Vettel pins hopes on race strategy
Sebastian Vettel reckons anything is possible in Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix and remains positive that his strategy of starting on the soft compound option tyre could play into his hands during the race. Last year's winner from pole, Vettel gave up on his qualifying attempt in Q3 in order to save his tyres, and will start from ninth on the grid after Pastor Maldonado takes his 10-place grid penalty. But while the world champion accepted that starting mid-pack made his race more challenging, he suggested that being able to run longer on his first stint than all those that qualified on supersoft tyres could play into his hands in terms of track position.
