Sebastian Vettel: Ferrari driver says Mercedes' success is boring

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel says Mercedes consistent success in Formula 1 is “boring”.

The world champions have taken one-two finishes in the first four races of 2019 – after winning the past five drivers’ and constructors’ titles.

“Boring, isn’t it?” Vettel said. “So boring. It’s not just four races. It has been four years, more or less.”

But the German, 31, believes Ferrari have the potential to challenge Mercedes this year.

“[We have to] work harder, work better. We are pushing as hard as we can,” Vettel, who won four consecutive titles with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013, said.

“But you need to respect that they are doing phenomenally well and getting their cars most of the time in the right place.

“But I’m confident. I believe in this team and I know we can improve. I think we have a good car. We just haven’t manage yet to put it always where it belongs, so it is difficult to have the trust and the feel, but I am sure it is going to turn around.
