THE Formula 1 world is in a spot of turmoil after Honda advised it would not supply more engines after the 2021 season.
The company said it needed to terminate its F1 project to focus corporate resources on research and development in the inexorable automotive advances, among them fuel cell vehicle (FCV) and battery EV (BEV) technologies, which it said “will be the core of carbon-free technologies”.
“I think Vettel is an obviously outstanding talent, four-time world champion. But I think Daniel is a bigger personality,” he said.
“Actually, if you’re gonna compare the two, one has four world championships. The other has seven Grand Prix wins. I think there’s more runway left in Daniel and he’s a great personality,” the American said.
“And I think he’ll fit really well with Lando [Norris] and within our team. So, with all due respect to Seb, Daniel would be selected before Seb, which is exactly what we did.”
