Not realistic to expect win says Vettel

Sebastian Vettel on Thursday admitted he is not expecting to win the Austrian grand prix.

Mercedes' Toto Wolff headed into the weekend's racing at the Red Bull Ring warning that Ferrari did not get the most from its upgraded engine in Canada.

"The battle is far from over," he said.

Speaking in Spielberg, Ferrari's Vettel acknowledged that the target is to win.

"We always try to fight for the victory," said the German.

Vettel said Ferrari does have a "strong package" in 2015, but he said it is still not realistic to head into race weekends expecting to win.

"We have to be realistic," he said.

"We know that we would need a perfect weekend and for Mercedes to stumble. Under normal circumstances, it is very difficult to beat them.

"The gap is still quite large," Vettel added.
