Vettel and teammate Charles Leclerc led the charge with authority in Friday’s second free practice, disproving those who hinted at another disappointing showing from the Scuderia after its underperformance in Austin.
For all the speculation surrounding the House of Maranello and its engine power after the release of the FIA’s latest technical directives, Ferrari’s strength and straight-line speed appeared intact at Interlagos.
Vettel adamant Ferrari ‘didn’t lose any engine power’
Looking ahead, Vettel pointed to more progress in Saturday’s third free practice session.
“There are a lot of small things and we need to make sure we nail those,” said the German.
“The car was decent today, but we can improve. I’m confident of a step forward.
“In the race it will be difficult because others are quite a bit faster than us but that’s pretty much in line with the picture we’ve seen in the last couple of races so I’m not surprised.
“I think we can work on ourselves and be in a better shape for tomorrow. We do our homework from now and see where it takes us.”
