“I think it’s a good thing, because in the end it shows that all this exhaust talk is useless, so I think Ferrari looks again very competitive after what we’ve seen today, with both cars,” he added. With McLaren as I said it’s very difficult to judge if they are back to where they were, for the majority of the season, in terms of exhaust blowing etc. I think they will be quick as well tomorrow, so you can’t forget about them.”
As for Red Bull’s own form, Vettel believes there is still room for improvement, although overall he says he was RB7 was okay.
“It was good fun, obviously the circuit was quite slippery, the temperatures being low. All in all I think we did a lot of laps, and the cars seem to be okay.
“We’re not 100% happy yet. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. At this stage obviously a lot of work ahead. I think if we can make a step forward, then it’s worth a lot.
“We don’t know the conditions for tomorrow and Sunday. Rain is forecasted, so it’s on the way. It’s a question of where and when it will hit us. Now we need to sit down and see what we can improve, but surely I think there is room to improve.”
