Sebastian Vettel said it was extremely enjoyable to continue with the SF71H after having the pole position in Bahrain.
Although Sebastian Vettel lagged behind his teammates on practice sessions, he raised the tempo in his practice sessions, and he had a great tour in the final episode.
The 1:27,958 lap brought the pole position to himself, while the German pilot was the only one to go down under 1:28 in the final episode.
The German pilot, who made a better lap of 0.143 seconds than his closest rival, Kimi Raikkonen, said the session was difficult but good for them.
The battle was really tense, if you look at it, the first fast lap was very good, I was satisfied, but I made a mistake in the last corner and ruined the lap. "
"In the second try, it was great to put everything together, I realized I had to stay away from the borders after the first lap! I threw away and waited, and now I am happy to be in the pole."
"From the first session of the weekend, our car showed a perfect performance, I am looking forward to the race with great impatience, it is a pleasure to drive when the vehicle gives you the desired reaction.
"I had the opposite situation in Australia and I was fighting with the mediator, but here we have improved balance and every passing session is a good thing to do, we developed on Friday and we did more on Saturday."
"I can not say that it was easy, the training was done under the sun, the race and ranking would be in the dark, but our SF71H was great, it worked great."
"It's a great day now, tomorrow will be a new day, it's hard to say anything before the long race, but our car is fast and it's something that will help us."
"We had some difficulties during the day, but we were able to come from above all, and I am very happy for my team!"
