Vettel holds Red Bull faith

Defending world drivers’ champion Sebastian Vettel (4/1 Chinese GP outright) believes Red Bull will come good ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend.

The German has made a slow start to the 2012 Formula One campaign, having dominated the early stages of last season and is looking for an improved result when he takes the track in Shanghai.

Vettel (3/1 World Drivers’ Championship outright) had to settle for second place in the opening race this term in Melbourne and came 11th in Malaysia, after an incident with HRT’s Narain Karthikeyan hindered his chances of taking the chequered flag in Sepang.

The 24-year-old has been doing work with the Red Bull team over the recent break and believes the Milton Keynes-based outfit can come back stronger in China for the race on Sunday.

Vettel wrote on his Red Bull blog: “I admit, the first two races weren’t exactly perfect but they weren’t that bad either. We proved we can able to compete with the strongest teams and that’s very important.

“When you get a mishap like the one I had in Malaysia, however, well then even we are helpless – but that’s just how F1 works.

“We now have 18 more races ahead of us and we will do all we can to defend our titles.”
