“Unfortunately we had a big change and we lost quite a lot of time in the afternoon,” Vettel said.

“Not completely ideal but that is Friday – or in this case, Thursday. We would like to be a little bit more competitive in low-fuel configuration so we need to try and find some lap time there.

“My run on super-soft was very poor, so we need to understand why. I wasn’t able to improve which you should be quite easily. After that I did a long run on super-soft and it seemed quite OK.”
