Sebastian Vettel praised the recovery carried out by his Ferrari team as he finished on the podium at the European Grand Prix after initial struggles during practice.

Vettel languished in eighth place on Friday before Ferrari made gains on Saturday, culminating in Vettel securing fourth on the grid, which became third following Sergio Perez's penalty.

Vettel maintained his position at the start before moving ahead of Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo to finish in second position, behind Mercedes' Nico Rosberg.

"It was a great job for us today," said Vettel, after taking his fifth podium finish of the season.

"Already by the end of yesterday the car was coming alive. We were struggling a bit on Friday, but to see where we are now, it’s a great recovery. It’s our second, second place in a row.

"We’re two times in a row on the podium now after Canada, which is great, scoring some good points. I think the pace is there, the car is good and we’re coming along."
