Vettel and Webber very conservative over chances

Sebastian Vettel (GER) Red Bull Racing and Mark Webber (AUS) Red Bull Racing.May 26 (GMM) Last year’s Monaco winner, the reigning back to back world champion Sebastian Vettel, these days, is simply dreaming about a top-ten finish in 2012.

In a remarkable turnaround for Red Bull, the latest Adrian Newey-conceived single seater looks genuinely outpaced on the Principality’s streets by Lotus, Ferrari, McLaren, Williams, Sauber, Mercedes and possibly others.

“The top ten is possible, I think,” German Vettel is quoted by Sport1.

But his teammate Mark Webber warned: “That could be pretty difficult.”

It is therefore a remarkable turnaround to consider that back to back constructors’ champions Red Bull could be the ones hoping that a bad-weather forecast turns out right.

Rain in Monaco could shake up the qualifying and race order.

“There is a forecast of rain for Saturday afternoon,” agreed Pirelli engineer Max Damiani, according to Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper.
