Vettel says he wasn't "doing the best job" in practice

25 August 2017

Lewis Hamilton has wasted no time dispelling rumours that Sebastian Vettel will be joining him at Mercedes next year.

Mercedes is favoured this weekend due to the power-sensitive nature of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit but Ferrari will be encouraged by the gap to Hamilton from the afternoon's qualifying simulations.

Raikkonen set a 1:45.502 on ultrasoft tyres in the final moments of an incident-packed session, but was only five hundreths of a second quicker than Hamilton in P2, who set his best time on the slower soft tyres.

Asked at a media conference ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix if Vettel was his best team-mate, Raikkonen responded: "Sure he is". The consensus from the races contested so far, is that Ferrari have favoured their championship contending driver in all instances where the Finn has been in positions to win.

Cape Town - Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is wary of the favourites' tag being put on the Silver Arrows ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix. "The auto was feeling good from the get-go and the set-up changes we made were in the right direction".

When asked if the knowledge of having his place on the grid secure for next year eases the pressure on him, Raikkonen replied: "I don't think so".

"We were not allowed to do anything for two weeks, but now our engineers are in demand", he said.

"Stuff that we can influence, I can influence by driving differently". I want it just as much if not more as everyone else this year. With the prospect of rain mixing up proceedings for the grand prix, teams spent a long time working with the ultra-soft tyre to prepare for the possibility of a short stint in the dry. It's clear that there are certain tracks where the characteristics of the circuit suits our vehicle better or theirs works better.
