"Testing is limited, but I don't think it is a big advantage to have a day more or less," said Vettel when asked about Alonso skipping the first week of tests and leaving Felipa Massa to do the honours for Ferrari instad. "Jerez is different in that it is a circuit you don't race on so I don't think you miss a lot if you don't test there."
But speaking fo himself, Vettel isn't one for sitting out a test session if there's one going. "I'm excited to get going again, to get back in the car, start testing and then go racing," said Vettel.
"Then, we'll finally find out where we are," he added. "Whether it's quick or not we will see, and then obviously it's up to us to make it reliable so that it survives the whole season."
So don't be too surprised if it turns out that the car in front in F1 turns out to be a Red Bull more often than not - it would hardly be the first time, after all.
