Sebastian Vettel
We're usually faster in the race than we are in qualifying, but this wasn't the case today: we were sliding around too much and this affected the tires as well. Fifth and sixth place was the best we could do but we obviously can't accept that, we will be working to improve and we know what to do, the stuff that's coming up for the next races has always been part of our plan. The first part of the season didn't go as we wanted, we need to work on ourselves and I, for one, had too many ups and downs which cost me some points. But we'll keep fighting. As for today's race, the decision to fit Softs in the end was a pretty straightforward one, as we had a new set available. I decided to stay out for some more laps as I did not want to go too long with the last set, with hindsight it was probably a too conservative choice as we would have had a chance to put some pressure on the car ahead. The atmosphere today, with all the German and the Ferrari flags, was incredible and from this point of view it was my best home Grand Prix ever!
