I’m not happy, I’m not satisfied – Vettel

Published

on

Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel was upset and frustrated on a Sunday race particularly it’s happened at his home race. The Champ start from the second row of the grid, the first time in 15 races he hasn’t qualified in the top two places, Vettel found himself in a fight, squabbling for track position. Vettel go down to fourth following Fernando Alonso, Vettel had an unreliable race through which he dropped as low as P9 following twice running off the track and putting his RB7 into a slide.

But, he controlled to work his way back up to fifth by the end of the second round of pit stops and spent more than a few laps chasing the Felipe Massa. But, not capable to find a way by, he had to wait until the final stop for medium tyres on the second to last lap to finally get ahead of Massa. And it was all down to his Red Bull mechanics to get him onto the track ahead of Ferrari driver, who had pitted at the same time.

“It felt good to get out ahead of Felipe, it was nice to see the Ferrari still stationary,” said the German. “I think both of us were right at the limit at the end of the race.” But while that may have been “nice”, finishing in fourth place was not.

“I think fourth was probably our maximum today, which is not satisfying,” Vettel told the BBC. We need to work harder on our car to get back on to the podium, and maybe on to the top step again. We have to accept that today other people were quicker than us, and surely I’m not happy, I’m not satisfied. I didn’t feel too good all weekend, I never got to the pace Mark had in his car.”
