Ferrari “Should Be Better Than This” – Vettel

By: Francis Joseph

Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari “should be better” than it showed in qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix after rival Mercedes caused a surprise in locking out of the front row.

Ferrari had headed to the F1 season opener as clear favourite after a very strong winter testing programme at Barcelona.

But Mercedes turned the tables on the Italian team with a surprise step up in form as Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas took the top two positions on the grid with Vettel down in third.

Vettel said afterwards that he never expected such form from Mercedes, but has faith that Ferrari’s SF90 is quicker than it has showed in Melbourne.

“I am certainly surprised, I think everybody is, probably even themselves,” said the German.

“I think yesterday we didn’t have a good day, and today felt better. But in terms of gap and pace it was very similar.”
