Sebastian Vettel after discouraging performance at the 70th Anniversary GP at Silverstone after he admitted he has “run out of answers” to explain his struggles.

To turn his fortunes, Ferrari are giving the German a new chassis for this weekend at Barcelona after finding a small fault.

Vettel failed to score points for the second time this time at Silverstone , while teammate Charles Leclerc pushed his way to fourth.

The start for Vettel made his life hard when he hit the kerb at turn 1 where he spun the car and sending him to the bottom of the pack.

Following a research at the factory, Ferrari found an issue with the chassis caused by an impact and have opted to change it ahead of Barcelona, but stressed they don’t think the issue wasn’t fundamental.

This circuit is quite different to Silverstone and I am curious to find out how the car will feel here“-Sebastian Vettel

The teams and Vettel know Barcelona very well, having completed thousands of miles at the venue during testing, and that should help the German hit the ground running from Friday practice.

“When you get to the Barcelona track you already know it will be a race where it’s the small details that make the difference,” said Vettel.

“The teams and drivers all know this track very well and that’s why, right from the start of Friday free practice, you can work on fine-tuning the car.

“This circuit is quite different to Silverstone and I am curious to find out how the car will feel here.

“We can expect very high temperatures and so it will be important to find a set-up that allows you to have good speed without causing excessive tyre wear.”
