Sebastian Vettel: ďI drove more than two Grands Prix today, but I donít know if I won one, that depends on what the others did! Jokes apart, itís nice that at the final test we could cover more and more mileage. Today we didnít have any problem, we know there is still a lot of work we can do as a team, but so far I feel very good. If I had to pinpoint one thing, Iíd rather be a bit quicker, but itís difficult to evaluate how quick we are, because some people tried more of a qualifying trim and others did less so. I never drove the 2014 Ferrari, but I think this one itís a massive step forward. That doesnít mean that we are satisfied as itís clear that if you want to win, you have to beat Mercedes. Itís exciting to see whatís going on behind them, which I think itís not clear judging from the lap times weíve seen so farĒ.

James Allison: ďToday was a much, much better day, with almost flawless reliability, and itís much more encouraging, as we get close to Melbourne, to have that. We did a lot of setup work as well, were very conservative for outright performance, but were able to get good direction for the start of the seasonĒ.
