Vettel: Tomorrow we can do a step forward

Published

on

Sebastian Vettel is not pleased with his Friday practice performance for Belgian Grand Prix. He made fifth and tenth fastest times across the both Friday practice.

Friday was a hard day for the twice time Belgian GP winner (Red Bull in 2011 and 2013) but he is very confident that progress can be made for Saturday.

Vettel expects improvements for tomorrow

“It’s obviously nice to come here after the last race and a great result, but we need to keep our feet on the ground. It’s a different circuit, different conditions again, so we’ll try to do our best as usual.” Vettel said.

“Today it was not the best day for us, it was a bit difficult to find the rhythm, but for tomorrow I think we can do a step forward: we have to do so, because we don’t want to be tenth. I’m quite confident that we can tune up the car, because today I was not entirely happy with it: tomorrow it should be a better day.”

This Belgium GP marked his 150th grand prix weekend of career. Asked by the media to reflect on his F1 career since he started competing at the top echelon in 2007, Seb admits he has not seen the time fly by and looks to add more success in the future.

“I’m a little surprised I’ve arrived already at 150 grands prix, I don’t feel that experienced but it’s obviously nice, I’m still hungry, I still love what I do. To judge which one was the nicest win or nicest race I don’t think is fair.

“Obviously I had many special races, the first win will always be special, winning the championship for the first time will remain special and of course, the first win with Ferrari was equally special.
“I don’t want to pick one, I want to pick a lot.”
