Binotto pleased for Vettel: 'I think this is very important for him'

Sebastian Vettel's dramatic season saw a bright spot last weekend with his first podium of the year. The German finished third behind Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez in Turkey. Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto is very happy for his driver.

Difficult season

“I’m very pleased for Sebastian," says Binotto to Motorsport.com. “I think a podium for him is very important. It has been a difficult season for him." The Italian was not present in Turkey himself, but sees the progress at Vettel. “I think he has started being [more] comfortable with the car. He’s delivering better.”

“He had a very good start, very consistent, with good pace. He was managing the tyres, managing to keep the positions, and holding the positions. And overall, even on the last lap, he did well because he took the opportunity. And it’s great for him," Binotto continued.

Three races to go

In the end it was only three tenths of a second on Perez. "He was very close, but well, I’m happy for him. Still three races, and hopefully we will do as well in the next one.”
