Sebastian Vettel: Sure he would have won in Valencia
Sebastian Vettel is sure he would have won the European Grand Prix had reliability problems not struck his Red Bull.
The German was forced out of the lead on lap 33, when his car lost drive on the back straight.
The double World Champion's anger was clear to see as he threw his gloves into the fencing after being forced into retirement.

"I lost drive, the engine stalled and I had to stop," Vettel told Sky Sports.
"Why that was I don't know. We will have to see when the car is back.
"There is not much we could have done better today. It is reliability. We all work on the limit and so does the car. Sure it is a shame, but up to that point we did everything right. Perfect car, perfect pit stops, perfect race.
"I think everyone can see what would have happened, but I am standing here and they are still racing."
