Vettel in these hours is preparing for the world championship debut in Austria: “It is not a mystery that we are all extremely eager to get back on track – he explained – because for a long time now we have really stopped. At the beginning we took advantage of the break, since usually we are always around the world and we have little time for our families and friends, but the time has come to go back to racing. The Austrian track is like a carousel that turns very fast, but I like it a lot, also because it competes in the high ground and I love the mountains, I am ready to give my best, even if it will not be the same without the fans to support us “.
