Sebastian Vettel: Ferrari in the Top 10 is definitely a positive

1,327 seconds behind a world in formula 1, especially in Qualifying. But Sebastian Vettel is satisfied with his result, very even. Because of the German Ferrari driver goes out on Sunday from the fifth starting position in the Hungarian Grand Prix to 2020 (here in the live Ticker for this track!). So well Vettel was not classified this year.

Because he was in the two previous races at Spielberg from P10 and P11, set off and now in the Ferrari-team duel in the Qualifying round on 2:1 against Charles Leclerc has a rating of Vettel to be Cut in a first reaction, as a "definitely positive", because it got his Team to bring both cars in the Top 10.

"For today, we were able to improve [the car] yet," said Vettel in the 'Sky'. "Today also] a better day is [in comparison to the last two week. To get out of its own power, with both cars into the final Qualifying and then not only ride, but in the middle, please. It was definitely good, I think."

Vettel: What have been still inside

Vettel, the little more than two tenths of a second would be missing out on Sergio Perez in front of him, he thinks he could have been even faster. "Unfortunately, we had finally, but no two sets of Tires and more, only one. Otherwise, we could maybe squeeze some more time out of it. But that's okay, I think."

'Sky'expert Ralf Schumacher is of a different opinion and says that he finds such statements "bad". Justification: "All well and good, but bitter that it's a Ferrari and that you actually want to travel for four years to the world Cup."

Of titles, Victories or even podiums, but rather talk about Vettel in Hungary, that he sees himself in the race "in a good Position". "I think the cars around us are just as fast as we can. So, tomorrow will be difficult."

Ferrari with a tyre advantage in the race?

He could see a slight advantage for Ferrari at tyre management over the distance, especially in direct comparison with a Racing Point, the closed stands in front of Vettel. Whether Max Verstappen will be in the Red Bull from P7 coming with a threat, he didn't say. Only so much: "There's definitely a lot to do tomorrow."

Whether he was going to take at the Start, especially in front of his Ferrari team-mate Leclerc in Eight? With him, Vettel had collided last week, in the Styria Grand Prix in Spielberg's fault. Vettel must grin and classifies the chances of getting more "body damage" in Ferrari in the start-up phase as a "very low".

The humorous statement: "We have no sheet metal on the car. The days are gone a long time ago."

Vettel prognosis: The Start is crucial

After the Start Ferrari could be guided "more to the front," said Vettel more - because the vehicles in front of him with Medium tires off, Vettel and Leclerc to go on the Soft in the race. "It will all depend on how we get out of the line at the Start. Then the first Stint will show where we are," said Vettel in the 'ORF'.

"The Soft tyres are likely to degrade faster than the medium. Maybe not an advantage for us. The last years have shown that the Soft-functioning tires on Sunday quite well."

Last year, Vettel started also of P5 in the Hungarian Grand Prix, at the time, but a Position behind Leclerc. In the race, the order turned around: Vettel was third, Leclerc reached rank four.
