Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel thinks they have better marks as to where they are now after the first 4 races in 2018 Formula 1 season.
After the pre-season tests, Ferrari was not given much chance, but if we were to lose some of the bad luck, Ferrari gave the impression of the fastest car in the first 4 races.
Speaking in Spain, Vettel said, "It was difficult to know exactly where we were before the season, and we are generally looking forward to seeing what will happen in the first race in the test period, and we have proven that we are very competitive and we have been able to win the majority of the races." said.
On the question of whether the championship fight itself will be between Lewis Hamilton and the championship fight in the remainder of the season, Vettel said, "If we look at the number of races ahead, it would be pointless to talk about the championship struggle right now, but for the time being we are aiming to get the maximum out of every weekend. It's important to complete as many races as possible, and at the same time, we must win as many races as possible. gave the answer.
There are rumors that Mercedes will open up the power of the motor since Barcelona, despite concerns about durability. This claim was also asked, Vettel.
Vettel said: "In Australia, Mercedes has the fastest pace, or rather the best pace, and there was a balance in the next race, including Red Bull, but the ranks were different. "
"We will see a lot of technical updates, we'll see what will change, we'll see if anything will change in the power balances, but if you start from the first row, you'll start to win the race from the sixth row. " said.
Vettel commented, "Yes, it is beautiful, but the halo is not very beautiful ..." as to how to attach the rearview mirrors to the halo.
Whether or not the performances of the teams will be a sign for the season's remains, Vettel says, "Yes, it is still so. Barcelona is what it is: there is no change in the structure of the piste, everything is there and always a good sign Pirelli, Mercedes and Red Bull have changed their tires after they have been having problems with the tests. " said.
Finally, Vettel was asked whether Fernando Alonso was victorious in the World Endurance Championship and whether he was following him.
The Ferrari pilot said, "No, I have not followed the 6 hour race quite long ... I have read the results and the win is always the best way to start a new project, I think you have proved yourself as competent, I do not think it is something to prove any more in this respect." said.
