Vettel pleased with 'useful, if not perfect' test
15 May 2014 – Sebastian Vettel says he is satisfied with the work he carried out at the post-Spanish Grand Prix test.
Although the Red Bull driver lost track time due to Sébastien Buemi's gearbox problem on Tuesday, he was able to rack up 72 laps, running comparisons on the same tyre compounds he used throughout the race weekend.
"The problems on Tuesday made us a bit late out [of the garage] in the morning but the afternoon was productive and we did a lot of laps which, considering the time we had, was good," Vettel reflected.
"We used the tyres that we used last weekend, because we wanted to try to understand the car more. In terms of that I think we have learned a lot, so I would say that it was a useful, if not perfect, day of testing."
Vettel sits fourth in the standings ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, 55 points behind Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton.
