FIA post-qualifying press conference - Australia
Posted at on March 27, 2010

Drivers: 1. Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull), 1m 23.919s; 2. Mark Webber (Red Bull), 1m 24.035s; 3. Fernando Alonso (Ferrari), 1m 24.111s

Q: Sebastian, what a lap. The final sector of it you were hanging it off the edge of the kerbs, you were all over the place. You certainly spoiled the day for the Webber fans here in Melbourne. Sebastian Vettel: Yeah, I think obviously first of all it is a great result for both of us and for the team. Mark’s home race, so it is a little bit funny remembering last year from Germany, so kind of revenge but it is a long race tomorrow.

Qualifying analysis - Red Bull the team to beat
