Rosberg: “Poor Vettel was like Barrichello”
World Champion of the Season 2016 Nico Rosberg is convinced that Sebastian Vettel is not too pleased with the fact that he had to help his team-mate Charles Leclerc in the Belgian GP race. Rosberg even compared his compatriot after the race with Rubens Barrichell, who was Michael Schumacher's assistant for many years at Ferrari.
Vettel, who finished fourth at Spa Francorchamps, had to leave his teammate's place on the track boxing order and then keep Lewis Hamilton behind for a few laps.
Rosberg is convinced that Vettel will not be pleased with this role in the team for a long time.
“Poor Vettel. In the Spa race, he looked like Barrichello, working to win his team mate, which is impressive for a four-time world champion. We'll see how that works out, but I'm sure Sebastian won't be happy with that role for a long time. It is evident that he is having problems with this year's car, which obviously suits Leclerc much more. “
