Stewart: Lot more to come from Vettel, but...
28 December 2010 – Sir Jackie Stewart reckons there is still a lot more to come from newly crowned F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel and he believes the 23-year-old will go from strength-to-strength next season. Stewart also added though that he thinks Britain’s Lewis Hamilton is probably the 'best racer' of the lot.
"Sebastian [Vettel] is a young driver. He is 23 years of age," Stewart told Autosport. "I remember when I was 23, and I told him when I saw him at the Autosport Awards, that was the age when I started to race racing cars. I was 23, and he is world champion at 23.
"Mark Webber is 34. I know when I was 34, I was a better man than when I was 23, so therefore I think there is a lot more to come from Sebastian.
"Webber is still in there, and [Robert] Kubica could one day be world champion. You also have Jenson [Button] driving in the smoothest and cleanest way of any driver, and Lewis [Hamilton] is probably the best racer of the whole lot - and the best equipped is still [Fernando] Alonso.
"You have such a group of extraordinarily skilled people. I think it's the best field ever," he summed-up.
