Sebastian Vettel spins once again in preparation for the Chinese GP- Watch the Ferrari star once again lose his rear, this time on a simulator
Sebastian Vettel needs to sort things out heading into the Chinese GP, as he hasn’t been able to get on the podium in the first two races.
While Ferrari were the dominant team all through the weekend in Bahrain, on race day everything fell apart, with an engine issue forcing Charles Leclerc to come down from P1 to P3 and Sebastian Vettel once again spinning under pressure to miss out on a podium finish.
Vettel was apologetic about the spin, admitting his mistake and letting his team know that he would do everything possible to ensure such a thing does not happen in the future.
However, before even stepping onto the track in China, Vettel has once agains spun, this time on the simulator. Some Ferrari loyalists have been calling out for Vettel to be sacked by Ferrari and this footage would only fuel their fury.

Vettel will need to ensure that he irons out all mistakes from his driving from here on, as Ferrari have a steep challenge this season and would do good to rack up the points until they have the dominant car on the circuit.
Data from AMuS has revealed that Ferrari have close to a 0.4s advantage on the straights. With China and Baku having two of the longest straights on the F1 calendar, one can assume that Ferrari would be dominant in the next two grand prix. However, the team need to sort out their reliability concerns, or else the highly reliable Mercedes package would once again be handed the victory while not being fastest car on track.
Will Sebastian Vettel be able to bring up his first 2019 race win in China?
