Vettel: I’m very, very happy with Korean victory



Sebastian Vettel pleased with Korean Grand Prix victory; he made three top podiums back-to-back in a row, Singapore, Japan and Korean GP. It was fourth victory of the season and especially 25th career victory.

Now the defending world champion led the drivers’ championship, six points ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, Vettel earned 75 points in the last three races.

“Yeah, very pleased, fantastic. I’m very, very happy, that was a fantastic race.” Vettel told former F1 driver Johnny Herbert on the podium, following the presentation Q&A.

“The foundation was to have a good start but I wasn’t too sure because I was on the dirty side; but I had a very good launch and Mark (Webber) had a bit of wheelspin. At Turn 3 I could hear Mark coming, but fortunately I got a good exit and was ahead! In the first stint Mark was always on my toes but I had a little bit left in my tyres.”

“We had two very good pit-stops. The only mistake I really made was locking up the front at Turn 3. We were a bit worried about the front tyres because we saw a lot of people locking up and overshooting apexes.

“I have to thank the boys for this one; they’ve been flat-out every night because there wasn’t much time after Japan, so hopefully we can carry this momentum through to the next race. I’m looking forward to the next couple of races. We have seen the championship has been very up and down, so we have to focus on ourselves, having the best possible results and scoring the most points possible.”
