Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel says he is underwhelmed by the upgrade package which Red Bull brought to the German Grand Prix
Vettel was sixth fastest during qualifying at Hockenheim but lamented that upgrades did not aid his progress as much as he'd have liked.
"I don't think as much as we were hoping for," he said of the state of the improvements. "We had an update on the car but it didn't bring us as much as it was supposed to.
"It was generally better than this morning so I was fairly happy, on the last run we just didn't seem to be able to go with the track. I didn't get a smooth lap and didn't improve."
The German also admitted that he was surprised by the pace of Williams, whose two drivers, Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa, will line up from second and third on the grid.
"To be honest I think Williams didn't look as competitive yesterday so they made a big step today which was a bit of a surprise," he said.
"But then again in the last couple of races they have been very strong so I think they will be very strong as well tomorrow. Generally on race pace we look a little bit better than maybe in raw qualifying pace."
