The German finished tenth after touching the Spaniard at turn 3 of the Red Bull Ring, but he is glad he only made a spin.
Sebastian Vettel had problems with the oversteer of the Ferrari SF1000 who piloted in the Austrian GP and finished tenth in the race after touching Carlos Sainz at curve 3 of Red bull ring. The German explained the incident that he starred in with the Spanish, precisely who will replace him in the Cavallino Rampante in 2021, and was glad that he had just spun.
“What I wanted was to stay close to the two cars in front of me. Charles defended his position and Carlos came in aggressive, I imagine looking for an open line to try on the back straight. I stayed in the middle, I tried to avoid contact as much as I could, I blocked when I played the piano and lost the car from behind, and I spun. But I was suffering a lot, overall, “said Vettel.
He added: “I have only had one competition test with this one and it was not a good race, I have made them better in the past. It is good to have another race here this weekend to confirm that the car does not behave like this normally, it was happy in the tests and the car seemed better in the corners. “
On the other hand, Charles Leclerc assured that he had one of his best races, after advancing from seventh place to second. “I did not lose focus even though the first part of the race was very boring for us. We made the most of what there was and in the end it compensated us. But I suffered a lot in the highlights,” he concluded.
