Vettel: We should have beaten Red Bull


Sebastian Vettel expressed his disappointment of not beating Red Bull to second place on the Constructors’ Championship.

Adding to his disappointment, Vettel was also upset Ferrari weren’t able to compete with Mercedes as they failed to secure a single race win throughout the season.

Finishing 70-points behind Red Bull, the German felt that the Scuderia had a stronger package that the Austrian-based outfit, which made it even more frustrating.

“It has been up and down this year – not as good as expected and it could have been a lot better,” said Vettel.

“Points-wise we didn’t manage to score enough at the beginning of the year.

“Towards the end, we found ourselves in a very tight battle with Red Bull. But overall we had a stronger package and we should’ve finished second in the constructors’.

“The biggest disappointment was that we didn’t fight Mercedes.”

However, the quadruple World Champion remains confident Ferrari can turn things around next year.

“A lot of things have happened in the background that should make the team and should make us stronger for next year,” he said.
