Formula 1: Vasseur with a clear warning – “No guarantees!”

The start of the new Formula 1 season could not have been better for Ferrari. After four races, the team from Maranello already has 120 points to its name. In Australia, Watifosi managed to get two victories. However, for team boss Frederic Vasseur, this is not a reason to cancel. On the contrary: the French put the brakes on the fun!

Last year, Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz had to struggle more with their cars. Tire management in particular caused many problems for the team before the new season. This is another reason why Vasseur warns against making hasty decisions.

Formula 1: Vasseur Text – “No Guarantee”

“For me the question remains if this development can be seen on any type of racetrack and under any conditions. Let’s take China: we will have a completely different asphalt there,” the Ferrari team boss said.

The Grand Prix in China will be unique: Formula 1 last stopped in 2019. From 2020 to 2023, no Formula 1 race was held at the Shanghai International Circuit due to the corona epidemic. This is also why Vasseur says: “Shanghai will be a good test for us. “So far we have only driven the car once in good conditions.”

Ferrari wants to continue its good form

Vasseur is still fighting for the race in China: “Now we have to make sure that we make progress in the final practice to get a good starting position for the race.” In Japan, Carlos Sainz managed only fourth place in qualifying, while Leclerc managed only eighth place. It’s too little if you want to risk the Red Bull pilots.

In order for Ferrari to reach more than third and fourth place in China, there needs to be an increase in performance, especially in qualifying. After recent positive results, the team from Italy travels to the Far East with a lot of confidence.
