The Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel believes that the team have not lost anything by abandoning work on the track in the second session of the Grand Prix of Japan, when it was raining.
In dry conditions this morning, the German showed the best time, ahead of the 0.2 seconds of championship leader Lewis Hamilton. On a wet track after lunch he drove just one lap.
“We have a good chance, – quotes Vettel F1i. – I don’t think the storm will have a serious impact on the future course of the weekend. See what conditions can we expect on Saturday, and we’ll go from there.
In the morning on a dry track the car was competitive. In the afternoon we did not have a single series of circles, but everything should be fine.”
The partner of the German team, Kimi Raikkonen added: “We expected rain, and in the first session tried to drive more laps than usual. Everything went OK, we got a good idea of how to look on a dry track.
We didn’t even try to collect data after the second training. The number of sets of rain tyres is limited and these tires can be useful to us in qualifying, if it rains again”.
