The battle for pole in Interlagos: Vettel still has work to do

Sao Paulo –

Small screws become independent in the Ferrari cockpit from Sebastian Vettel. The loose foreign object on the first day of practicing the Formula 1 World Champion four times at the Brazilian Grand Prix but not really a big problem.

In the war against K. morning. in the constructor championship, Vettel prefers to set his red race car better. "The car is okay, but not good. So we still have to work," said Heppenheimer, who also experimented with the bottom of his car at Ferrari. Optimal voting for qualifications (18.00 CET) is of course important for 31-year-old players. Because Vettel wanted to prevent the next Mercedes title party at Autódromo José Carlos Pace.

55 points are silver arrows before the race before the season race before the Scuderia. A total of 86 counters will be given. If Vettel and his stable rivals Kimi Raikkonen don't score at least 13 points on Mercedes in Interlagos, Silver Arrows will be able to cheer for the fifth time in a row over the team title.

"The last race really helped us, because we learned a lot about cars," Brazil's winner last year Vettel said after the third fastest time. "We're still trying to get sharper images and understand a little more about what's happening."

Lewis Hamilton and his team mate, Valtteri Bottas, pole-sitter in Brazil in 2017, who were crowned World Champions for the fifth time in Mexico just two weeks ago, are on the right track. The Duo Mercedes is undefeated at the end of the warm-up.

"The car feels better than in Mexico. But we always work through a number of problems. The speed is not too bad," said Hamilton, who could only win in 2016 in São Paulo.

The question mark must once again stand behind the rubber. Mercedes had to fight in the last two races again with a significant ban. On Saturday and Sunday the temperature will rise again. "It can be difficult to tire," Vettel said. (AP)
