Monza (AP) – Sebastian Vettel needs to be rebuilt after reviewing Ferrari team's Formula 1 sports director Ross Brawn.
In this & # 39; difficult time & # 39; "Vettel needs the support of the team to regain the confidence he simply lacks," said Brawn, who was previously instrumental technical director at Benetton and Ferrari instrumental in the seven titles of world champion record Michael Schumacher.
For Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto, approval for Vettel must be a priority along with the further development of the car, Brawn continued in a follow-up report on the Formula 1 homepage. "It's not going to be easy, but it's essentially looking ahead to 2020."
While Vettel only finished 13th at the Italian race in Monza on Sunday and even came out of the classification, he celebrated his stable rival Charles Leclerc to Belgium his second Grand Prix victory in succession.
"The last Ferrari driver to succeed in these two races was Michael (Schumacher) in 1996. Perhaps history repeats itself," said Brawn, referring to Leclerc, who also overtook Vettel in the World Championship standings. "What impresses me most is how quickly he learns how he can improve as a driver and as a person."
