Ferrari wanting more from Catalunya

As today is my 34th Birthday I would like to thank all the readers and Scuderia Ferrari Club Adelaide Members for contributing to my passion for Motor Sport Blogging. My passion to blog was helped along by Todd McCandless who is the major shareholder and blogger for www.formula1blog.com and gave me the opportunity to blog for his website on a number of different topics and categories.

Due to Australia's time zone I got to break important stories such as Mark Webbers retirement, Michael Schumacher coming out of a Coma just to name a few. Enjoy my latest news blog and Forza Ferrari!!

Sebastian Vettel was left wanting more during the qualifying session of the Spanish Grand Prix, as he and team mate Kimi Raikkonen dropped behind both Red Bull. "It wasn't as good as it was all weekend [up to qualifying], so we need to understand," Vettel explained to reporters after the session. "He [Räikkönen] maybe had a bit better feeling in qualifying, as I was struggling throughout. Q1 already wasn't great, whereas this morning was very good, so…

Vettel was showing good pace in the third free practice session held earlier Saturday morning. "We were confident that we were trying the right things, but Barcelona is very sensitive to changes, and changes to ambient and track [temperatures]. "I think we didn't get the car to work the way it should and that's why we underperformed – we were just too slow," the four-time World Champion summed up.

However Kimi didn’t totally agree with Sebastien in regards to the number 7 car.

"No I was a lot faster than this morning, personally," he said. "Yes we changed the car because it wasn't very fast in the morning, but for sure we went forward. Conditions and everything for some reason we struggled a bit, but the others did a better job and this is it." Räikkönen explaind that the final sector was the main issue for Ferrari. "It was not an easy day: we did our best, but the result is a bit disappointing," he said. "We seemed to struggle quite a lot in the last sector and I'm not surprised we were losing a lot of time there. "Before qualifying we made some changes to my set-up and the car felt better, but it was not easy to get the laps that we wanted and make the handling exactly as we desired."

Ferrari will start the Spanish Grand Prix 5th and 6th behind both Red Bulls and Mercedes.
