Sebastian Vettel: “I think we can be quite happy…”

Sebastian Vettel has played down the significance of Red Bull’s advantage after the German and team mate Mark Webber dominated practice in India.

Vettel topped both sessions today, while Webber backed him up in second in FP2.

“The track improved enormously, at least that’s we found,” said Vettel. “The circuit kept improving, there was quite a lot of grip at the end. I was surprised with the long runs.

“I think we can be quite happy, we didn’t have any major issues. We tested a few things. Now we need to say whether we made progress, and hopefully we can make progress for tomorrow.”

Asked whether he thought it would be a battle between the Red Bull drivers for pole, he said: “I know it’s not between me and him, it’s not between Mark and myself, it’s between all of us. I think Friday is always difficult. It depends on a day like this, on a circuit like that, largely when you were out doing your new tyre run.

“I think the track improvement was quite big, we saw that until the end. I wouldn’t be surprised if tomorrow looked a little bit different. We’ve had worse Fridays, so I’m quite happy.

“I think the benchmark is quite high from last year, so if we can do the same again this year here, that will be a good start. Today is Friday, we’ve got another practice before going into qualifying, I think we’ll focus on that before anything else.”
