Sebastian Vettel is a brilliant driver and his countryman Nico Rosberg is in the same league.

That is the view of Gerhard Berger, who watched Vettel's first Grand Prix win in 2008 as the team co-owner on the Toro Rosso pitwall.

"He is a killer," the great Austrian told Bild newspaper, "and his great advantage is he doesn't look like it. He looks like a nice young man from your neighbourhood."

Two years older than 23-year-old Vettel is fellow German Rosberg, who has not yet won a single race despite having almost two seasons more experience.

But the son of 1982 world champion Keke Rosberg has consistently beaten Michael Schumacher at Mercedes, prompting Berger to observe: "I see him on a par with Vettel.

"All he lacks is a fast car."
