Critics of faultless Vettel are incompetent declares Pirro
4 December, 2013
Sebastian Vettel’s exploits over the past four years, and particularly this year have impressed former F1 driver and five time Le Mans winner Emanuele Pirro who scoffed at suggestions that the Red Bull driver was not worthy of his crowns.
Speaking in Bahrain, during the occasion of the WEC finale, Pirro slammed Vettel’s detractors, “I think they are incompetent with all respect. The performance by Vettel in the last four years, and the rate of improvement has been outstanding.”
Of the 13 wins in 2013, of which nine were back-to-back, Pirro said, “I really think that no one could do what he did this year. I feel sorry for him that some people do not rate his performance and give him the credit which he deserves.”
“He has done faultless races, he has performed amazing qualifying laps, he has been unbelievable in early stages of races, brilliant tyre preservation. Things nobody could do, so I question the competence of anyone who thinks that the championship was won by Red Bull and not by Vettel,” concluded the 41 year old Italian who raced for Benetton and Scuderia Italia in Formula 1 between 1989 and 1991.
