Vettel hasn't forgotten how to drive

Max Verstappen may lead Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers' Championship but the Dutchman has suggested the German will bounce back and insisted he "has not forgotten how to drive".

Vettel is fourth in the Drivers' Championship and his season has been plagued by incidents like the penalty in Canada, the spin in Bahrain or last time out at Silverstone where he wiped out Verstappen. With Charles Leclerc growing into his seat at Ferrari Vettel's place in the sport has been under question and many feel he could walk away from the sport.

However, the man he wiped out at Silverstone, praised the four-time World Champion. 

"Seb he is a very intelligent, sensitive and warm person," Verstappen told Auto Bild.

The current Red Bull driver also believes Vettel hasn't forgotten how to drive and suggested the blame lays with Ferrari.

"He has not made mistakes at Red Bull and has not forgotten how to drive.

"Why do these things always happen to Ferrari?"
