Coulthard: Vettel is just not as good at wheel to wheel as other drivers

Former F1 driver David Coulthard has pinpointed exactly where Sebastian Vettel is going wrong this season. The German has found it tough this season and has been locked in an intriguing battle with his teammate Charles Leclerc, who is ahead by 19 points with one race remaining.

"Vettel has been hanging on the ropes all season. This is a very difficult season for the German with this Charles Leclerc, who joined the team and immediately proved his speed," Coulthard told Channel 4.

 "This is emphasized once more because the Monegask put one pole after the other behind his name and Vettel passed in the championship."

 The German has won just one race in 2019 and was involved in a collision with his teammate in Brazil, which cost both of them their chance of finishing inside the points.
