Sebastian Vettel, the four times F1 world champion has won his 46th win in the F1 races as he won the Hungarian GP yesterday. But this win did not come in an easy way as he faced some serious steering issues that he could not concentrate on the race as normal. Whatever, after the race he admitted that his team mate the Finnish, Kimi Raikkonen was sometimes a lot faster than him in the races.
When Vettel was at the grid he somehow could realize that his car steering was not working properly. But he continued to hang on before his fellow Kimi Raikkonen and the other Mercedes cars which were just behind him as he had to hang on because it would ensure his lead ahead of Lewis Hamilton as Hamilton was only 1 point behind of Vettel before starting the race at Hungary. Whatever, Hamilton could only manage to finish the race being at the fourth place and that took the points difference between him and Vettel to 14 points.
Whatever, in-spite of telling the team via the team radio that Kimi was faster than Vettel, through the whole race they kept a safe distance and maintained the distance with care.
After the race Vettel acknowledged that Kimi was a lot faster than him and could easily cross him and could go on to win at the Hungary circuit.
He also believes that the steering problem he had through the race had made him worse at his race.
He said to the media that the game was very difficult. He certainly was not hoping these things in that afternoon. he said that it actually did not feel right at that moment and with time passing by it became worse. But he also said that he tried to adapt to the problematic steering wheel. And when he realized that it could not be changed then he started to try and save the rears.
He said that, they had spoken a little on the radio about the steering problem. The team said to him to avoid the kerbs he said, but in these types of tracks drivers have to use the kerbs. But there were no options left. So he started to avoid the kerbs and that certainly affected his performance throughout the whole race. He also said that in the second stint he wanted to make sure that he could use the tyres for his car and that is why he had to hold back.
Whatever, in the end he went on to win the race and everything went straight and the other lined up behind Vettel. He said that it was matter of luck that these types of tracks do not provide support to overtaking so he said that there was no room for error for him.
At the initial stages Kimi gave some threats to Vettel but eventually he stuck at the second place behind Vettel and finished being second.
Sebastian Vettel came 1st, Kimi becoming 2nd and Valtteri Bottas had become 3rd respectively in Hungary.
