Runaway World Championship leader Sebastian Vettel heads to Korea searching for an eighth win of the season, but is expecting a tougher race weekend where he is wary that a lack of top speed may hamper his ambitions on a track where Red Bull have won for the past two years.
Speaking ahead of the weekend in Yeongam, Vettel said, “The track in Korea has a bit of an unusual layout. The long straights all come right at the beginning and the turns at the end. I love the curvy part because it is a lot more fun.
“The straight lines and sharp turns can be a little boring. They are also our weakness, because we often lack … top speed there,” explained the tripe World Champion who is heading relentlessly for a fourth consecutive title.
Vettel, who won the Korean GP last year, has a sixty point lead at the top of the table over closest rival Fernando Alonso. (GP247)
