I think it was pretty exceptional – Vettel

Published

Sept.24 – Sebastian Vettel listed his 11th pole position in this season, Red Bull and Vettel frequently hold P1 100%, in Marina Bay he was made pole with 1:44:381, and his team mate set second fastest with 1:44:732.

Tomorrow every F1 spectators will see youngest dual world champion.

“In the last run I tried maybe a little bit too much at the chicane at Turn 10,” said Vettel. “I decided to abort and go easy to not damage the car. I was happy with my first lap circuit and in the end it was possible to go faster. But all in all a perfect session. It’s a big challenge, so many corners and a long lap to get everything together. We learned from the mistakes we did in qualifying last year and kept our heads cool. It’s great today to have both cars in front row, so let’s see tomorrow.”

In Singapore pole means the championship leader Vettel is just three away from equalling Nigel Mansell’s record number of poles during a season.

“I think it was pretty exceptional,” he said of Mansell’s record. “It was 1992, Nigel had an incredible year. We are not doing too bad this year, but it’d be wrong to start thinking about those things. We have a long race ahead of us tomorrow, that’s where we score points and not in qualifying. It shows that every single race is another step for us. We try to focus on the moment which is the most important to get all out. We have to keep doing what we are doing, and it’s not easy to do it every weekend.

“Tomorrow is the race and that is where the focus is. I still believe Nigel’s record is exceptional.”
