London, Sep 7: Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel has said that despite a dominant performance in practice, he is expecting a tight battle in Italian Grand Prix qualifying, after he was 0.623 seconds clear of teammate Mark Webber, in second practice at Monza.
According to the BBC, Vettel expressed that it would be close in qualifying with many cars within a couple of hundredths of a second.
He said first practice, in which only 0.188secs separated the top four, was potentially more representative.
Vettel was fourth in the first session, behind Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and the second Mercedes of Nico Rosberg, the report said.
The driver said that even though his car was great, there were still two or three corners where one slides a bit more than one would like, adding that he would be lying if he said it was a disaster. (ANI)
