Vettel: Maybe the Red Bulls will beat themselves

Published

on

Sebastian Vettel has recommended the Red Bulls may self- destroy in Mexico following his former team secure the front row.

Verstappen, who was the fastest in all three practice sessions on Friday, missed his first career pole by 0.026 seconds. He was hoping to become the youngest Formula One driver and the first ever Dutchman to clinch pole position.

Lewis Hamilton, who is trip to clinch his fifth career drivers’ championship on Sunday, will start third on the grid. The Briton holds a 70-point lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and only needs to finish seventh to secure the championship. Vettel will start Sunday’s race in fourth.

“It was not a very clean flying lap. I knew I had to find at least two tenths and it didn’t happen. It was very close. It was not a bad lap but it just didn’t come together. Vettel said

“I’m quite happy though, I think we got more or less everything out of the car. Obviously dropping back to fourth from second is not satisfying but we’ll see what we can do tomorrow.

“We have good straight-line speed so we’ll see what we can do into Turn One and then go from there.

“I think we probably have the best reliability so far. The Red Bulls are very fast and hard to beat but maybe they will beat themselves. It’s a long race, I think it will be decided over strategy and tyres.”
