Greater Noida: Legendary driver Niki Lauda is in agreement with Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone that reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel is as good as greats like Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.
Ecclestone earlier this week had said that the Red Bull driver is 'probably the best we’ve had.’
“I think Sebastian has done a great job so far, he is simply outstanding. Looking at him today, I can say yes, he is probably the best one we have had. I would put him right alongside greats like Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna. I also think that he is going to become World Champion for the fourth successive year here tomorrow,” Lauda, the 1975, 1977 and 1984 champion, said at the BIC paddock on Saturday.
Does one man dominating F 1 for so long make the sport boring as some pundits seem to think? “Well someone is, he is good and you can only congratulate him. The others have to speed up.”
