Vettel hoping rain might help his race after difficult qualifying

Sebastian Vettel endured another tough day in qualifying for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, but the German is hoping that a wet race might help him when he lines up in 13th place on Sunday.

Sebastian Vettel is hoping that rain will hit the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix after he qualified down in 13th place during a difficult Saturday.

The Aston Martin driver did not make it out of Q2 and now faces a tight battle in the midfield. Whilst Vettel admits that he still needs to gain extra confidence in the car, he also believes that some wet weather could help him out in the race.

"We are obviously right in the midfield, and it's very tight," Vettel told RacingNews365.com and other select media after qualifying. "So a couple of tenths can make a big difference.

"I was happier with the feel of the car, but still missing that last bit of confidence. Overall, I think it's getting better. As I said, it's very tight, so we will see tomorrow.

"Maybe we'll have a bit of rain that can help us."

Vettel was outperformed by teammate Lance Stroll during qualifying, with the Canadian reaching Q3 and ending the session in 10th place. Whilst Vettel feels that things are improving, he knows he will have to be patient when it comes to adapting to the car.

"I'm not a very patient guy, so I don't want to wait," the four-times world champion explained. "But it is getting a lot better.

"On a track like this in particular, you need the ultimate confidence to extract everything and I'm not yet there, but it's only the second race, so I guess I have to be a bit more patient."

Vettel thinks there are reasons why he is taking longer to adapt to the Aston Martin than previous cars he has raced.

"The car is quite different to what I, let's say, was used to in the past. There are a couple of things that nowadays, like the tyres and how you set up the car etc, that can make quite a big difference.

"So that's why I think it's taking maybe a bit longer than normal. Obviously in all fairness as well, it's for the ultimate tenths that you're fighting for in the midfield, and you see the consequence straightaway."
