Sebastian Vettel reassesses Red Bull chances
It can be difficult to adjust to not winning after you have spent so long doing so but despite this, Sebastian Vettel has called for his team to reassess their current championship prospects following yet more disappointment over the weekend...
The Hungarian Grand Prix was another nail-biting race, however, it marked Red Bull's third race in a row without picking up a win. This has caused the 2010 F1 drivers' champion to take a long, hard look at what his team is doing, and what they could potentially be doing wrong.
Red Bull's fierce rivals, McLaren, picked up more points over the weekend; Jenson Button came in first position, finishing ahead of his teammate Lewis Hamilton, who also expressed regret at his final placement.
Vettel finished in second position in Hungary, yet it appears that second place is clearly not good enough for the young German driver. He currently holds an 83-point lead in the championship and looks in better form than ever to win, following Hamilton's failure to take a podium finish.
"We tried to win, there had been a chance but we didn't use it," said Vettel. "We need to look into that.
"We've seen how quickly things can change so we need to win again."
Not finishing in first position is clearly taking some degree of adjustment from Vettel; he managed to build his current lead in the championship by winning six of the first eight races this season.
"It's fair to say that in the last couple of events Ferrari and McLaren on race pace have made a step forwards," Vettel added. "We need to have a look why.”
Victor Chandler, bet365 and Sporting Bet offer 11/2 odds that Jenson Button will put in a repeat performance to win upcoming Belgian Grand Prix.
