Legendary Formula One commentator Murray Walker said Sebastian Vettel took pity on him because, in his opinion, the German was not credited with the necessary credit for his success.
Vettel has won the last five races, and in the next race in India he can also win the fourth consecutive world title next weekend. But the Red Bull racer has been booed several times due to his dominance on the podium, which Walker does not find fair.
“Vettel took pity on me,” Walker said. “Because of a good race car, he is not credited with success. Less educated spectators claim that anyone would succeed in such a race car, but Webber fails to do so, and he is a very good racer. Vettel is one of the greatest racers of all time. ”
The biggest reason for the unpopularity among spectators is said to be the complication around the “multi 21” command in Malaysia, where Vettel ignored orders from the team and overtook teammate Webber and claimed victory. But Walker believes the events at the Sepang race only underscored the German’s desire for success.
“I think it was a very unsportsmanlike move, which I can understand. It is one thing to judge what is right and what is not, when you are sitting behind a TV screen, when you are sitting in a car and when adrenaline is flowing through your veins, it is completely different. Real superstars boast a ruthlessness that makes them capable of things that ordinary people don’t approve of, ”Walker explained.
