Scuderia Ferrari German driver Sebastian Vettel admitted that the Maranello team is eager to get back to winning ways as quickly as possible but has called for “patience” in their pursuit of a belated 2019 breakthrough.
Despite several big chances to land a victory so far this year, Scuderia Ferrari have seen Mercedes win nine times and Red Bull now twice – including at Sunday’s epic German GP with Max Verstappen. The italian side had appeared to have the fastest car in the dry at Hockenheim, but Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel qualified 10th and 20th respectively after separate car problems struck the SF90. In the wet race, Charles Leclerc crashed out when running second, but Sebastian Vettel salvaged a commendable second-place finish from the back row.
Still, Scuderia Ferrari’s run without a win now stretches to 14 races, and Sebastian Vettel admitted: “It’s certainly a tough time for us as Ferrari with days like [Saturday] because it shows that we have things that we need to sort out, we have things that we need to do better but I think in this period it’s very important that we keep the morale, we keep supporting the team,”
“From the inside that is happening, from the outside I hope it’s happening as well. I know the Tifosi are behind us but sometimes the headlines can shift in either way so it’s important that we keep the support because I think things are moving, we are pushing very, very hard and when it comes to passion I think we put a lot of effort and a lot of hours in; the people are very determined. I’m as impatient as everyone else to get the results finally but it will take a little while. We know what we can improve and that’s where we are working on but in the meantime I hope that people are a bit patient and give us that freedom in that time.” – Scuderia Ferrari German driver Sebastian Vettel concluded.
