Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel’s continuous victories gives a positive energy and he expects they will try to use the momentum for another strong result at Korean GP.

Vettel now in second on the drivers’ championship, just four points behind the leader Fernando Alonso. The German now targets third F1 title.

Last season Vettel made a fantastic victory at Korean GP, around 12+ seconds lead from second podium winner Lewis Hamilton. And also he added that Red Bull historically competitive in Korea.

“Of course, we had two good last races so we come here on a high and we will try to use the momentum to have another strong result here. Vettel said.

“We know this circuit should be good for us, and historically we have been competitive here… so we [will] try again.”

“In the end it is the nature of the track that maybe we used to like in the last two years so we should be reasonably competitive, but this year it has been unpredictable and you don’t know what happens,” he said.

The German was 44 points behind in the drivers’ title before the second-half start, following the summer-break, Vettel back-to victories track, and also he helped by Alonso’s and Hamilton’s DNF.

“Maybe I had a good holiday in the summer, maybe I should consider the same in the winter! It has been fairly up and down for a lot of us. We have seen this year there is a lot of cars that can surprise. Look at the race we had where Williams was competitive; in China Nico [Rosberg] was strong and won. There are more than one or two cars able to win so you need to get everything right in order to be competitive.” He added

“It has been up and down, so for us we had good races/bad races, the last couple of races were good for us, but a few races ago we didn’t finish the race in Monza. We need to stay focused and concentrate on what we have, whether there is a trend or do better in second half I don’t know. We will push hard to get our maximum.”
