S ebastian Vettel presented himself on Happy Thursday in Barcelona. The memories of his last laps on the Grand Prix circuit in Barcelona shouldn't be so good.

The fifth title beckons at the end of the season. “I'm not even thinking about that yet. There are still so many points to be awarded. At such an early point in the season it makes no sense to look at the World Cup stand. ”
