Although he may have finished fourth from pole position, Sebastian Vettel is pleased that Red Bull learned several crucial aspects about its car during the Canadian Grand Prix. Having attempted to finish second by making a single pit-stop, the Champion elected to limit damage to his result by peeling in again just eight laps before the end.
“It was a difficult race today,” he began. “We found ourselves in third place, quite far away from Lewis (Hamilton). He decided to box again, but Fernando (Alonso) and I took the decision to stay out.
"I felt pretty comfortable on the tyres and obviously we were hoping to get the place back, but as it turned out it was the right thing to go for the second stop…it was a good call considering what you can lose with only eight laps to go.
“It’s easy now to analyse and know everything, but I think we learned a lot today and we’ve seen that races can be interesting until the very last lap. All in all, it was a good weekend. We had a very smooth run up to qualifying and a very good qualifying – in the race we maybe lost some of that edge, but we were there or thereabouts.
“We have another winner today also - I think Lewis deserved to win today, no doubt - but we have learned more and will make step forward in Valencia.”
Vettel has won the last two European Grands Prix on the streets of Valencia.
