Sebastian Vettel Says F1 Is A ‘Mess!’ Is the Four-Time World Champion On Point?

Verstappen’s just done it. Valtteri did it twice already, and Hamilton has been doing it habitually so.

But what can you say about Sebastian Vettel?

He is yet to win a race this year. The last that he won was actually back in August 2018.
If you do the math then it’s 17 races ago.
Although since then, his arch-rival, also the leading scorer for the current season- Lewis Hamilton- has gone on to win 12 Grands Prix. And now, just days after his 32nd birth anniversary, Sebastian Vettel has shared that F1 is a mess.

Do you agree with the observation made by Sebastian Vettel?

While one can’t say that the thoughts shared by the former four-time world champion are absolutely off the mark, what one can certainly say is that the way they are right now, Ferrari surely seem to be in a bit of a mess.
In a season where anything they would’ve thought could go wrong, did actually go wrong- including Vettel copping up a penalty, the heart-breaking engine trouble for Leclerc in Bahrain, and the qualifying mishaps such as the one seen at Austria- one’s not sure what to make of their 2019 season.
With 9 races done and 12 more to go, one’s not sure when’s Sebastian Vettel going to win a race. In fact, what’s even worse is that one’s also not sure when Charles Leclerc, who’s thus far collected 3 podiums, one in every three races, might clinch a victory.
Amid these impossible to imagine times, where Mercedes are grinding their opposition into dust, the die-hard racing fan has been compelled to ask- is there anything every prancing about the famous Italian horse?
Amid widespread speculation concerning his imminent F1 future, Sebastian Vettel, who offered some sense finally to a gathering storm that suggested that he may just wither away into the unknown starting 2020, one’s seen a rather strange remark from the 32-year-old.

Here’s what you ought to know.

“I think the problem is now we have so many rules trying to put in writing what you can’t put in writing,” he said.
“It’s just a bit of a mess, I can’t think of any other sport where case by case, things are exactly the same.
“Things are always a bit different. And in our sport, it’s difficult to put everything and every possible outcome in writing. We need to simplify and give freedom to race each other.”
Now that told, one may not exactly take offense to the idea that F1’s become a bit restrictive especially when compared to the past eras where drivers contested with a lot more freedom and the stewards didn’t always intervene in wheel-to-wheel racing.
But what one may support with reasonable confidence is that Sebastian Vettel, someone with 52 race wins against his name, will have to come up with a lot more sense of responsibility if he’s to help the Scuderia stable to finally put up a fight to Mercedes.

The turning around, going off racing limits and spinning may not really be a useful ally in that direction. Isn’t it right, Seb?
