Sebastian Vettel says when you’ve won “more than any other guy”, as Lewis Hamilton has, you can’t be excited about finishing “8th, or 12th, or 13th”.

With the predicament Mercedes finds itself in, in 2022, some observers have speculated that George Russell seems to be more motivated and upbeat than Lewis Hamilton, in light of the team’s current problems.

Four-time Formula 1 champion Sebastian Vettel explains it’s completely normal for Lewis to not be as excited as George in this situation.

“When you get to know the sport in the way I have done and Lewis has done, winning and being at the top is what you strive for,” the German said.

“Does it excite you to finish 8th, or 12th, or 13th? No, it doesn’t, when you know you have been first so many times – and in Lewis’ case more than any other guy.

“George comes in. He spent three years at Williams suffering at the rear of the field, scoring the odd point, and then suddenly he is 8th or 12th and life for him is amazing.

“Everybody is different, but you need to be fair from the outside and say, look, is Lewis naturally going to be as fired up about finishing eighth as George probably is?

“No, and I would be surprised if he was,” Vettel concluded.
