Vettel laments F1 changes

Sebastian Vettel has once again criticised the 'new' Formula One era, saying the sport has lost the essence of what made it popular before.


Speaking to German publication Focus, the four-time Drivers' Championship winner said that he doesn't have the same level of confidence in this season's cars.

"We are a sport that is famous for being loud and dangerous," the Red Bull driver told Focus.

"Compared to last season, this impression has diminished an awful lot.

"We run the risk of losing the essence of motor sports.

"I would prefer a V10 or V12 with 1000 horse power - lots of power.

"I would like to drive cars that are as fast as they can be - I need to feel as though I am taming a dragon or a beast.

"The car does not know what I want, under braking and in the corners I have an absolute lack of confidence."

Look who is back in the McLaren garage...
