Bernie Ecclestone: "People underestimate Sebastian Vettel"

The British tycoon Bernie Ecclestone, ex-executive director of Formula 1, considers that the German pilot Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) is being underestimated, according to what he said in an interview with the magazines' Sport Bild 'and' Auto Bild Motor'.

"Formula 1 needs a Sebastian to win, it has the competitive gene runners had before" , said Ecclestone. "People underestimate Sebastian", added about a driver whose "talent" already eclipsed Ecclestone in 2006.

Ecclestone also described as unjustified doubts about the German driver after the failed start in his fifth season with Ferrari. "He's going to fight and get ahead," the 88-year-old British tycoon predicted.

Vettel is third in the table, 22 points behind Finland's Valtteri Bottas and 21 points behind current world champion Lewis Hamilton, both Mercedes drivers . "There is no reason why, in addition to Lewis, Sebastian also reaches the seven titles of Michael Schumacher" , opinó.

Vettel added between 2010 and 2013 four consecutive wins with the Red Bull team. In 2015 he changed to Ferrari to continue his winning streak, but has not managed to win any title since then.
