Sebastian Vettel: Victory was not impossible


Sebastian Vettel extends his lead in the world championship standings with second place. He tells Autoblog UK why he is still not completely satisfied.

Sebastian, second place only, but you've increased your championship lead.
Sebastian Vettel: It was a good race for us. It's not the most brilliant of results, because victory was not impossible, but all in all, it's okay.

You can now relax on your summer break and live to fight another day, am I right?
Sebastian Vettel: Firstly, there's still work to do looking into why we lost ground to McLaren and Ferrari in places, and then we must take a break and put things behind us, so that we can be fresh again for a major offensive.

All things considered, were you happier this weekend than you were last time out?
Sebastian Vettel: Absolutely. Our times were much better and I was fastest at times. But in the end, I was only second quickest overall in the race. I wouldn't wish to be too presumptuous, but you should always aim to do your best and finish in first place, when you're on pole.
