Sebastian Vettel blamed himself for making mistakes in Q3 that cost him a higher grid position than fourth for the Belgian Grand Prix.

"There was a bit of rain in the first corner and my first try in Q3 wasn't good enough, simple as that," said Vettel. "I made a couple of mistakes at the beginning of the first sector and lost momentum."

Despite an unfamiliar grid position for the German this season, Vettel says he still has a car good enough to be faster than the rest of the field on Sunday.

"On the last lap I made a good recovery and it was quicker than my first try, but then I went a bit sideways in Turn 14 and that was it. The most important thing today was that the car was very good, good enough to be ahead of everyone else. It didn't happen for me today, so we need to do it tomorrow."
