Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel vows to improve for 2012 F1 season
Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel is determined to make it three straight world championship titles this season
Sebastian Vettel has warned his rivals that he has no intention of resting on his laurels as he bids to secure a third straight world championship title.
The Red Bull driver stormed to his second consecutive world crown last season with 15 poles, 11 victories and 17 podium finishes in a remarkable campaign for the German driver.
But the 24-year-old German driver insists there are plenty of things he would like to improve ahead of the 2012 season, which gets under way at the Australian Grand Prix on 18 March.
“Of course in 2011 we were extremely successful and it was a good season, so we did only very few mistakes,” said Vettel. “But still we sat down and tried to identify where we think we can improve, and we got a couple of points.
“It’s not as if it was a blank sheet, so you would be surprised – we had a couple of pages with things that we can do better, we know we can do better.
“Of course, there were a lot of things that we did well and we try to keep it up and improve them as well but there are a lot of things here and there – small things, details, attention to detail – that you can work on that might make a difference on a Sunday.
“You know we have 20 races, so maybe it helps you only in one out of 20 races, but that might help you to score that one point more that you might need to be on top at the end.”
