After FP2 concluded, Sebastian Vettel shared his thoughts about Friday’s proceedings, saying that the conditions in Malaysia could suit Ferrari ahead of Sunday's race.
Still trailing behind Mercedes on the times, the German was nonetheless pleased with the pace showed by his Scuderia car after he posted the third fastest time of the second free practice session.
Winning the race last year, the quadruple World Champion is hoping to get off the mark this season as Ferrari are still searching for their first Grand Prix victory of the season.
"We had a decent day, testing quite a lot of things. Historically we seemed to do well when its warm and today was quite warm.," he told Sky F1.
"We try to be competitive, our pace wasn't too bad from what i was told. If that's the name of the game, that the hot conditions suit us, then it might be a good thing.
"I hope that we can progress and improve but whatever comes up we have to take it.
"Our target is to win a race, or more than one race if we have a chance, but ultimately it comes down to getting the best out of our package and to see where it takes us."
