Fifth in the World Championship would be a good result for a lot of drivers. That is where Sebastian Vettel finished the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship™.
Only once, in his first full season in Grand Prix racing, has he finished lower than that, and that was 12 years ago. The last time he finished fifth was 2014, after which he parted ways with Red Bull Racing.
Vettel remains an enigma. On his day he is simply untouchable, running up front and dominating the opposition without apparent effort. But when that does not happen, he often looks perplexed.
Four world titles and 53 Grand Prix wins are impressive numbers.
Vettel is certain to add more race wins, but another title is a bigger ask. And first he needs to overcome the challenge that has arrived on the other side of the Ferrari garage.
