Vettel says Engine-mapping modification not upsetting Red Bull performance



Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel insists that FIA engine mapping judgment is not disturbing Red Bull Racing’s performance in Hungarian Grand Prix.

After Hungarian GP Friday practice Vettel says not felt anything different in RB8 following the Engine-mapping modification.

The Champion required modifying the previous engine maps of its Renault engines after a rule clearing up from the FIA after German GP.

“No,” he said when asked if he felt anything different. “There is a lot of talk but if you would know what is going on in the background then you would not be too interested in all the talking and stuff that has been printed in the last few days.

“Fortunately tomorrow there is a new newspaper, and after tomorrow again, and especially on Monday, so we focus on the race here and then try to make some good news for Monday’s newspaper.”

“It is much less than what people expect. Surely if we would have the choice then we would go back to what we had in Hockenheim but it is difficult for us to measure, like I said yesterday.”

Vettel also added that second practice was interrupted by heavy rain because not predict who is quickest in this weekend and he still expecting better pace in this weekend.

“It is difficult to judge because we didn’t get a crack on the soft tyres, therefore it’s difficult to compare in terms of competitiveness. So it was a normal Friday.

“I think there is still a lot of room for improvement for us. I think we need to do a little bit better for the rest of the weekend and we’ll see where we are. Unfortunately the weather caught us out like everyone in the end but we’ll see what we get tomorrow.”
