You just don't know what's going to happen - Vettel
In 2007, BMW Sauber F1 Team test and reserve driver Sebastian Vettel expects the most exciting Formula One season for many years. The 19-year-old believes that there are several factors that have the potential to cause numerous surprises over the course of the 2007 season.
"I think we will witness an extremely interesting and close season," says Vettel. "You just don't know what is going to happen." According to the German, this uncertainty is the result of many reasons, one of them being the retirement of seven time World Champion Michael Schumacher. "Up to the end of the 2006 season, there was the Schumacher-factor. He was a constant, and you could always rely on him being a front-runner."
Furthermore, there have been several driver changes muddling up the field. "Many drivers have moved to new teams, making it difficult to make any serious predictions. Fernando Alonso will be racing for McLaren, Renault has signed F1 newcomer Heikki Kovalainen and Kimi Raikkonen has moved to Ferrari. There are a lot of question marks."
Therefore it comes as no surprise that Sebastian - like many Formula One experts - expects the 2007 Formula One season to be the most exciting in many years. He can't wait for the season to kick-off on 18th March in Australia. "I'm looking forward to the 2007 season already," he reveals. "As I'm convinced that we're going to witness some thrilling and spectacular races."
