Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc met the media today in the paddock at Albert Park, the circuit which hosts the opening round of the 2019 season, the Australian Grand Prix on Sunday.
Sebastian Vettel said he is set for the new season: “We are more prepared than last year, our car seems to work fine but having said that, it is difficult to do better than last year as we won. Obviously this is the first race of the year and you’re normally a bit nervous as you don’t know exactly where you are. At this point I think we are all hunters and all hunted, but hopefully going away from here, I will be in the position of the hunted.”
Charles Leclerc reiterated what he had said previously, prior to his Scuderia Ferrari debut. “Obviously, I can’t wait to get out on track to see where we really stand,” said the Monegasque driver. “As I said before, I don’t think I’ll let myself feel too excited about it, even if I am honoured to be driving a Ferrari. I am here to do well, I want to concentrate on myself and will work with the team to get the most out of the car.”
Catch all the action as the build up begins for the Australian Grand Prix - Tomorrow’s two free practice sessions start at 12:00 and 16:00 local time (02:00 and 06:00 CET.)
