Playing the joker: Sebastian Vettel


Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - Italian Grand Prix - Qualifying Day - Monza, Italy

SV: “Yeah, we were waiting for Lewis. I think he was trying to finish his hair.”

LH: “I was!”

Vettel explains what he and Kimi Raikkonen were talking about in the pit lane after qualifying at Monza

“To sum it up, it’s fairly simple, it’s the best second place I ever had. The emotions on the podium is incredible. If we take this away from the calendar for any shitty money reasons I think you are basically ripping our hearts out. We are here, we are racing and this makes it so much more worthwhile. It’s what we’re here for. You stand on the grid, you look to the left, you look to the right, people are just happy to be part of it and it makes our day. So, simple as that. It’s incredible.”

Vettel sits on the fence when it comes to whether he wants the Italian Grand Prix to stay on the calendar
