Singapore GP - Post-qualifying press conference - Pt.2

Was I surprised at the time I could do? Not really, no, because I knew the track was getting better and I saw what my teammate did in Q1, pushing, so no, I wasn't surprised.

Q: (Don Kennedy - Hawke's Bay Today)
Sebastian, you've won the last two races here, you're on pole and you're probably anything from half a second to a second faster than everybody else. Do you think now we can expect you to be more confident about not only winning this race tomorrow but also the championship?

Sebastian Vettel:
I think it was quite close. Whether... I think the track ramped up, whether we could have gone with that we don't know because we didn't do the run but I'm sure we had a little bit of time in hand. But yeah, for tomorrow I think the car feels fine, the race pace looked very strong on Friday, yesterday, so yeah, if all goes well we should have a very good chance to get a strong result but to be honest with you, I try... I'm not just trying... I do keep it very simple. I've got to do my homework. Just because of the fact that the last couple of races were pretty good doesn't mean that there's a guarantee that this one will be good again and the next one and so on and so forth. I think it's the wrong strategy to lean back and see what the others can do. You might get surprised, so we keep going flat out, I keep pushing myself 100 percent. The target tomorrow is to win, not only for the championship but more so, to be honest with you, because it's such a nice race. That means a lot to me. As I touched on, the challenge around here is one of the biggest we face all year so that's why it means a lot to finish this race on the podium and even better if you can win it. You don't have to be a genius (to work out) if you win, you score more points than the others and it feeds on itself.
