Aston Martin has recovered from injuries after a tragic weekend: ‘It’ doesn’t get any worse ‘| NOW


Sebastian Vettel ended his first Grand Prix weekend since being diagnosed with corona on a completely Sunday in style. The German fell again and had to be examined at a medical facility on the Melbourne track.

The four-time world champion turned out to be in order. Additionally, there was some bad news for the Melbourne team, which suffered a lot of damage and also lacked momentum to score.

Vettel was absent from the first two Grands Prix tournaments this season, because he was tested and diagnosed with corona virus just before the opening race in Bahrain. “So I have no experience with the car, and that didn’t really help,” the 34-year-old driver looked back at his weekend.

On Friday, the German was fined 5,000 euros for driving back into pits and scooters in a circuit after stopping. He came out on top in the third season of free practice, where his car was repaired in a timely manner for qualification.

While teammate Lance Stroll was also twice involved in a series of accidents and injuries on Saturday, Vettel also fired again on Sunday. Completed the Aston Martin disaster weekend.

“It’s no worse than this,” Vettel said. “I wanted to go too fast and lost control of the car on the edges of the Turn 4,” he described his crash on Sunday. “I couldn’t do anything more, it was very frustrating.”

Working hard on new spare parts

“A quick forgettable weekend”, Aston team captain Martin Krack looked back three days ago. The Silverstone factory has to work hard to make new spare parts. “Either way, we will work to be ready for the Imola race in two weeks,” said Luxembourger.

“I would like to thank the mechanics,” Stroll added. “Everyone has done a good job of fixing the cars regularly,” said the Canadian, who finished out of points on Sunday. “And we’ll see how we can make the car faster.”

Vettel also remained optimistic. “It may not have happened this weekend, but we are looking for speed in the car,” said the three-time winner in Melbourne. “I am confident that we will be stronger Imola.”
