Sebastian Vettel has come under some scrutiny after his French GP Turn 1 mistake, where he took out Bottas and ruined the race for both of them.
Vettel had secured P3 in qualification and could have given the front 2 of Mercedes a stiff challenge if not for that lock up on Turn 1.
Vettel had committed a similar lock up mistake in Baku too where he tried to go a little too hard whilst trying to overtake Bottas.
However, Vettel is not too concerned about all the criticism and is focussed on the job at hand.
“I’m not worried. I don’t think there’s something fundamentally wrong.”
“I think it’s racing. There’s some errors that you shouldn’t do, some errors that happen – it depends on the type of error. I’ve had a lot of races, it happens – unfortunately it can, but I try to minimise it.” he added.
Vettel has emphasised on the fact that he won’t be changing his racing style and attitude in any way, as in order to win championships, one needs to push the limits.
“It’s a long way and I think it’s normal that some things happen along the way,” said Vettel.
“Obviously you’re also trying to push the limits. It didn’t cross my mind when I was in Baku to just stay behind, surrender and let the other person past and collect some points. That’s not how I define racing. Sometimes it works out and it’s great, sometimes it doesn’t.
“At the end of the year, you try to get everything right and not everything wrong. That’s natural. We’ll see where we end up. We have a strong package, some races very strong.” he added.
