Sebastian Vettel has defended himself and his Red Bull team by saying they are not as dominant as Michael Schumacher and Ferrari were.
“I think there was probably one race that was pretty much an exception, and that was Singapore.”
“The gap we built up – it was two seconds quicker [per lap] than the cars behind – but that depended on who was behind us. In Korea, which is more similar to Spa, that gap was somewhere between three and six seconds for the whole race. With Schumacher, it was more like 30 seconds, which is a big difference.
“It is a nice cushion to have when you are three seconds down the road, but one stupid mistake in Korea with a lock up, which is very likely, then three seconds is nothing compared to 30.”
