Sebastian Vettel after disastrous F1 start: 'I know I can be better'

The Bahrain GP ended in disaster for Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, but he has received no sympathy from former Renault driver Jolyon Palmer. The latest generation of Pirelli tyres have a narrower operating window than before and Vettel couldn't find the sweet spot he was looking for.

"I don't really know at the moment", Hamilton said at press briefing in the Shanghai paddock.

"In Bahrain I was still not very happy", he added.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo won for Red Bull in Shanghai a year ago, from sixth on the starting grid, and while that team has switched from Renault to Honda power they remain competitive.

This weekend is the third round of the Formula 1 season, the Chinese Grand Prix.

Vettel will need to ensure that he irons out all mistakes from his driving from here on, as Ferrari have a steep challenge this season and would do good to rack up the points until they have the dominant auto on the circuit. I don't know but I believe it comes more from a confidence point of view.

Pre-season favourites Ferrari were surprisingly off the pace at Melbourne's Albert Park. I know that I can be better and I know that we have lots of races to show and prove that.

"I think Seb and I, from Barcelona we have two very different driving styles". So hopefully I have a better feeling in the vehicle this weekend. It's normal that you never get the auto that you want so you always have to adapt. "I think it's still very early on in the season and we need to wait for some more races but I was happy with the vehicle I had in the last race and I hope it will stay that way". "Charles is fast, he has proven many times before F1 why he has deserved the place", he said. Bahrain I think the conditions were tricky and everyone was struggling with the wind and so on. I think the normal approach is not changing the way you drive or fundamental things overnight.

Meanwhile, Daniel Ricciardo - victor in Shanghai previous year - believes Renault are heading in the right direction after failing to finish his first two races with his new team. The team have said they would favour Vettel under certain circumstances but Leclerc clearly has no intention of being sidelined. "I could have passed him back on the next straight, but the way I judged it at that point I was going to lose more time and he was going to lose more time, so the race was very long from that point onwards".

"But I also know nowadays people's judgement doesn't go further than a week, forward or backwards".
