Vettel: It’s good to know we’re going racing again

Sebastian Vettel: Australia is one of the best places we go to...

Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel is looking forward to the Australian Grand Prix next weekend and he believes the Milton Keynes-based outfit has made a 'decent step' with the new RB8.

Vettel was the man to beat in 2011 and blitzed the opposition en-route to successfully retaining his title and he will be bidding to do it all again in 2012, starting with the back-to-back races at Albert Park and Sepang.

“Testing has been busy over the last few weeks and I think we have made a decent step with the car,” confirmed the German. “You never really know where you are though until we get to Melbourne and even then you don't really see what everyone has got until qualifying – so I'm looking forward to getting started.

“Australia and Malaysia are different circuits so they are hard to compare. Australia is not a permanent race track, it's quite bumpy and it's tough for the car. Malaysia is smoother, as it's a permanent race track with fast corners, but both are good tracks and Australia is one of the best places we go to.

“It's good to know we're going racing again, I can't wait to get on the flight and get down under.”

Anti Vettel, We all know Vettel has been driving the best cars for a couple of years now , but you have to give him credit for doing his very best with the tools provided, and wishing which is undoubtedly a great young talent harm because he gives his usual singular finger salute seems extreme. Please do try and get a grip as suggested by PP.
