However, in my opinion we had a pretty good qualifying session, “said Sebastian Vettel, quoting from Motorsport on Sunday (4/14). “From our side, I was quite happy because the car was successfully upgraded, but it was not entirely happy. It looks like it can still be developed a little more, “added the 31-year-old driver. Sebastian Vettel still has not been able to record a victory in F1 2019. While at the same point last season, he has packed two wins at F1 in the Australian and Bahrain GP 2018.
