Apr.21 (GMM) The case of Sebastian Vettel shows how quickly things can turn around in formula one.
Before Bahrain, the German was the new darling of Ferrari, dubbed 'Per-vettal' by the Italian press while teammate Kimi Raikkonen was once again struggling for results.But on Sunday, it was the Finn who pushed Mercedes hard for victory, while Vettel had an error-strewn race."After three perfect races, Vettel paid a high price for many mistakes," said La Gazzetta dello Sport.Another Italian newspaper, La Stampa, added: "This time Vettel was the number two at Ferrari ... imprecise, nervous, harried".Team boss Maurizio Arrivabene said: "Sebastian made a couple of mistakes, otherwise we could have had two drivers on the podium."But he is - thank god - a human being, as we all are," the Italian insisted.Arrivabene continued: "We live in a world that is far too fleeting. He has won a race and stood on the podium twice, and is part of a team that has done something incredible over the winter."
