Sebastian Vettel believes his Scuderia Ferrari has “big potential” this weekend at the Italian Grand Prix.

The Autodromo Nazionale Monza is a sea of red with the tifosi out in full force to support the Italian team, but Free Practice 1 was wet with Vettel only completing four laps due to a problem with the car.

“Today it’s been a mixed day as the morning session didn’t go smoothly, but in the afternoon it got better,” said Vettel.  “The balance of the car is not perfect yet, but I believe we can work on it for tomorrow as the car seems to be working well.

“This morning we had a little problem with the car; I wanted to run, but we had to check the gearbox first. However, it was good we could run in the afternoon.”

The afternoon session was dry but Vettel made a little error in the final corner and had a trip through the gravel trap but survived to finish the session fastest and is hoping the team can improve thecar overnight ahead of qualifying tomorrow.

“In P2 I slid off at Parabolica, but I managed to avoid touching the barrier, but I had just one slight nudge and came away with minor damage to the rear wing which had to be replaced,” said the German.  “Apart from that, the car was fine.

“I am not entirely happy yet, but I know we can still improve because our car has big potential.  I think we can do better tomorrow as the package is good, so we’ll see.

“We’ll keep doing our homework.”
