Sebastian Vettel is targeting a podium finish at his home race next weekend.

The German has had a difficult first half to 2014 in the wake of his four consecutive drivers' titles, and last weekend was beaten yet again by Red Bull newcomer Daniel Ricciardo.

Asked how he dealt with the latest setback at Silverstone, world champion Vettel joked: "I had a refreshing shave this morning."

The 27-year-old was talking at an event for his sponsor, the shaving brand Braun.

"On Monday you're a little down, on Tuesday you're a bit better," Vettel smiled.

He played down the likelihood of a victory at Hockenheim next weekend.

"Mercedes is in a very, very strong position," said Vettel, "but the podium is the target."

Asked if he is struggling to deal with the situation in the context of his earlier successes, he insisted: "There is no reason not to be motivated.

"You cannot always be the best. But you can do your best. Others have just done a better job than we have."

Vettel said Red Bull is working hard to return to the top.

"It will be a lot of little steps, not just a big one," he explained. "It's obviously hard work, but then it feels even better when you succeed."
