The Scuderia Ferrari was more or less in the dispute of the Grand Prix of Australia. The start of the race was absolutely stellar for both pilots, that desbancaron the Mercedes to lead the test. Unfortunately for them, things would rapidly begin to go wrong, and the strategy of the Italian team of mount superblandos front to the means of the Mercedes after the red flag did not contribute to at all.
And saw Sebastian Vettel these first laps: “I Was very happy to see that I had a better output that the two cars in front of me, reminded me of Hungary in the past year. It was great to see that Kimi did, so since then we dictate the pace. The red flag didn’t give us, but, to be fair, the most important thing is that Fernando and Esteban were good. Stop the race was the right decision”.
“Naturally, the expectations are higher when you’ve had a season strong last year and want to reduce the difference. Yesterday we were a little further back, and now more near. In general, it has been a great career, I have riding background up to the end, but we would have liked to get something more today”.
The race ended much earlier for Kimi Räikkönen. The finn was driving in the fourth when a mechanical problem made him lose power and forced him to retire. In the output came to be second. “Today we’ve had a good first part of race, but in a moment I began to lose power and had to retire. I don’t know that it has happened, exactly, and I don’t think the problem has to do with the engine, because it still worked. Has due be another thing. It is a very unfortunate thing for the whole team”.
“After the tests, we had the idea that we should be pretty good. The sabbath was a day of fun, with conditions and circumstances which are very rare, so that we knew that the difference in classification was not real. The car has been driven well, it is fast and I had a good feeling, but we need to finish the races. We still have work to do”.
