McLaren boss defends Vettel: He hasn't forgotten how to drive

McLaren Racing Director Andreas Seidl isn't joining the voices of concern about Sebastian Vettel's form, and is convinced the four time Champion will bounce back soon.

McLaren's Andreas Seidl isn't joining in on the wave of criticism and concern at Sebastian Vette's form, after the four time World Champion had a disastrous first race with Aston Martin.

Vettel was knocked out in Q1 and picked up five penalty points in two days due to two on-track incidents, with one of these being a collision with Alpine's Esteban Ocon as the German misjudged his braking into Turn 1.

It appeared to be a continuation of the poor form Vettel showed during his last year with Ferrari, although Seidl isn't joining in with the concerned voices.

“Sebastian has never forgotten how to drive,” Seidl told F1-Insider.

“There is a reason that he is a four-time World Champion. He also had really strong races at Ferrari and he will have them with Aston Martin too. I think we will see great results from Sebastian this year."

Despite the disastrous weekend for Vettel in Bahrain, Seidl said his compatriot shouldn't dwell on how badly it went.

“You have to leave the church in the village," he said. "It was a race weekend now, which didn't go so well - for the team too. As a four-time world champion, I expect him to strike back."

With Seidl not being Vettel's boss, he was asked whether he would be quite so calm about the situation if the German driver's performance had been for McLaren.

“The only thing we can do from the pit wall after a scene like this is reassure drivers and help them concentrate on the essentials," Seidl explained.

"First you have to pass half an hour and let your mind cool down. Then you have to analyse what happened and take steps if necessary."
