Vettel: Admits the result may not be in his hands

Sebastian Vettel concedes his German GP result may not be in his hands given Mercedes' advantage and Red Bull's struggles.

The reigning World Champion is returning home next weekend for the German Grand Prix, a race he won last season.

This year, though, the German edition of the F1 World Championship will be held at the Hockenheim circuit and not the Nurburgring.

Vettel's best result at the Hockenheimring was a third-placed finish at the 2010 grand prix.

"I always enjoy the atmosphere at the Hockenheimring," said the 27-year-old.

"When you arrive at track in the morning the circuit's already filled with fans and when you're in the car you can see lots of German flags in the grandstands.

"The signing session is always very busy too. It's those little things I really enjoy about Hockenheim. We get a lot of encouragement.

"During practice you know that the fans in the grandstands are there to support you and stand by you, no matter what."

The Red Bull racer, though, admitted that his chances in Germany may be out of his hands.

"Of course you want to give as much as possible back to the fans, but sometimes it's not in your hands," he added. "However we will attack at the weekend and give everything."
