Maranello-based team’s first victory in this season in last race at Silverstone with new upgrades and under new FIA blown diffuser rules.
“It was a tough race and Ferrari was very quick, Fernando in particular, and they beat us,” said Vettel in a post race video interview with Red Bull. “We need to accept it, and to understand when you get beaten you have to accept it. It was a lesson to learn, and it is up to us now to refocus and make sure that we come back with stronger performance for the next couple of races. It is a very important time now for the championship.
“We are in a good position still, but we need to keep working on ourselves because the otherwise the others come too close for our liking.”
The Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso is still 92 points behind Vettel in the standings, but it would only take a short run of bad luck for Red Bull Racing to start feeling threatened by the Spaniard.
