Sebastian Vettel, the quadruple world championship winner, changed his team this season after having a not-so-ideal time with Ferrari. However, the start of his new contract was not as he envisioned.
The recent Bahrain Grand Prix was troubling for Seb, as well as Aston Martin. The team faced numerous issues in pre-season testing hampering Sebastian Vettel’s dream start to his new journey.
Sebastian was placed 18th after qualifiers as he encountered two yellow flags on his last Q1 lap. However, he was demoted to the last place after officials judged that Sebastian did not respect the second yellow sector.
Starting from the last place, Sebastian Vettel made a promising start only to be pulled down by Aston Martin’s tire management. Further, his chances of scoring points were dampened as he received a ten-second penalty for bumping with Alpine’s Esteban Ocon.
Sebastian Vettel: Start of a new journey
When asked to share his thoughts at the end of the Bahrain Grand Prix, Seb expressed his frustrations and issues that need to be resolved. Sebastian Vettel said, “It’s probably not the weekend we were looking for but there’s a lot of things that we learned in the race that we need to address, we will see how quickly we can fix them but I’m not at home in the car.”
Sebastian Vettel was not happy with how the team performed and stated they are far away from working at 100%. Despite the results they achieved in the season opener, Vettel still feels Aston Martin can make a strong comeback.
We all know every car and driver is different, both have to be in sync for the best possible outcome. It’s the same for Sebastian, he said: “I obviously adapt to how the car wants to be driven but there’s obviously a lot of things that add certain inconsistencies that don’t help.”
For Seb, this was the worst they can perform, and their performances will only improve from here on. With a lot of work on their hand, Aston Martin and Sebastian Vettel need to start working their magic.
