VETTEL VISIBLY DISAPPOINTED AFTER QUALIFYING

Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari “should’ve been smarter” about when it sent him out on track in Italian Grand Prix qualifying as he was consigned to a “bitter” Q1 exit.

Though he largely hadn’t gelled as well with the recalcitrant SF1000 as team-mate Charles Leclerc, Vettel had almost avoided the ignominy of a Q1 elimination, but failing to improve late on in Monza qualifying consigned him to 17th place on the grid.

Sebastian Vettel is clearly not satisfied after the Ferrari driver had to leave qualifying already after Q1. Vettel drove in the middle of the chaos and was therefore unable to set a better time in his final run. As a result, Vettel has to start the Italian Grand Prix from a seventeenth place.

“I was in the middle of that mess”, Vettel looks back at Ziggo Sport on a chaotic last run in Q1. “It didn’t work out anyway, so there was no point in setting a time. The car was okay. Q2 would have been feasible. Everyone went faster, but we didn’t get a second run through all the chaos”, the German looks back.

“It was a short day like this”

Vettel went into qualifying with a good feeling. “The plan was to drive a clean lap,” continues the 33-year-old driver at Sky Sports. “That didn’t work out. I think we should have gone out later, but it is what it is. It was a short day like this”, says a visibly disappointed Vettel.
