Formula 1: Vettel slowed down by wet spots

There was more to it. Although Sebastian Vettel starts tenth in the Turkish GP, the German is “not happy” after qualifying in Istanbul. “There was an opportunity to advance today, so of course I’m not entirely satisfied,” Vettel alludes to team-mate Lance Stroll.
Vettel is two tenths missing in Q2 on his stable mate: While the Canadian moves into the final shootout and is ninth, Vettel has to give up prematurely in eleventh place. In the qualifying duel between the two, Stoll shortened to 7: 9.

“On the parts of the track where it was still wet, I didn’t get along so well today and I found it difficult to find the rhythm. That was a bit of a surprise because I usually feel good there,” said Vettel, explaining the reasons for this the team-internal qualification defeat. The German is self-critical: “I had more difficulties than others. Maybe I chose the wrong line, I have to look at that.”

Vettel did not experience a good qualification in Istanbul.

The slide makes it difficult for Vettel: “I tried everything, but unfortunately it was just not enough to stay in qualifying, so it wasn’t an ideal session. I just lost too much time in the slippery places that I did then could no longer make up, “explains the Heppenheimer.

Even the fact that he has moved up one place on the starting grid due to Lewis Hamilton’s engine penalty does not make the four-time world champion happy on Saturday. “I would prefer to start on the right side, so that’s not such good news,” explains Vettel. Background: The right side of the lane on the start / finish line is on the ideal line and offers significantly more grip when driving off due to the rubber abrasion.

Therefore, Vettel is now expecting a worse start and a difficult race overall: “Maybe we can be a little stronger tomorrow in the race, but realistically our pace is around tenth place.”
