Sebastian Vettel believes the Toyota drivers were lighter than him in qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix, after the Japanese squad secured a front row lock-out.
Vettel, winner of the previous race in China, will start from third position, but the Red Bull Racing driver reckons he has a stronger race strategy, as he thinks Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock have lighter cars.
"I think it was a good session for us," said Vettel. "I think we could see already in Q1 that it was already quite tight. The whole field is close together.
"It was a smooth qualifying session for us, no problems. We had a very quick cars, in Q2 we did just one run and could stay quickest, and in Q3 the Toyotas were just too quick but I am looking forward to tomorrow.
"I think they will pull in a bit earlier but we will see. I am looking forward to it."
The German admitted the brakes will be one of the main worries in tomorrow's race.
"Bahrain is well known as a heavy braking circuit, and also in the race with these temperatures it will be difficult to cool them, but it is a problem everyone will face," he added.
