Be Sebastian Vettel for 11 minutes
I was thinking about all those drivers who claim to be Senna reincarnated, who wear his colors, who issue press releases about their visit to his grave and talk about him incessantly any chance they get.
I remember one of Senna's talents being his incredible ability at some point in qualifying, to put the hammer down in a way designed to destroy the opposition, usually right after they thought they had his number. He would find time where there seemed to be none or at least, where nobody else could find any.
In Brazil on Saturday, the most "Senna" of drivers was not wearing a replica helmet, he's a driver very much his own man at the moment. His pole lap, the last lap, was just phenomenal, the fastest of the week end.
Enjoy this rare treat, eleven minutes onboard with the 2010-11 Champion Sebastian Vettel in the mighty RB7 at the Autodromo Carlos Pace in São Paulo.
