Sebastian Vettel was happy with his third place on the grid for the British Grand Prix despite finding himself out-qualified by both his championship rival Lewis Hamilton and his Scuderia Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen on Saturday.

During the first segment of qualifying at Silverstone, Vettel complained about traffic, but despite this was comfortably able to advance, and he feels that the team have improved the SF70H significantly throughout the weekend.

Vettel will be aiming to move forward on Sunday as he defends a twenty-point advantage in the championship standings over Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team’s Hamilton, although he would do well to deny the Briton a fourth consecutive British Grand Prix triumph.

“We are quite happy with the result and our performance was good,” said Vettel. “I think it will be tough tomorrow considering that Mercedes has been very quick for the whole weekend.

“Our car today was good and felt amazing, so overall I am happy. The track was not really wet and it was good fun to drive, I just found a bunch of cars ahead of me in my last run, but otherwise I think we improved the car a lot over the weekend, also in qualifying trim, and that’s what really counts.”
