The German is confident that he can beat anyone on the grid.
“I don’t see it that way at all,” said Vettel.
“I understand that people refer to 2014. I lost on paper and it’s fair to say that because the numbers say I lost to Daniel, but I also know that in 2014 some things did not go as we hoped they would.
“My primary goal in 2014 was not to stand on the podium or to finish fifth.”
“The goal was to win races. Perhaps my attitude at that time was slightly different from Daniel’s, but more than that, 2014 was not a great year.
“But I’m also confident that I can beat anyone who drives out there.” I’m not afraid of the competition.
“The contrary would make no sense. If you want to win and fear competition, these are two things that don’t go together.”
