(cafetheology.org) – Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel surprised with the strong performance at Spa-Francorchamps. For experts had expected the Scuderia after the high on the downhill course in Hungary again on the Silverstone level. "In Silverstone we were on average almost a second away," confirms Sebastian Vettel. "So we're on the right track." And he directs Mercedes, where one looks with respect towards Singapore: "I do not think we have to fear any route." Ferrari responded to the silver arrow domination in Silverstone with two update packages: In Hungary they brought new ones Bardgeboards, in Belgium a new front suspension, a new front wing and a reworked underbody. Both packages have not missed their impact. But is the comparison with Silverstone allowed? "Sure, it's fast courses," says Kimi Raikkonen. "But we also had problems in Silverstone because it was windy, which is not our strength." Both riders are convinced that the car has clearly improved since Silverstone. The Ferrari driver also concedes that the Scuderia was also able to compete in Spa-Francorchamps last year. But then he says, "We are pleased with how it went this weekend, and we have definitely taken a step." Vettel also does not believe that since the UK Grand Prix Ferrari has been one second per lap on Mercedes Has caught up. "We just had a bad weekend." "We've improved the car especially in the race, but Mercedes was a bit better this weekend, but the track is not enough for us." Vettel does not write Bottas either "If Valtteri wins next week and we two fail, then everything is different again." Sebastian VettelAnd so Vettel comes seven points ahead of the Ferrari home game in Monza. If Lewis Hamilton wins the title, then the Briton will be the championship for the first time this season. "We still have a lot of races – there can still be a lot happening." That is why he does not write Valtteri Bottas yet Although the Mercedes driver is already 41 points behind him after his disappointing fifth place in Belgium. "If he wins next week and we two fail, then everything is different," he relativizes. "That's why it does not matter at the moment."
