Sebastian Vettel’s chassis change prompted by recent F1 form

Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel says he is changing his Red Bull chassis for the Spanish Grand Prix in case car problems contributed to his recent struggles.

Although Vettel finished on the podium in the Malaysian GP, he was only sixth and fifth in the following races in Bahrain and China, and had to move aside for team-mate Daniel Ricciardo on both occasions.

When Red Bull confirmed that Vettel would get a new chassis for Barcelona, the team indicated that the change had long been scheduled rather than being a reaction to his form in the opening races.
