British GP: Vettel: No gift, Third place achieved on merit
Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, insisted that his third place podium finish was no gift, and achieved on merit and as a result of a good pit-stop strategy.

Vettel suffered from a slow start, which dropped him as low as ninth from sixth place starting position on the grid, benefited with the rain and the second round of stops to finish third following he had ran as far back as eighth.

“It was not a Christmas gift, Santa Claus wasn’t there waiving me to the pits,” Vettel insisted.

“It was our own decision and obviously not a lot of people got it right, but we did. That is our choice and that’s what we achieved today. Yes, without the rain we would not be on the podium. It helped us today, we came in on the perfect lap.”

“I don’t think we took a step back, but we just couldn’t find the right direction this weekend. There are things we need to understand.”

“Surely the tires are not in our favour but that’s the same for everyone, so we need to make sure that we are at least as quick as the others and not struggling with that. Hungary will be a different track, we’ll be looking forward to that but there’s plenty of home work.”
