Vettel: We needs to use current competitive form for upcoming races

Published

on

Singapore Grand Prix winner Sebastian Vettel says that he needs to use current competitive momentum for next couple of races. Vettel dedicated his victory to the late Professor Sid Watkins.

The defending world champion retired from last grand prix at Italy due to mechanical trouble, Singapore GP victory gives him a big opportunity to challenge with Alonso for 2012 F1 title. Now he is second on the drivers’ championship 29 points behind the Alonso.

Red Bull still on the top of constructors’ championship with 298 points 37 points margin with first runner-up McLaren.

“I think it’s an incredible season for all of us; approaching the weekend not knowing what’s going to happen,” Vettel said following the race.

“Everything can happen in the race so it’s a lot of fun for us, for the people to watch, but I think we have a lot of races left. The car seems to be competitive and we’ve just got to use the momentum and keep pushing in the next couple of races to make sure we finish ahead of those guys.”

“I think it’s one of the toughest races of the year to be honest. It’s very long – we did the full two hours – the circuit is a killer, there’s so many bumps, there’s no space for mistakes and the race just seems to go on forever. Obviously we benefitted a little bit from Lewis’ failure, which I could see a couple of laps before that he lost oil.

“Generally we had a very strong pace all weekend and a good start which got us in to second and in the hunt. The pace was there, so I’m just incredibly happy and proud because this is such a tough race. So, proud to win it and I’d like to dedicate it to one very special man; Mr Sid Watkins, who passed away. He will be remembered for sure, I think he’s one of the biggest reasons why we can go out on a circuit like this, enjoy ourselves and be reasonably safe. He pushed the boundaries in terms of safety for all of us, so a big thank you.” The champion added.
