Sebastian Vettel does not think a Red Bull victory at the Spanish Grand Prix is in the bag, despite the team taking pole and second on the grid by over 0.7 seconds from McLaren.

Red Bull has been on pole at every grand prix this season but has only taken one win in Malaysia. Vettel said it could not be complacent if it is going to convert Saturday's good performance into a victory.

"I think we are enjoying ourselves," he said. "Even though the time looks comfortable, we have to keep our feet on the ground because tomorrow is the most important day. So far we have been quick and done a good job. If we are here [one and two] tomorrow and we can confirm that then I would be very pleased."

He added that Webber had beaten him to pole by being quicker through the final sector of the lap.

"Mark did a very good job today, a very smooth run through all the qualifying sessions," said Vettel. "He always seemed to beat me too much in the final sector, [so we] have to look at the data and see where I can improve."
