Nothing really to complain about – Vettel

Lewis Hamilton snatch pole position away from his teammate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari duo at the Bahrain Grand Prix, the gap between Rosberg, just under eight hundredths of a second.

Sebastian Vettel qualified third, ahead of his teammate Kimi Raikkonen. Mercedes duo booked the front row and two Ferraris on second row was a repeat of Australian GP.

FP3 pace setter and nearest title competitor Sebastian Vettel ‘surprised’ by rivals’ final improvement

“I am happy to take the fight. Let’s see where we are during the race. Today there’s nothing really to complain about.” Vettel said

“It’s a big surprise that both Lewis and Nico in the end were able to improve so much. For me the track was similar to the run before and that’s why the time was practically the same.”

“Tomorrow we hope to have a good start, but not doing the same as in Australia thereafter… We know we are not yet where we want to be but I think we are pushing very hard though. Obviously the season has started already so it’s up to us to make sure we keep making technical progress, but as I said many times the car is a big improvement to last year and this will provide more opportunities to improve also in the future; but we really have to keep up the pressure.”

“You can talk about what can happen in ten races but we have to focus first of all on tomorrow, prepare the race as good as we can because there’s a chance to do well and to win. That’s my belief. If I am right or not we’ll see, but that’s the joy, I think, and what I love about racing. To put it in simple terms, I would love to win tomorrow.” the German added

“Naturally if we had more speed we’d also have a better chance to win. But I think we are on the right track, we are a team and we try to improve together. Today was a good day for us, all the car balance was good and we got everything we wanted by ourselves, which is the most important thing.”
