We No Longer Have A Circuit To Fear - Sebastian Vettel

Ferrari Driver Sebastian Vettel finished second, behind Lewis Hamilton in the Belgian GP after a heated encounter but despite the his coming second, the race has given his team additional confidence and anticipation for the remaining race this season.

Before the Belgian GP, there had been assumptions that the Mercedes had a speed advantage in high speed circuits while Ferrari's had theirs in the Slow speed circuits but after the race Vettel says his team no longer needs to fear high-speed circuits such as Sepang and Suzuka later in the year.

"I think the positive thing is that we had very good race pace," Vettel said. "It was very difficult to follow in the middle sector but we stayed close and then we benefit in the first and last sector. Overall the car was very good.

"We didn't change too much compared to Silverstone which shows, on the one hand that Silverstone was just a bad weekend but we also improved the car, especially on race pace we are very strong. I mean we were, on average, a second off, or nearly a second off in Silverstone, so it's a big step. I'm very, very happy. I think we are on the right track and I don't think we have a circuit we should fear, going from now."

Lewis Hamilton had reduced the drivers Championship points to 7 which was 14 before the race and will have the Italian GP to finish the european season leveled with leveled points, if a similar performance is displayed by the two.

"I believe we have the best car in terms of overall package. There's still something missing but the guys in Maranello are very motivated. I think we have done the biggest improvement and a big step forward. Now we turn the page on and move on to Monza: let's see what happens there."
