Sebastian Vettel: Mercedes riders will be fast in ChinaApril 13, 2019
Sebastian Vettel showed the second time in the second training session of the Grand Prix of China and noted that he could pass his circle faster. His partner Charles Leclaire lost a lot of time due to technical problems, but said he was happy with the car.
Sebastian Vettel (2nd): “In general, I am pleased with how the day went – the car is fast, but I am not satisfied with myself, because I could drive faster. Tomorrow it’s important to do everything right.
I expect that Mercedes drivers will be fast on this track. If we get closer to them, it will be a good sign. Let’s see what happens tomorrow, but we have the opportunity to add. We need to take turns faster, and it will be great if we manage to find an increase in speed until tomorrow. ”
Charles Leclaire (7th): “The second training session was not the best. I had to interrupt work to check something related to oil pressure, but it turned out that nothing serious. If we talk about speed, then in the second session I was not able to pass a quick lap, so it is difficult to say something. Overall, I’m happy with the car. There is still work to do with the balance, but tomorrow everything should be fine.
Let’s see what awaits us in the qualification. I think we have to fight hard not only with Mercedes, but also with Red Bull. An interesting battle awaits us. ”
Charles Leclaire commented on the words of Mattia Binotto that the team will bet on Vettel, if the Ferrari racers have equal chances to win: “I understand this perfectly well and, as I said, I act in the interests of the team. We need the first and second numbers, but I will try to change the situation as quickly as possible.
What should I do for this? Stay ahead in qualifying and in the race. It’s not easy, because Sebastian is incredibly fast, but this is my job.
