The home boy Sebastian Vettel says that he was not pleased with qualifying final laps, because he claims possible in German Grand Prix pole.
Tomorrow the defending world champion start from second on the grid ahead his fellow citizen Michael Schumacher, the Mercedes guy gain one place from the preliminary results due the third fastest man Webber received five place grid penalty due his cars gear box change.
Vettel also admits that the track condition was very hard and he thinks in these conditions it’s a bit of a lottery as well.
“I was not happy with my lap,” admitted the German. “Fernando’s strategy was a bit quicker. I could have gone quicker but we don’t know if it would have been good enough.
“In these conditions it is tricky, you lose the car a little bit over the rivers on the track and you are on a different place than you targeted to be but it’s tricky. Nevertheless we had the pace today to put the car on pole in the end. I think it was possible.
“We need to have a look at what Fernando did at the end with the strategy, maybe that was the better way to do it but overall I think in these conditions it’s a bit of a lottery as well.”
Vettel is positive mind some set-up changes in RB8 after the Friday free practice, today he was also frustrated with his team mate Mark Webber ran ahead him and too sprayed water, following he complained via team radio can’t see anything.
“The car is not bad if we get in the right window so we need to look at what we’ve done in practice this morning. With the conditions changing we can’t find consistency but I think the changes we’ve made should be a step,” he said.
“I lost a lap obviously running into him but it’s difficult in these conditions and you can see nothing in the mirror so probably he didn’t see me and then with two laps to the chequered flag you can’t back off to get your lap again. For sure, I lost a little bit but the track was best at the end. The last lap was not completely clean.”
