The F1 juggernaut moves to Korea with F1 championship leader Sebastian Vettel looking for his fourth win in a row.
Red Bull team principle Christian Horner, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton and former F1 drivers have all come down heavily on the boo guys saying the triple World Champion deserved respect for his champion-like drives.
But as the Korean GP weekend started Hamilton's teammate Nico Rosberg and former F1 champion Jenson Button slammed Vettel for his comments saying 'his behaviour made him lose the respect of fellow drivers' and 'brought on the boos from fans.'
"The car’s fantastic and it doesn’t happen by accident," Vettel said of his recent wins going on to add, "Whilst there’s a lot of people hanging their b***s in the pool on Fridays, we’re still working very hard and pushing very hard so that we have a strong race."
These words seemed to have been the cap that perfectly fitted Button and Rosberg's heads as the duo slammed Vettel.
An angry Nico Rosberg said, "Sebastian brings the boos on himself. He talks about my b***s that I hang in the pool and then the boos come." The Mercedes driver went on to add, "My guys are working hard day and night. He couldn’t know if his boys work harder. We give it full throttle. His comments are aloof and were almost his undoing qualifying. I almost stole pole from him and if I had I would have laughed. Sebastian should think less about my b***s and more about himself. With comments like that he is running the risk of losing the respect of his fellow drivers."
Button who won the 2009 F1 driver's title and has been struggling this season at McLaren said, "It is incorrect and wrong of him to say that. We are obviously not doing a good enough job to beat Red Bull and no one is at the moment but that doesn’t mean we are not working hard. Every team is working as hard as Red Bull. The problem is that being at the front, winning races and championships comes to an end, it always does for everyone. It could turn around as soon as next year, so it is unfair to every individual working in every single team for him to say they are not trying or working hard enough."
It will be better for Rosberg and Button to let their driving do the talking in Korea as despite the boos, Vettel like win seems to be getting better as each race passes this season and looks set to win his fourth F1 title with ease.
