Re: Is Vettel at Aston Martin starting to look like Mansell at Mclaren in 95?

He didn’t do anything wrong on Sunday that I saw. With others spinning off, Vettel kept it on the road despite having a reputation for that. Did he get any points along with his stop/go penalty? After 5 in one weekend in a 23 race season he really needs a clean season now. It’s a shame Vettel got a...

I think more than anything today was a nice reminder that, despite all of their skill, F1 drivers are not machines. Season averages are averages for a reason; no one produces their peak effort at every attempt, and there is actually a sizable variation from weekend to weekend in driver form.
