Sebastian Vettel had a good start in the Azerbaijani race that he started with the pole and led the first part to the leader.
However, German Driver did a long first stint and dropped behind the safety car Bottas.
Vettel tried to pass Bottas in the first corner after the second safety vehicle, but crashed off the track, damaging his tires. As a result, the race finished in fourth place.
The German pilot, who led Lewis Hamilton to the championship leadership, says he is not worried.
"If it was not for the safety car, the race would be quite different." I saw a hole in Valtteri, but unfortunately the tires were locked, sometimes it happened, everyone knew I had a good pace. "
"Now it is easy to say that this is not working, so I do not want to use similar words.
"I tried to sneak this trap in the first corner because there was a gap inside the Valtteri, Lewis was in the right hand and Valtteri was at the front, I could not go to the right, I had a lot of speed and I chose to go inside as I said it was not successful because the tires were locked and I can not blame anyone for it, I could not do it. "
"In spite of everything, the most important thing is that we have a fast pace, and if we lead in order, we can race for victory because we have a speed to achieve it."
"I do not care what happened, because the situation is very different from last year, last year we were not competitive enough in the race and ranking, but it was always fast if we look at today or previous races.
"It's hard to do something like this and it's annoying, but there's nothing to do, we know our vehicle is fast, and it gives us confidence."
"Today's race was good for some, not for some, talk to Valtteri, I'm sure he is not happy because he can not win, I'm not as worried as I am because our car is fast.
"If it were not for the security car, it would probably be me, this was the general table of the last two races, and we could win."
"Valtteri had nothing to lose today and he called for a different strategy, which was very fast and tried to use it.
"As I said, there is a result that does not change anything, we have a good vehicle, no worries, the biggest difference over the past year is that we now have a pole and a winner everywhere."
