F1 Canadian GP: Vettel not worried about qualifying struggles repeat

Sebastian Vettel is confident Ferrari can avoid its recent qualifying errors and put the pressure on Mercedes after splitting Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.
Sebastian Vettel is confident Ferrari can avoid its recent qualifying errors and put pressure on Mercedes in Canada after the German driver split pace setter Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Vettel's top time of 1m 14.469s saw him take second overall – two tenths behind Hamilton but almost three-tenths up on Rosberg – and he feels generally satisfied with the progress made on his car with the added boost of a new turbocharger.

The four-time F1 world champion says he is targeting pole position in tomorrow's qualifying and is confident he can avoid Ferrari's mishaps in qualifying at the past two rounds.

In Barcelona and Monaco Ferrari slipped behind both Mercedes and Red Bull in qualifying which has left them trailing in the races.

“In qualifying trim we were pretty happy with the car but not entirely happy with the lap,” Vettel said. “There is a little bit more and we can still improve the car which will help us on Saturday.

"It is true that the last few weekends have not been great for us on Saturday but equally there is nothing wrong so we don't need to be worried.

“I think the car is always very alive here, with the kerbs it is quite a rough track. There are still some things we can improve and we need to work on. Overall the car seems to work, there's nothing wrong and the bits we brought seem to give us what we expected, so that's good news for today.”
