Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel says that Red Bull need more qualifying pace and its will gives victory for RB8.
In Last grand prix at China Vettel start from 11th and lose some place in 1st lap, But Red Bull’s excellent race strategy help him and fished 5th from 15th. Vettel accept his own wrong decision use old version exhaust configuration at Chinese GP and he admits new version is ultimately better.
“Surely we need something more,” he said, when asked if better qualifying performance would be enough to win again. “In the races, for a reason, we get beaten – so it is not as if we have the best race car and just because of our qualifying position we are not ahead. We are quite a bit away.
“But as I have said many times I believe the potential is there, the car is quick, and once we start putting everything together I think we will feel a bit more comfortable. Then, we should be in a much better position in qualifying and in the race.”
“It is a better direction to go, so that is why it is back on the car,” he said. “It was a good test for us to have a real back-to-back and what we introduced back in testing, we didn’t have the best two days at the end, so I think that it was why it was a good test.”
“Obviously it’s a new weekend, a different track, different conditions, and it is quite hot, so we will see. Surely we cannot expect miracles – it is one week since the last race. We hope we can do a step forward in qualifying which seemed to be a little bit of a weakness at that stage, but in terms of race pace we are not that far off. So let’s see.”
