Vettel still searching for answers after a "mixed day" in Spain

Vettel still searching for answers after a "mixed day" in Spain

Sebastian Vettel has said "things were making a bit more sense" but confessed he is still searching for answers as to why Ferrari team-mate Charles Leclerc has a pace advantage over him.

Vettel was given a new chassis for the Spanish Grand Prix after a "small fault" was found on his 70th Anniversary Grand Prix car.

The fault was said not to have affected the pace of the car, but Vettel appeared much more comfortable in practice on in Barcelona, finishing with a time comparable to Leclerc.

However, a congested midfield meant that a gap of three tenths between Leclerc and the German in practice two resulted in a difference of six positions, with Leclerc sixth and Vettel12th.

Asked if the new chassis had provided him with the answers he had been seeking, Vettel said: "Not all the answers that you want to get but I think overall things were making a bit more sense.

“Friday it’s always a bit difficult if you’re trying a of things and so did we today so we’ll see when things calm down hopefully tomorrow.”

Evaluating his day, Vettel added: “[It was] A bit of a mixed day. It was generally a bit better one lap pace today. In the afternoon I was struggling a bit more to put the laps together. We should be in a better place, so lets see what we get tomorrow.

“We’ve tried a couple of things and I think we know a little bit more for tomorrow.”
