United States GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari

NEWS STORY
21/10/2018

Sebastian Vettel: "Today it has been a positive surprise that we could go so fast, especially if we compare our performance with previous events. Obviously, if you are that close to pole position, you want to be ahead, so it's also a shame that with the grid penalty we can't be where we belong. It's true that we came back in good shape today, but there's still a long way to go though, so I can't say tomorrow we are going to win. But I think it will be a close race and I just hope we'll be as strong tomorrow as we were today; then anything can happen."

Kimi Raikkonen: "In the last couple of races we struggled a little bit, but so far this weekend, it has been more normal ; we are more or less where we should be. And we are pretty happy with how things went today. For sure we wanted more, but at least we proved that we are thereabouts. The morning started pretty well straightaway. Obviously there are always things that we hoped to do slightly better or feel better, but with the limited running we had in the dry, it's not that simple. In qualifying the feeling with the different sets of tires was a bit random, and this makes it a bit harder to know when you can push. The wind was changing in a few places and this made it a bit tricky, but generally we have been pretty good. I don't know if my tire choice for tomorrow, starting on the Ultrasofts, will be an advantage or not, we'll find out. We'll try to make a decent start and then see what happens; I think we should have a good chance."
