Vettel 'not worried' over recent form

10th September 2019, 10:05 by Craig Smithson

Sebastian Vettel is "not worried" about his form for Ferrari of late and is expecting things to turn in his favour.

The four-time world champion has endured a frustrating 2019 campaign with six podium finishes but no race wins to date.

Vettel's team-mate Charles Leclerc has heaped more pressure on his shoulders by winning the last two races, including Sunday's Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

The 32-year-old German qualified in fourth place for the race, but he spun his car off the track and was hit with a 10-second stop-go penalty for his unsafe return.

Vettel, who finished in 13th, was later hit with three penalty points on his license to leave him just three away from a one-race ban.

Despite his disappointing time of late, Vettel is adamant that everything is in place for him to start challenging for race wins and he is confident success will come.

He said: "The speed is there so I am not worried. It is just a matter of putting things together.

"On my side, I am not happy, certainly not with how it went with that spin.

"After that the race was pretty much lost from there but at least the team was still going and after it was close with Kimi [Raikkonen] last year, this time at least Charles sealed the win."
