Not bad luck, there is a reason it broke – Vettel

Sebastian Vettel’s high expectation of repeating 2015 win in Singapore was dashed by his own team in the first round on Saturday.

Vettel not did a qualifying flying lap following failure of an anti-rollbar issue but Ferrari, seeking their first win of the season, reacted too slowly and were unable to repair the car in time to set a fast lap.

Vettel was left stranded and will start Sunday’s Grand Prix from the back of the grid.

The German hardly attempted to complete a flying lap, even though only three wheels were touching the ground on occasions.

“As soon as I started pushing I noticed it, but it was impossible to repair in the session,” Vettel said.

“It is a rare failure but it is what it is. It is not bad luck. There is a reason it broke, and fortunately it only broke on one car and not two.

“For sure it is something we need to understand and learn going forward. These things happen, and it is not bad luck. It wasn’t meant to be, but we can fix it for tomorrow and have a good race.”
