GP Austria: Ferrari can’t find their place on a Friday “problematic”


Although moderately positive, the results of the free practice sessions that Ferrari has obtained this Friday are better than the sensations transmitted by the team. And is that, beyond being able to complete a few fast laps, the barrage of water that fell in the first minutes of the second session has prevented the carrying out of any attempt of simulation of the race.

Both drivers, in addition, had problems of a different nature. Sebastian Vettel, that you will lose five positions on the grid in this race, was third in the first round and fourth in the second. The German rider ended the day in the gravel after a sudden departure of the track in turn 3 in the last few minutes of the second session.

Vettel downplayed the incident, explained the causes of the same, commented that the operation of the car turned out to your liking, and even took time to share their impressions about the football match of the quarterfinals of the european Championship that Germany will play against Italy.

“it Has been a day decent. we don’t have too clear where we are, because we have not had a lot of shooting by the weather, especially in the afternoon, but in general the car seems to be going well. I’ve had a problem with the distribution of the brake when I trompeado at the end of the second session. I have been caught by surprise, but it doesn’t matter too much, I’ve only lost a couple of minutes, and in the end has not led to much difference”.

¿My plans for tomorrow? Surely I will see the football game with the team. Italy is playing stronger than expected, and Germany is also quite strong, so it should be a good game”.

Kimi Räikkönen also not escaped the problems, when you suffer a off the track at high speed, like its companion, only the gravel was able to brake and avoid an impact against the barriers, in the first few minutes of the second session, seconds before the storm inundase the third sector. The finn could only manage eighth in these trainings, after finishing the morning in fourth place.

Räikkönen did not think that the not being able to roll with high loads today is something that will affect them in excess if you manage to complete a simulation tomorrow, but believes the team still have some unknowns about its performance:

it Has been a day a problem, but in general I’ve had good sensations. In the morning we managed to make a few batches, and in the afternoon we did not do many laps because of the conditions of the time and never get to make a simulation of classification appropriate”.

“The day could have been much better, the situation now is a little unknown, but is not too bad, either. There is No reason to begin now to ask ourselves where we are, we still have the morning session to know, and I’m sure that will go well”.
