Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari is 'quite far away' from Mercedes at the Italian Grand Prix and that the squad is simply focused on unlocking more pace in its SF15-T.

Vettel was third quickest during Friday practice at Monza but his best time was three-quarters of a second adrift of Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.

"It was a solid day for us, we had no issues with the car and we’ve got quite a lot of running which is always positive," said Vettel.

"The qualifying here will be very important: overtaking is possible with so long straights and this always helps, but still the first corner is very tight and the higher up you are the easiest it is.

"The first two cars are quite far away unfortunately, maybe we can get a bit closer tomorrow and we’ll see what happens in the race. The focus now is on the car and on how to find a few tenths for tomorrow as we’re not entirely happy."
