Post-race press conference – Australian GP - Pt.1

Do you think it was just the conditions, the track temperatures or are you seriously worried about the pace of Lotus and Ferrari?

Sebastian Vettel:
No, I'm not worried. I have to admit sometimes that other people are faster. I think we can be very happy today. We had a great qualifying session this morning and this afternoon unfortunately didn't quite work the way we would have liked but it's a long season, a long way ahead of us, so good points to start. Surely we wanted a little bit more but there's no reason to be disappointed.

Q:
You didn't win the first race of 2010 or 2012 but you went on to win those championships, so I guess it's not the end of the world?

Sebastian Vettel:
Yeah, I think there are always statistics that can work for you or work against you but at this stage… it was very good fun today, tricky to manage the tyres, but I'm very happy to be on the podium here, it's always a nice grand prix so looking forward to next week.

Q:
One quick word with our winner Kimi Raikkonen: Kimi, you lead the world championship. You had two years away rallying, you came back and won a race last year did a great job but here you are leading the championship again. How does that feel?

Kimi Raikkonen:
It feels good but it's only after one race. It doesn't really change our aim and our work for this year. Definitely we are happy with the win but there is an awful lot to still do to try to win the championship. We seemed to have a good car here and hopefully it works well in the next races also.
