“I tried to make up for that on the outside. But I misjudged myself a bit because the sand was very dusty and I couldn’t really see where I was, ”said the German. “Then I got out too far and lost the rear, so I had to open the steering to keep myself from turning.”
The consequence: “I had to go the long way and almost all the cars passed by. After lap one I was practically at the bottom of the field and I lost everything again from tenth place. The bad start and the bad corner cost us the race today because we could have scored more points. “
The only positive thing for Vettel on Sunday: “In the first stint I knew that we were faster than the cars around us and when we had clear ground, the pace was very good. But of course it was too late by then. “
This still brings Vettel the consolation point.
