Sebastian Vettel on the Silverstone contract renewal:
“It’s good news, it’s good for F1. It’s the home of motoracing so we have to come here. Quite happy that we stay here and not try something fancy. This is a great track, every driver likes it, the fans come here every year.
Sebastian Vettel about what Ferrari is missing at the moment:
“Consistency. There are still too many ups and downs. The car doesn’t always feel the same. It doesn’t help if we always look back at the winter testing again. We now have the answers we were looking for. Now it’s up to us to implement them. I’m quite optimistic. I think the last couple of weeks have been better for us, hopefully we can continue in that trend. We had two races that we’ve been fighting for the win. One arguably we won (Canada), one we missed out by a small amount so that is the positive news and that’s what we take from those races. I think we learned a lot after the confusion, or some bits that maybe didn’t turn out to work the way we wanted to during the French Grand Prix. Austria brought some clarity and I think we have a clear picture of what was wrong and what needs to be changed. I think it’s pretty normal that all the bits you bring don’t always bring you what you expect. Sometimes the parts overdeliver and sometimes they underdeliver. We just need to make sure we know a direction to go in and we keep going that way. I think there’s always hope. Even the races in which the result was a given, I think we find ourselves as a team trying to make a difference. How many times we succeeded in the last 5 years I don’t know. That’s definitely the objective we have.”
Sebastian Vettel on if he still believes in winning the title:
“I have no reason not to believe it. But it’s not my first thought when I go to bed. To turn things around, we need a stronger package. It is not enough to challenge the others.”
