Former F1 driver Stefan Johansson has offered a theory on why Sebastian Vettel has struggled since the beginning of F1’s hybrid era in 2014.
Although Vettel won 14 races with Ferrari between 2015 and 2019, his failure to bring the world title back to Maranelllo is singled-out as a painful shortfall for F1’s most successful team.
Furthermore, during his final two seasons with Ferrari, the four-time world champion was but a pale shadow struggling for performance and form alongside teammate Charles Leclerc who had picked up the baton as the team’s future.
Vettel’s inception this season with Aston Martin has so far seen the German continue to linger in the second half of the field, although in his defense, the performance of his car is also falling short of expectations.
Johansson, who raced in F1 for eight seasons, including with Ferrari and McLaren, and who remains a keen observer of F1, believes that Vettel’s struggles are not new and are rooted in the characteristics of F1’s current generation of V6 turbo-hybrid cars.
