Sebastian Vettel says there is always something to be learnt with each lap in the Ferrari SF70H as the team positions itself as a contender for this year's F1 world championship following two wins from three.
In the year that could see Ferrari notch up a full decade since its last title win if it doesn't clinch the 2017 crown, Vettel has gotten the Scuderia
off to a marvellous start with two wins from three races, each against Mercedes and from losing positions.
With Vettel's typically meticulous style of development prompting him to stay in Bahrain with the team for two days of F1 testing – one day spent testing tyres for Pirelli and another in his race-winning SF70H – to uncover more pace from the machine.

Though technical issues hampered Vettel during his time in the car, he says there was still plenty to learn from the package
“Every lap that you do helps,” he said. “Obviously the cars are still quite new to everyone, so are the tires so every lap that you do will help you and it's always nice to drive.”
“I don't think the championship positioning changes anything, but first of all it is always nice to drive the car. Second I think it's always useful to learn something. The conditions were fairly stable, the wind sometimes was quite strong and made it more difficult but I think we had similar conditions to the race weekend which was very good.”
