F1: Experts See Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Vettel as 2017 Champion
Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko sees his prodigy Sebastian Vettel to win a 5th world championship in Y 2017.
Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Sebastian Vettel leads MercedesAMG’s Lewis Hamilton by 14 points at the Summer break and has led the championship all season, the 1st time he has done so since winning a 4th straigh title with Red Bull Racing in Y 2013.
Mr. Vettel left Red Bull left for Ferrari in Y 2015, and he is by far the most successful product of the Red Bull driver program overseen by Mr. Marko since the late 1990’s.
Mr. Marko is convinced Mr. Vettel will continue his good form when the season resumes at the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa at the end of August.
“I believe in Vettel, because I know his mental strength, and Ferrari has raised its game,” Marko told the official F1 website. “Silverstone, I would say, was an exception – Ferrari was clearly the stronger car in the first half of the season and only due to various circumstances could they not materialize all their chances.
Red Bull Racing team boss Christian Horner has recently highlighted Mr. Vettel’s mental strength as a reason he should be considered the favorite for the Y 2017 drivers’ title. Mr. Marko is certain those same qualities will be Key to how the championship unfolds from here.
When asked if he ever clashed with Mr. Vettel while he was at Red Bull, Mr. Marko replied: “No, never. But what is fact is that we have been 60 points behind before the Summer break – and still won the title with him!
“Seb will use this summer break to come back even stronger. That is how I know him.”
