I know they're all a bit weird and we have to cut them some slack, but did you watch the video? What do you think? I think that is the real Sebastian Vettel.
I agree. The real Sebastian Vettel is honest, forceful, competitive and mature. In that video I see all those four qualities. Perhaps you view arguing over tyre choice as a small matter, but to the driver whose championship and, more than that, life depends on those tyres, I think he had every right to get his point across.
I shall also list why I chose my drivers because I am really bored. Sebastian
Genuine. That is the word Kimi Raikkonen, David Coulthard, Jake Humphrey and Adrian Newey used to describe him. I can't think of any higher praise (especially in these shark-infested F1 waters
It is really for the the entertainment factor. For all that he doesn't talk much, Kimi has always entertained me - on-track and especially
off-track. I like that.Felipe
Such a loyal servant to Ferrari, and a real passionate racer. But most of all, so dignified even in defeat.Nico Hulkenberg
He is really grounded - makes no bones about his competitiveness but is always respectful of others. He also seems less involved in the political bull that goes around the paddock *coughAlonsocough*.Nico Rosberg
It is really because of his support for Bayern Munich. Other than that, he seems a nice guy and quite entertaining in interviews. But his tweets on Bayern
His "smile, what's the use of crying" personality makes me want to root for him regardless of all the incidents he has had in the past. I just want him to come good.Pastor Maldonado
He is such a character
. Just like my support for Mario Balotelli and Diego Maradona, this guy's talent combined with utter ridiculousness makes me want to watch him every race.Ferrari
It started with Ferrari so, regardless of current management or their drivers, I will always have a soft spot for Ferrari. I just miss Jean Todt's version of it.Lotus GP
It is remarkably strange but even as I supported Ferrari, in 2005 and 2006 I was cheering for Renault (it may have something to do with my dislike for Schumacher and my then support for Alonso). And though they are now rebranded, the Enstone team is still as endearing as ever.Red Bull
How can you not like a team that has the Red Bull spy in it? Really. Other than that, their service has always been prompt and helpful when I ordered online, they constantly reach out to fans (I have had my tweets replied as well), and they have the best team racing podcast. Just saying.Toro Rosso
I don't really know why - because they were formerly Minardi? because they gave Sebastian his first win? because they are the Italian B-team? - but I just like them. Sauber
Nico Hulkenburg is driving there. Plus they gave Kimi, Felipe, Sebastian and Kamui their debuts.Marussia
Just like their name. Rolls off the tongue.
