RONNIE O’SULLIVAN has likened himself to a Ferrari after blasting his way past Graeme Dott to book a quarter-final spot at the Ladbrokes Players Championship.

Dott had chances in the opening frame but before he knew it O’Sullivan was 4-0 up at the interval thanks to breaks of 106, 62 and 51.

The five-time World Champion then went 5-0 in front before Dott pulled a frame back with a break of 52.

But it was a mere formality for the Rocket in the seventh frame and a 50 break secured a 6-1 victory.

O’Sullivan is in the form of his career this season as he chases a fifth ranking title.

He has already lifted more ranking events, made more centuries and collected prize money than in previous campaigns.

“I look at myself like a Ferrari – you can’t keep driving it every day”

“A lot of the other players are burned out,” he said.

“I just chip up now and then and nick a few trophies.

“I’m as fresh as a daisy because you have to pace yourself.

“I look at myself like a Ferrari – you can’t keep driving it every day, you have to polish it, clean it, keep it in the garage and keep the miles down.
