Vettel and Scuderia Ferrari on top in Australia

26 03 2017 gp australien gp australia 20170326 1219231885It's been a great day for us. The team has been working so hard at the track as much as back at the factory. It's a great feeling. "Grazie mille", you can't say much more. The last months have been really intense, it's been tough to get into the rhythm. It's just the beginning and there's still a lot of work going on. This is one of many steps and we have to enjoy what we do. It's great to see people smiling. Now we have to reset to go to China and try to do a good job.

gp australien 24 03 2017 gp australia 24 03 2017 20170324 1285439879Overall the car is not yet where I want it to be. It’s not bad but I think we can do better. We can do a step forward and there is a lot of work ahead of us. I think today it’s still difficult to say where we are. We had a mixed day because the morning session was not so good because of small issues but the team is doing well and we can improve. The balance is not so good yet but I am sure we can work on it.

25 03 2017 gp australien gp australia 20170325 1621051586Seb 2nd and Kimi 4th in qualifying in Melbourne: “A great recovery after yesterday”

"If we look back twelve months, the progress we have made is clear to see,” said Sebastian Vettel. “We are working well as a team, having had a great winter; a winter of changes, but all for the best.” There are no points given out after qualifying and the 2017 championship has only just begun, but having Seb Vettel on the front row in the SF70H, with a gap to pole down by half a second, does nevertheless mean something. And with Kimi Raikkonen right behind in fourth place, it shows that the overall picture is encouraging. “Good recovery” said Seb over the radio, immediately after posting a time of 1.22”456, which secured him second place on the grid. He was referring to the work of the team that had managed to fix what needed to be fixed in terms of set-up, after Friday’s free practice. As for Kimi, whose best lap was a 1.23”033, his usual honesty meant he didn’t disguise his slight disappointment at being on the second row. “I made life complicated for myself right from the first session: I never managed to put all the sectors together and that cost me lap time. But the car feels strong and I just have to do better.”
