First of all, please have a look at the video:
Sebastian Vettel - a well-known driver! An overview on the past year caused The Castiron to award such a title to this driver; it is just a personal and unofficial choice. And: this is really not ironically, no malicious joy!
Vettel started his home race, the F1 German Grand Prix, as the leader of the current Formula One World Championship. He was leading the race most of the time - a difficult one, dry and wet conditions. After the middle of the race, once more he faced the challenge of the „Sachskurve“, one of the slowest curves in Hockenheim.
Up to that date, Vettel could not win this race, his home race. Though, before the curve is the braking phase, sometimes quite tricky and rather erratic in wet weather. And you know, what happened. Due to a braking mistake, Vettel slid out and damaged his Ferrari - did not finish his home race.
The human dimension is today’s focus – therefore, the topic driver of the year from a different point of view; human dimensions, such as the pressure of the leader of the current championship and the great expectations on the occasion of the home race.
As it has been said by Vettel’s major opponent, Lewis Hamilton, also racing drivers are human beings who make mistakes - at least one in every race - and want to give 100 percent, neither 101 nor 99; the media should deal with Sebastian Vettel more respectfully.
Next week: The curse of the home race.
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
