Vettel: Car felt good in both dry and wet conditions

Sebastian Vettel 2015 Malaysian GP
Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel split the Mercedes drivers by claiming second place ahead of Nico Rosberg.

Wet conditions justified a big attempt on the part of Vettel to split the Mercedes drivers, but the four-time world champion stepped up to the challenge, presenting the Scuderia its first front row start since Malaysia in 2013.

Vettel said anything is possible after qualifying battle “You never know, just look outside! Obviously when it starts to rain here – and there’s always a high chance – it can mix up things,” he stated.

“I think it was an interesting qualifying session and the car felt good in both dry and wet conditions at the end. I’m reasonably happy and also the long runs look good on practice days, so we should be in good shape, but we know that they [Mercedes] are difficult to beat.

“That’s ultimately why we turn up – trying to win, so we will see what we can do tomorrow. Maybe it looks like we are a little bit closer here, but we will have to wait and see I guess.”

“We should have a good car. I think we had a decent Friday and we have done our homework. Obviously now we see what we can do to prepare for the race – obviously we can’t touch the cars – but the balance was pretty good for qualifying and on Friday, as I said, was quite pretty solid.

“Obviously we will be looking after the tyres and I know this race can be a difficult one on tyres and you never know with the rain; there is always a chance and it could mix things up.

“Starting where we do I think we have a decent chance to do well tomorrow and we could be up for anything,” the German added.
