Vettel: The car was good, but not enough for pole

GP GIAPPONE F1/2017

Qualifying Q3: P3, 1:27.791 (+ 0.472) 

Sebastian Vettel: “I think the car was very good today and I was happy with it, but it was just not enough for pole position. In my last run, I tried to push maybe a little too much, knowing that Valtteri wasn’t a threat because of his grid penalty, but it didn’t work. But overall, our car was fine. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and hot, which makes the difference and then we’ll see. We normally have a stronger car in the race than in Quali. It’s important to have a good balance here and then you can always try something with the stops. Also, I am confident we should have a good start, and that is important, but after that there are a lot of laps and strategy is important as well. In terms of pace, hopefully we should be closer to our competitors. We’ll see tomorrow”.

 

*Seb will start from P2 due to Bottas’ penalty
