Vettel hates `dominance` term despite current `era of success`
Washington – Red Bull star Sebastian Vettel, who claimed seven straight successive race victories last weekend, has said that he does not like the word ‘dominance’ as it makes things sound easy.
With four successive drivers’ titles, Vettel’s win at last weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix brought him level with fellow German Michael Schumacher’s record of seven successive race victories, which was recorded back in 2004.
According to CNN, the German, however, said that he hates the term ‘dominance’ despite his era of success, saying that he had worked in every single individual race and thereby got good results to finish on the podium on days where they should not have.
Vettel further said that a racer needs to make sure that he gets to his 100 percent with a long season, adding that it is possible to get very close to achieving that high, even if one cannot do that each time.
The report mentioned that Vettel van match Alberto Ascari’s record of nine in a row set in 1952-53 and Schumacher’s 2004 feat of 13 in one season with two races left on the calendar, adding that such success would cap another phenomenal season for Vettel, who is hoping to improve on his 37 career wins by triumphing in the US and Brazil.
Vettel further said that for him, every race and every year is a new challenge, although he added that he is not lacking in motivation because he knows how hard it is to deliver.
