Pressure on Vettel already immense: 'There are already sharks circling him'

In a new video from Will Buxton, the popular reporter from Formula1.com updates you on the latest news. He also pays attention to F1, where he mainly discusses the situation of Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing.

Sebastian Vettel has already attracted attention. Where he might have hoped to regain some confidence and come close to his old form at Aston Martin, he was immediately met with a mountain of criticism. The German qualified poorly and also made a remarkable mistake in the race, taking Esteban Ocon with him in his crash.

Pressure on Vettel

''Vettel has indicated this week that he does not yet feel completely at home in his new Aston Martin car. He had a difficult weekend, with no fewer than five penalties. Sharks are already circling him wondering if he will ever reach his old level. Some people are already wondering out loud, wrongly in my opinion, if he will make it to the end of the season,'' Buxton said in his video.

Buxton also takes a look at the top of Formula 1. ''At the top, Mercedes indicated this week that Red Bull is the favourite at the moment. The pace that Red Bull had on a track in Bahrain that usually doesn't suit them, of course says how good they were. Especially when you realise that Helmut Marko indicated this week that a problem with the differential cost as much as three tenths per lap,'' Buxton concludes.
