Vettel: The spirit is as good or better than last year in Ferrari garage

Ferrari's season hasn't started well, but Sebastian Vettel insists the atmosphere and spirit are "as good or better than last year" in the Ferrari garage. He's confident his car will perform the same as it did during pre-season testing around the same circuit. 

"The car was really good in testing, we arrived in Australia and struggled to feel the same, the first four races have been up and down. Deep down, we know the car is strong. The spirit is as good or better than last year, we're in good shape and we're confident about the parts we bring here," Vettel said in the drivers' press conference. 

With Mercedes producing four one-two results, the Silver Arrows are pulling away in both world championships. The Italian team need to find answers quickly and Vettel is confident his team will find similar performance levels to the pre-season tests. 

"This weekend will be interesting for us because we had a good feeling here not so long ago so it will be interesting to see how it behaves this weekend, but I'm confident if we can get to the level, we will be very competitive," he added.
