Vettel wins Red Bull 1-2 in Belgian GP

Published

on

Aug.28 – Defending champion Sebastian Vettel has made stronger his title lead by winning Belgian GP. Vettel’s team-mate Mark Webber on second and McLaren’s Jenson Button finish to third from 13th on the grid.

Vettey says – “I’m very happy; today was a very good race for us, although it was not easy with the tyres. The beginning of the race was more research and science than racing and we sacrificed a lot by topping very early.

“We had a good feeling though and I came in again when the safety car came out, just to see how they were. I can judge a bit from looking at the inside, but when you’re doing 300kph or more and the tyres are always spinning rather than stopped, you can’t really take the time to see, so it was crucial to come in and have a closer look.

“I’m very happy with the result. It’s a big relief after all the discussions we had going into the race. This morning disturbed our normal rhythm, as normally you know what you do when you arrive on Sunday morning, but today we had a lot of discussions which doesn’t make it easy to keep focused.

“Before the race, we decided the priority was simply to finish the race today and not think too much about where, so that’s why I am so happy with the result. It couldn’t have been any better. The car felt fantastic and with each lap we learned more and more about the tyres, which made us more confident to push when necessary.”
