The Ferrari pilot Sebastian Vettel said that he lost the opportunity to win the pole position because of an error in the first turn of the final rapid circle.
Interestingly, in a final attempt Vettel was faster than Valtteri Bottas in the second and third sectors. Thus, the German lost pole position in the first sector.
“Of course, I’d like to be ahead of Bottas, but second place is quite a normal result, – said Vettel. – I prematurely hit the brakes in the first turn last fast lap, which lost a lot of time.
After that, I was not wrong, but all was lost in the first turn.
I can say that I’m happy with my first quick circle. When you lose 0.03 seconds, you realize that ahead of the opponent was quite real.
On the other hand, our race pace was excellent, especially compared to Valtteri. Let’s see what happens in the race.”
