Frentzen: The champion will be Sebastian Vettel

Heinz-Harald Frentzen ended his career in Formula 1 back in 2003, but still closely follows the World Cup. In his opinion, the results of the tests in Barcelona suggest that the advantage is now on the side of Ferrari, and Sebastian Vettel has a good chance to win the fifth title.

“While I got the impression that in the Ferrari are ready for the season a little better, and this team really will put pressure on the Mercedes,” said the F1 veteran, who spent 156 Grand Prix. – Tests in Barcelona showed that in Maranello coped better with the task in terms of the changed rules on aerodynamics. Their car was immediately very fast.

As for Mercedes, I heard that the results of the tests the team is not very happy, the problem is that the new machine is prone to understeer. “

Nevertheless, Frentzen believes that in the future Lewis Hamilton can at least repeat the record of Michael Schumacher, who counts seven league titles: “Hamilton has already become a five-time world champion, although he is still quite young. He still has arrows in his quiver. But here everything always depends on the rider – whether he wants to stay in the sport for a long time or is he going to do something else, like Nico Rosberg.

But I expect that Lewis will continue to perform a few more years, and then the Michael record can not resist. If we talk about the upcoming season, the champion will be Sebastian Vettel “.
