Vettel targeting Q3 as he praises step forward for Aston Martin

Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel has said he's aiming to make it into Q3 again, with the team's new upgrades representing a clear step forward.

Sebastian Vettel has said he intends to fight for a Q3 appearance again this weekend, with the German driver praising the updates brought along by the team for the Spanish GP.

Vettel received the upgrades to the AMR21 this weekend, a race later than Lance Stroll received the aerodynamic upgrades that are aimed at helping the team recover some of the rear downforce losses that have plummeted them down the order.

The German finished Friday practice in 11th place, 0.7 seconds away from the front running time set by the Mercedes duo, and the Aston Martin driver was suitable happy as he finally seems to finding the car a more comfortable place to be.

"I think it's fair to say that was probably was our best Friday, I was happier with it, with the car," Vettel told media, including RacingNews365.com.

"It's obviously different track conditions, but in general, I felt much more at home. So, yeah, it seems to improve. Obviously, it's very tight. It's hard to say where we are going to be tomorrow. But I think we need to look overnight what else we can find and then, hopefully, we can squeeze a couple of extra tenths."

Asked whether he could feel the benefits of the new aerodynamic parts that are aimed to bringing back some rear stability to the car, Vettel said it's an obvious improvement.

"Yeah, absolutely. I think it's a step forward," Vettel explained.

"So it's good to tick that off. And now, as I said, we try and improve the package where we are now. It feels very tight. So everything we can find will work in our favor. It's a long race as well as tough on the tyres. So lots of stuff to look forward to."

Having made Q3 last time out at the Portuguese GP, Vettel said it's the aim again for this weekend.

"I think that's sort of the region we are targeting for," he explained.

"I think if everything goes well then we might get in that region. But it's going to be very, very tight. There's a lot of cars fighting for these spots. So we just look at ourselves what we can do better for tomorrow and then that's maximizing our chance for Q3."
