Unhappy Sebastian Vettel believes in “working, working, working” for comeback
Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel is clearly frustrated. The young German Formula One driver admitted he was unsatisfied with his fourth place finish at Budapest on Sunday.
Sebastian Vettel was part of an intense race at the Hungarian Grand Prix where McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton took first place and Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen came in second. His teammate Romain Grosjean picked the third spot.
Sebastian Vettel, who is two points behind his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber, has 122 points of the Championship table. Sebastian Vettel is left with a five-point lead over the victor from the Hungarian Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton.
The defending champion of the Formula One title, Sebastian Vettel was visibly displeased with the end results from the race on the Hungaroring circuit. Sebastian Vettel managed to take two points off the Formula One driver Fernando Alonso.
The Spaniard has been in stunning form in his Ferrari this season. Sebastian Vettel has little reason for satisfaction from stealing two points from Fernando Alonso. However, if the youngster manages to grab a comeback in second half of the season he will probably look back at the Hungarian Grand Prix as successful mission.
Nonetheless, right now Sebastian Vettel is unsatisfied over keeping ahead of second placed Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso.
“Probably not, but it was our maximum,” told reporters in his post match press conference. “The start was not so great and I lost my spot to Jenson (Button) in the first corner, which in the following laps was very costly on time - otherwise we could have tried something. If you decide to pit earlier you run into traffic as the gaps aren’t there in that very moment. So as I just said, we’ve achieved the maximum in the situation we’ve been in.”
Sebastian Vettel is already looking towards Spa in second half of the season. Sebastian Vettel believes Red Bull needs to keep “working, working, working” in order to make a comeback.
“Well, I think that the speed is definitely there, but the consistency is probably our sore spot. So the only thing that really will help is working, working, working,” Sebastian Vettel said.
The 24-year-old also talked about his disappointments and expectations in Hungary.
“…I don’t know what you expect? Sebastian Vettel said. “We sit in the car for one and a half hours, race at the limit, it is hot as hell, and then you sit in traffic - which in itself is not a huge satisfier - and you know that you cannot get airborne to get into a better position. All you can do then is to stay focused. And of course if you know that you’ve been fighting for every inch and it didn’t pay off, that is a bit frustrating.”
