      He's the Team Principal of a top F1 team and he's married to a Ginger Spice.

      I can't hate on any of that.

      It is getting harder and harder for fans of Sebastian Vettel to watch him every race weekend. The narrative has remained stagnant over this season.

      Offering his assessment on Vettel’s performance was 2016 F1 champion, Nico Rosberg. He is quoted as saying, “He jumped the start and got lucky he didn’t get penalised, he spun twice this weekend on his own.

      He’s a half a second a lap off the pace [compared to Leclerc] – it really doesn’t get much worse than that.

      And everyone – even himself – are clueless [to why]. He’s a four-time world champion in his prime.”

      Is he Nico? One might argue that he hasn't been "in his prime" for a season and a half now, maybe longer.

      Nico is right in assumption that Vettel should be in his prime in years of life, you're right about true form though, he isn't in his prime now and hasn't been in awhile.

      An article from 2019 about Vettel struggling reads as if it were yesterday. Tell me if it sounds familiar:

      In Italy, Vettel finished out of the points and
      a lap down
      . He committed an unforced
      error early in the race, spinning at the
      Ascari curve while running fourth and
      chasing the two Mercedes
      . It was just one
      of a string of similar spins and incidents in a
      poor run of form dating back to his home
      Grand Prix last year at Hockenheim, when
      he crashed out ofthe lead, ultimately
      handing the momentum in the 2018 title
      race to Lewis Hamilton.


      Theories on the 32-year-old's poor form
      abound, but perhaps Nico Rosberg put it
      best on Sky Sports FI when he said: "Vettel
      is unexplainable for me I can't explain it.
      He is a a four-time world champion, he is
      one of the best guys out there. And to make
      a mistake like that, on your own,just
      spinning the car like that in a corner, is so
      strange."

      Good drivers push the development of the car. Nico and Lewis were the key contributors to chassis development direction at Mercedesand helped propel the program to new heights.

      Haas/Dallara, as any team, would be better off spending the money to get better drivers to help move the project.

      A neat example of this effect came to light at Racing Point. They made a jump in chassis set up due to Hulkenberg's two stints in the car:

      Hulkenberg gave his views on the RP20 when he drove Sergio Perez’s car at the British and 70th Anniversary GP weekends in August.

      That in turn fed into the team’s development programme, the fruits of which have been seen in recent races as a new package came on stream.

      Some of the developments that we put on the car were as a direct result of his feedback in Silverstone,” said Green when asked by Motorsport.com. “Which was really interesting. So his feedback after the race today was very intriguing.

      He mentioned things [at Silverstone] that he would like to be changed in the car, and how we go about setting the car up and the feel he gets from the car.

      And we made those changes after Silverstone not expecting him ever to get back in the car again and drive it. But lo and behold, he does, and we get the feedback about the developments we made on the car. So that was really interesting, and really important.”

      Green said that Hulkenberg was able to confirm that the team had made the correct choices.

      "Yes, effectively. Still work to do. But I think we made a good step in the right direction. That is all part of the rear suspension and front suspension changes that we made, which were as a direct result of him driving the car in Silverstone."

      Ultimately, it seems like a great idea. Once you get demoted from any job, you should be looking for an out, and Renault would be a perfect landing spot. There’s the small issue of no seats being available until 2022...

      Looking forward to Sunday. I took the morning off from my usual zoom church producing so I can sit with my coffee and just enjoy the race live and uninterrupted.

      The turbo lag on that is going to kill VER on starts.
