Vettel: We need to understand what it caused the puncture

Published

Double world champion Sebastian Vettel feels sad lost opportunity in the Abu Dhabi GP following retiring for the first time in this season. Vettel start from pole position, and he made better start, unfortunately he spin-out in turn 2 after a right rear tyre puncture to his RB7.

“At the exit of the first corner everything seemed fine but as soon as I started to turn in for the second corner I felt something was wrong with the rear right and I had to catch the car surprisingly,” Vettel told the BBC.

“And the second time I had to catch it I couldn’t do it anymore. I had a puncture and I spun off. And on the way back I damaged the suspension so badly I couldn’t carry on.” Up to that point we had a very good start. I was very happy with the car. It’s hard to say how quick we could have been. Mark had a difficult race. His pace was good so I think his car was in good shape. He added

“On other hand I think Lewis and Fernando had strong pace. I think we would have had a chance, but it’s difficult to stand here and tell you what it could have been. In the end it didn’t happen because we didn’t make it much longer than one lap.”

“It looks like at the exit we suddenly lost tyre pressure. The tyre was flat by the time I went into turn two. I don’t really know why. It’s nothing I did different to any other lap or any other driver so we need to really understand what it caused the puncture.”
