While there was joy on one side of the paddock, the other side saw tension as well.
While the German did apologize to Alonso, he stated that a penalty is not justified.
This is because many drivers have been doing the same through the weekend in Austria.
Gentlemen’s agreement down in the dumps
“Well, I only saw very late, not much I could have done and I think it’s the fault of the drivers ahead that keep jumping the queue and I don’t think that his right, and not what we sort of agreed on,” Vettel said after the qualifying.
When he was asked about the agreement, he replied: “Has it ever been in place?”
The Gentlemen’s agreement is turning out to be highly controversial as time passes.
Race prep for the German
While the four-time world champion was able to qualify eighth for the Austrian Grand Prix, he still has a lot of prep to do before the race.
On the previous weekend, Vettel crossed the chequered flag at the fourteenth place.
As a result, he went home empty-handed.
The German hopes to redeem himself through the second round of the Grand Prix.
We are yet to see how he performs on Sunday.
