Vettel🗣: Ferrari Not as💪 Strong as Mercedes in the⛈ Wet

  |   F1

Sebastian Vettel feels Ferrari's Formula 1 car is just not as competitive in the wet as Mercedes', after only qualifying fourth for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Ferrari had been on top in dry practice at the Hungaroring, but ended up on row two of the grid when it rained heavily in qualifying.

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas filled the front row for Mercedes, with Kimi Raikkonen third ahead of Vettel - the Ferraris both half a second off the pace.

"Probably we are not as competitive in the wet as we are in the dry, but you know in these conditions anything can happen and obviously, you can see that the gaps were quite big at times," Vettel said.

"I think in the end it came down to the final lap. I pushed quite hard and tried everything.

"Maybe it wasn't the tidiest lap, but it also wasn't awful, so I'm pretty OK with the result. Obviously, we would have liked to have been further up, but that's what we have now."
