Not surprisingly, Sebastian Vettel revealed that Ferrari was in trouble in the second sector on the Spa circuit.
The layout of Spa-Francorchamps is favorable to Ferrari thanks to its long straights, but the second more sinuous sector could be expensive for the Italian team in the race since it is Red Bull who has the advantage here.
Sebastian Vettel is well aware of this weak point and ensures that the Scuderia will work hard to try to find rhythm in this sector in particular before the race scheduled Sunday in Belgium and this, even if the Italian team dominated this first day with more than eight tenths ahead in EL2 on Mercedes and more than a second on Red Bull.
"It was a positive day and it's great to be back in the car, especially on a track like this. The feeling from the cockpit was good, but I think there is still room for improvement. " explains Vettel.
"Let's not forget that we are only Friday and that it will become serious until tomorrow afternoon and then Sunday. "
"On a fast lap, the performance was good, but the race does not last a lap, so we have to work on improving our racing pace, especially in the second sector. "
"In today's two sessions, we slipped a little too much into the middle sector. It will be important for the race to optimize the behavior of the tires. We still have work to do tomorrow. "
