At the same time everything went wrong for Sebastian Vettel. Lewis demonstrates incredible consistency, and it's hard to do from race to race.If you look at the Lewis and Vettel, my ex-partner faster per lap on pure speed. But Sebastian more strong emotionally. At such a high level of competition, even small things play a big role.If something is bothering you, or you put energy into something else, then you might throw back. It happened to Lewis last year when, after a skirmish with the journalist, he continued to fight with the press.It's wasted energy, especially in the decisive phase of the world Cup. Anything can throw your concentration.Now I'm neutral, but, as a fan, what happened in Japan, I did not like. Everyone wanted to see fight for the title until the last race.I'm sure even Lewis likes to fight until the last minute, but that's Motorsport. In any case, Mercedes and Lewis can't sit idly by even in this situation".

But Spa will again be a real track for Mercedes, and Ferrari are unlikely to get the chance.We know that Vettel is sometimes not in control of his emotions. In the past year, we've seen it in Mexico. But this emotion is the force of Sebastian. In the short term it may seem like a weakness, but throughout the season, this feature can actually change the situation.He is always ready to win, and it can't hurt the fight for the title of champion".

Daniel Schlosser was a former physical therapist Nico Rosberg, but now, after the departure of the German in Formula 1, it works with a test pilot with Force India Nikita Mazepin. Daniel believes that the injured hand Robert Kubica should not be an obstacle to return to Formula 1.Daniel Schlosser "he's still very good muscles in his right arm, only the mobility is not much. But everything is in the style of aerobatics. For example, Nico Rosberg always felt a strong tension in their wrists, so he had to train his hands, but the other pilots behave differently with the wheel due to the different techniques of flying.Nick Heidfeld was one of these pilots, as does Kubica. They've never had to train in the same way as others. Instead of pushing to the right, you can pull the lever on the left side. And, depending on the technique, it can be even more effective in the turns.In Hungary he worked a very difficult program at high temperatures that it was difficult for some young drivers. Anyone who can handle it, can spend a whole Grand Prix without any problems".
