Sebastian Vettel is positive about the way the season has begun but feels he could have had more than the two victories he’s had in the opening five races of the year so far.

The Scuderia Ferrari driver leads the Drivers’ Championship heading into the Monaco Grand Prix, but despite his two wins in Australia and Bahrain and runners-up spots in the other races, he still feels the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team are the ones to beat, with the German outfit ahead of his team in the Constructors’ Championship.

Despite this though, Vettel is confident they can continue to have a strong campaign, and with fifteen races of the year remaining, anything can happen in both championships.

“I think we’ve had a strong package so far,” said Vettel. “But Mercedes is doing a very good job and they are still the ones we have to beat.

“We had a good start to the season, but we are not happy to be behind; we want to be ahead of course. We could have won more races, but we have a long season ahead of us. We have a strong car so that I am not that worried.

“I think we’ve got the points we deserve so far, but other people just did a better job in some races. However, we always try to do our best. Sometimes it feels easier, at other times harder, but if you can keep it together, then it is possible. I am happy with what we have but we still want to improve.”
