Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel says that he is not worried about 2012 Red Bull RB8 consistency problems at Jerez pre-season test. Vettel’s morning running time lost in Friday (last day of testing) to an electrical problem
“When I sat down in the new car for the first time, I had the most amazing feeling – it was like coming home after a really long trip,” reigning world champion Vettel published via his official blog.
“My first impressions of our new RB8 are extremely positive, despite the fact that we now have to ‘get to know each other’. With all the excitement and good vibes, we shouldn’t forget the fact that we’re currently at the beginning.
“It’s all about trying out different stuff and getting a good feeling in the new car. The thing we probably focus the most on is definitely the speed. I think it’s always possible to make a fast car more reliable, but I’m not sure if you can make a reliable car faster.”
“Another important thing is to not get worried too soon,” he added. “It’s totally normal to have small problems; after all, that’s what these testing days are for. For instance, we had a small technical problem today, but were able to fix it again. To be on the safe side, we changed the engine, but as I said, I’d rather have those problems now than later during a race.”
