Sebastian Vettel: “If you find the grip guy, call me”



Sebastian Vettel joked that Ferrari need to find “that grip guy” after another subdued performance in terms of overall performance from the team.

Vettel ended Mercedes’ 2019 one-two streak in Monaco after he was promoted to P2 as a result of Max Verstappen’s five-second penalty.

That also lifted him above Verstappen to P3 in the Drivers’ Championship, but 55 points behind leader Lewis Hamilton.

“Looking forward to the next three, four, five races, obviously make sure we improve the car, put more grip onto the car so that we can go faster, simple as that,” he said via RaceFans. “But that guy seems to hide fairly well. I don’t know exactly where he is right now, so if you find him, or if you’ve got his number, that grip guy, but we’ve been looking for him for a while. I don’t think there are any secrets we will be able to unveil. As usual, attention to detail and a lot hard work is the only way to get us up.”
