Sebastian Vettel brought up a brilliant victory for Ferrari at the Canadian GP holding off the stiff challenge from Bottas all through those 70 laps(68 actually).
While the race was special for Vettel and Ferrari, the fans were not very thrilled with the ‘procession’ as the onlookers were treated with next to no overtaking manoeuvres.
Social media was ablaze with comments about how the race was boring and even Hamilton commented on how F1 was going down the wrong road with all the engine restrictions.
Vettel, however shot down all those ‘boring’ comments, as for him this is how racing is. He emphasised on the fact that some races could pan out to be boring for viewers, something that would also happen in this month’s football world cup, where not all games are going to be nail-biters.
“Life’s like this, or racing… racing’s probably like this” Vettel said.
“I don’t think it’s justified to criticise the racing, or criticise this race. I don’t know if it was boring.
“From my point of view, obviously, it’s still busy inside the car no matter where you are but I don’t like… I don’t know why people today are so short-sighted.
“We had seven races this year, I think some were phenomenal, some were boring – but next week the World Cup is starting and I promise you that a lot of the games will not be exciting – but still people will watch it – but some games will be incredible.
“That’s what we always look forward to – but it can’t just always continue to go up and get better.
“So, I don’t know, there’s no reason, don’t even look for an answer, don’t write anything. Write about something else.
“I think we do our job inside the car and if we can race, we race but obviously, we also do our job inside the car and try to avoid racing. Disappear, stay in front, or not get overtaken.
“And then some races are just exciting and others are not.” he concluded.
