MELBOURNE, March 15th, 2014 (F1Plus / Jacob Polychronis) Sebastian Vettel has spectacularly failed to qualify in the top ten for Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix during a rain affected session.
The reigning four-time world champion was eliminated in Q2 with a time of 1.44.668, eight-tenths shy of the final qualification period. Vettel qualified 13th but will start 12th on the grid as a result of a grid penalty for Valtteri Bottas. The result currently has the German feeling baffled.
“At this stage we don’t have an explanation. We definitely know something went wrong, we are looking into that at the moment.”
