“When you know the sport like I did and Lewis did, what you’re looking for is to win and be at the top,” said Vettel, who won four consecutive titles with Red Bull between 2010 and 2013.

“Does the eighth, or 12th, or 13th place impress you? No, no, so many times when you know you’ve been there before, and more than any other guy in Lewis’ case.

“George (Russell) comes in. He spent three years suffering at the back of Williams’ pitch, scoring odd points, and all of a sudden he’s in eighth or 12th place and his life is amazing.

“They’re all different, but you have to be fair on the outside and say, look, will Lewis, of course, be as excited as George is likely to be at the eighth finish line? No, and I’d be surprised if he were.”
