Vettel:  The targets haven’t changed
Malaysian GP winner, Sebastian Vettel says that the Italian outfit wants to be realistic about its targets for the Chinese GP.

Also, he has not claims repeating his Malaysian Grand Prix victory in China on this Sunday. The Malaysia GP top podium was Ferrari’s first since Fernando Alonso won the Spanish GP in May 2013.

The Four-time world champion, who joined Ferrari this season from Red Bull, said he was celebrated success over lunch with the team HQ in Maranello on his return to Europe.

“No, I think we are realistic about where we are and what we want to achieve. I think the targets haven’t changed.” Vettel said

“Obviously it was a great victory we had in Malaysia and great for us as a team, and especially for myself a very emotional day – my first win with Ferrari. And then to come back – I think it was Wednesday – coming back to the factory and to see all the people there was quite special.”

“There are a lot of people working there, so you can imagine, and of course they were very, very happy. The team hasn’t won for quite a while, so I think they enjoyed the fact that they had something to celebrate, there are a couple of rituals involved and it was nice for them to get that feeling again”

“But as I said, for the next races nothing has changed: we want to confirm that we have a strong package, we have a strong car and we want to make sure that we stay ahead of the people we stayed of in the last couple of races, but knowing that obviously Mercedes is in a very, very strong position.”
