Vettel says he is not where he wants to be with the team and is “angry” after a frustrating qualifying in which he got eliminated in Q1 due to a double yellow flag.
After a very oppressing last two years at Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel should get a deep-breath of fresh-air with Aston Martin. However, since he has been wearing his new colors, nothing went as planned and after a frustrating winter testing in which the German driver lost a lot of time due to gearbox problems, he is now undergoing yet another frustrating episode for his debut with his new squad.
Indeed, the four-times world champion did not have the opportunity to set a quick lap today, as he was brutally stopped during his last attempt by a spinning Nikita Mazepin as well as a slow Carlos Sainz in the second sector due to an engine failure.
“It was a mess in the last sector warming up, I just made it across the line with less than one second and then I had two yellow flags, so not much we could do at that stage.” said Vettel to motorsport.com
“We are not where we want to be. And on top of that I think I’m still learning, we are still learning. We are trying a lot of things to understand the car further.” He added.
Nonetheless, the second youngest race winner in Formula One history wants to keep his head up and is going to do his best during tomorrow’s race. We all know that the Bahrain Grand Prix never disappoint in terms of on-track action.
“Hopefully tomorrow we have a good race. I think we can come up quite a bit and we’ll see what the day brings.” Says the German Driver.
