Vettel completes “brief” test in Budapest

TETEST F1/2017 - T4 - BUDAPEST (UNGHERIA) 01 - 02/08/17

The second and last in-season test session of the year ended with both Scuderia Ferrari drivers back on track at the Hungaroring after last Sunday’s one-two in the race. Sebastian Vettel took the wheel of the SF70H this morning at 9, and handed over to Kimi Raikkonen after a couple of hours, for the Finn to continue the development work. Sebastian completed 47 laps, his best time being a 1min17sec124 on Supersoft tires, while Kimi ran 60 laps with a best time of 1’’17’842 on Supersoft tires.

Sebastian Vettel: “You don’t get a lot of testing over the season, so it was a good opportunity to try a couple of things and get a feeling from the car. Obviously, in such a brief test you are not expecting to turn the world upside down, but it will be useful for the next races and for a better understanding of the car. I think this year we’ve been strong pretty much everywhere, of course there have been races in which we did not perform at our best; of course there will always differences from track to track, but the purpose of all the work we do is to be in a good shape for the rest of the season. We’ve picked up momentum with the win in Hungary, now it’s up to us to keep it going, but I am confident that we have the right people and are going in the right direction. As for my holidays… I haven’t done much planning, I think I’ll just be getting some rest, after all those flights!”
