HOCKENHEIM, Germany — Given Sebastian Vettel’s lack of form, the last place he might want to race this weekend is his home grand prix in Germany.
Hockenheim serves as a painful reminder to Vettel because his title bid started to unravel at the track last year.
He was leading Lewis Hamilton in the Formula One championship, and comfortably leading the race heading into the closing stages. Then, he crashed into the barriers and gifted Hamilton a win . Although the rain was falling hard it was a mistake unbefitting of a four-time world champion, especially considering he was under no pressure from Hamilton at the time.
