading the Championship and has a six-point lead over Ferrari’s second-placed Fernando Alonso.
Things weren’t always this great for Sebastian Vettel this season. It was only after the trip to Europe ended that Sebastian Vettel started to shine. Well, in retrospect the first half of the season was pretty tight.
Nonetheless, an epic showdown between Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel is set to play in the last four races of the season.
Sebastian Vettel is optimistic about winning more races this season, but the young German is also trying to avoid being over-confident.
“For sure better than if I were still behind,” Sebastian Vettel said in respect to leading in the Drivers Standings. “But what I think is important is that we have to keep things simple. That means that we have to concentrate on ourselves - because we cannot influence what others are doing and starting mind games now about what others will do in the next races is a waste of energy.
“Lately we had some pretty good races and, of course, I hope that we will be able to continue in that way. But it is also obvious this season that things can change quite fast, so there is no guarantee that luck will stay on our side. So ‘keep on pushing’ should be our motto for the last four races.”
Sebastian Vettel has been hailing his crew and his car for the incredible results he has been posting lately. Sebastian Vettel believes he is driving the best and most balanced car Red Bull has ever created – the RB8.
The new and improved RB8 showed its power at the Korean Grand Prix, where Sebastian Vettel and his teammate Mark Webber grabbed first and second places respectively. Sebastian Vettel believes that his victories have given his team a psychological edge.
“There are still 100 points to grab, so we have to do our best to stay where we are,” Sebastian Vettel added.
