The Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel on the eve of the Grand Prix of Russia in Sochi admitted that would not like to give any predictions, but hoping for an equal fight with Mercedes, despite the fact that since the advent of the Russian stage in the calendar F1 on the first step of the podium was possible to ascend only to the pilots of the German team.
“In theory it’s an appropriate track for Mercedes, so first and foremost, expect their strong performances, and any other scenario would be an unexpected – quoted Vettel in Crash.net. – I understand that last year our car just fine feel in a couple of turns. Since the concept of the car remained largely unchanged, despite the change of regulations, we should also show their strengths in certain sections.
Last year in some places, we, unfortunately, lost. I hope that this year we will rectify the situation. Look at least, the weather does not portend surprises.”
Vettel also added that were not completely satisfied with the fact that on the previous Grand Prix in Bahrain has lost a lot of time behind teammate Kimi Raikkonen: “Over the past two and a half years we fought – sometimes too far, as I’m in China last year. Yes, not everything is always perfect, but you are fighting with a partner as well as others. Most importantly, we understand – first and foremost, we stand for Ferrari”.
