Sebastian Vettel is confident that Ferrari can beat Mercedes in Bahrain after the German qualified on the front row of the grid.

Vettel was beaten to pole position by Lewis Hamilton but managed to set a quicker lap time than compatriot Nico Rosberg and Vettel is sure that the squad will take the fight to Mercedes in the race.

"It was a tough session," he said. "At the beginning I didn’t really find the rhythm that I had also in practice but then towards the end, more and more, I think it was getting better.

"I was feeling happier in the car and I felt more comfortable to push. So, for now, very happy for the front row and hopefully tomorrow we can have a good start and a good race from there. I think in the race we are maybe a bit closer, so we will see what happens.

"Lewis said earlier that we [Ferrari] will be difficult to beat and I hope he’s right."
