Vettel unhappy with 'short-sighted' F1 fans


Sebastian Vettel isn't pleased with the criticism directed towards Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix, labeled as "boring" by the fan community and many members of the media.

After clinching his 50th career win, the Ferrari driver spoke of his proudness of delivering to the Scuderia another win, regardless of the circumstances, on the day Jacques Villeneuve commemorated his father's maiden Grand Prix triumph with Ferrari.

But he later took issue with the fact that the only thing people appeared inclined to remember about the day was the race's boring procession.

"Life’s like this, or racing… racing’s probably like this," said the German.

"I don’t think it’s justified to criticise the racing, or criticise this race. I don’t know if it was boring.

"From my point of view, obviously, it’s still busy inside the car no matter where you are but I don’t like… I don’t know why people today are so short-sighted."

Vettel drew an analogy with football, citing next week's start of the World Cup where he doubted every single game would result in a thrilling battle on the pitch.

"We had seven races this year, I think some were phenomenal, some were boring – but next week the World Cup is starting and I promise you that a lot of the games will not be exciting – but still people will watch it – but some games will be incredible," he said.

"That’s what we always look forward to – but it can’t just always continue to go up and get better.

"So, I don’t know, there’s no reason, don’t even look for an answer, don’t write anything. Write about something else.

“I think we do our job inside the car and if we can race, we race but obviously, we also do our job inside the car and try to avoid racing. Disappear, stay in front, or not get overtaken," he added.

"And then some races are just exciting and others are not."
