Minor error limits Vettel to fourth

By on Saturday, November 24, 2012

Champion elect Sebastian Vettel has admitted that a couple of mistakes in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix cost him track position.

Vettel made an error in his first run in Q3 and could only manage fourth.

"I've just come out of qualifying knowing I could have done a little bit better. I'm keen to go back now and look at the data and see where I wasn't quick enough", he said.

"Q3 was not 100 per cent perfect. Q2 was quite good for us. The first run in Q3 was not good for me as I did a mistake going into Turn 4. The second run I was pretty happy with it but it wasn't quick enough", he added.

Vettel remains optimistic regarding the race.

"Obviously Mark was a bit quicker, but I think we are in good shape and we've competitive all weekend".
