Sebastian Vettel believes that Red Bull Racing are not on a downward spiral and that there is no reason to panic.
Following his collision with team-mate Webber in Turkey, Vettel has watched helplessly as rivals McLaren has seized the advantage in both championships.
However, the German believes that there is no cause for concern and that the mood remains confident inside the Milton Keynes-based squad.
“Coming into the weekend we were not the favourites, but actually we had very good pace and we surprised some people with that,” Vettel is quoted as saying by PlanetF1.com.
“We couldn’t really show our real pace during the race due to the way it unfolded, but it’s promising.
“It’s a close battle at the top of the table and, as we have seen, things can change very quickly.
“There is no reason to panic from our side, we have a very good car and we’re looking ahead to Valencia.”
