Vettel: I'm glad that by holding Hamilton, I helped Leclerc to victory
Sebastian Vettel, who finished fourth in the French GP at the Spa Francorchamps, was pleased after all that he was able to contribute to his teammate Charles Leclerc's first victory.
After stopping in boxing, the German took the lead in the race and then left the city to a faster teammate. Below, Vettel kept Lewis Hamilton behind for a few laps, allowing Leclerc to gain a few seconds of advantage.
Despite the fact that he was left without a podium, Vettel was pleased to be able to help the team to a prestigious victory in Belgium.
“I am happy for Charles and the team, and at the same time I am pleased that by holding Hamilton, I was able to help Charles to victory. Of course, I'm not happy with my result, but my tires were not in the best condition and all I could do was help the team. ”
