Vettel wants Zandvoort banking at more F1 circuits

While engine issues derailed his FP1 at the Dutch Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel bounced back to finish 10th in FP2. The German was pleased with how his afternoon went, while also giving the thumbs up to Zandoort's banked corners.

Sebastian Vettel is a big fan of the banked corners that have been added to Zandvoort, saying he wishes there were more corners like that after Friday's action at the track.

The circuit underwent some major renovations in order to host an F1 race again, including adding banking twice as steep as Indianapolis at Turn 3 and Turn 14.

Although his Friday didn't exactly go to plan, Vettel made it clear that he approves of the new layout.

"It helps that I've been here many years ago and they didn't change too much of the track, which is good news," Vettel told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media.

"The bits they changed, I think they changed to the better. It's very exciting with the banking, it's not quite clear which line to take yet, but we have a little bit more time tomorrow.

"We should have more of that, cambered corners, positive and not off-camber. Off-camber they do [it] for water drainage, but it's very boring, because you lose grip, and that I think looks exciting and feels exciting in the car as well."

Vettel's FP1 session was cut short due to an engine failure, which resulted in a 35-minute stoppage.

Despite the setback, the German was pleased with how the rest of his afternoon went, which has him optimistic heading into Saturday.

"I think, overall, it was a decent afternoon," he said. "We had some catching up to do and I had to get into the rhythm quick.

"We couldn't complete a [flying] lap [due to the red flag] but I think it should be OK tomorrow. We still have some bits that we can improve in the car, and also I feel I'm not yet quite there from a driving point of view.

"So we should be able to make a step. Hopefully the others are not able to do that, and we'll see where we are."
