Vettel left unsatisfied after ‘mixed’ Friday in Singapore

Vettel left unsatisfied after ‘mixed’ Friday in Singapore

Sebastian Vettel experienced a “mixed day” of practice for the Singapore Grand Prix on Friday despite Ferrari being tipped to dominate proceedings heading into the race weekend.

Mercedes had expected to suffer on the high downforce circuit, endangering the championship lead Vettel’s chief title rival Lewis Hamilton had taken at Monza.

However, although the midfield Mercedes-powered teams seemed to be suffering, both Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas ended up well ahead of the Ferraris, who were left P9 and P11 in FP2, with Kimi Raikkonen finishing ahead of Vettel.

Asked what had happened to leave him outside the top 10, Vettel admitted he was not completely satisfied by how the day had gone.

“I thought it was a mixed day, a mixed session,” Vettel said.

“Obviously not ideal that I lost the car on my second attempt but overall I’m not yet happy.”

Every team has brought specific setup changes to meet the downforce requirements of Marina Bay, but Ferrari is yet to find the sweet spot with its SF70H car.

“[We’re] missing a little bit of balance and a bit of confidence,” Vettel said.

“I think we tried a couple of things, not sure they’re the right things to do and now we look at what we can do tomorrow.

“I think we need a bit of time but overall it’s clear that both of us weren’t happy today and we need to improve and get a solution.”
