Vettel plans to bounce back at Belgian GP

Beaten in four of the last five races, Formula One leader Sebastian Vettel will aim to reassert his authority at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The defending F1 champion still holds a comfortable overall lead, but his confidence could be shaken if he fails to win this weekend after losing to McLaren drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button in the past two races.

McLaren’s tough start to the season has assisted Vettel, the Red Bull driver winning five of the six opening races. The German is not yet out of reach, however, after his recent dip in form.

Hamilton, who won last year’s Belgian GP, says “we go into the race weekend in a pretty good place” because “we’ve won the last two grands prix and the car feels strong.”
