Sebastian Vettel has said he comes into France with “optimism after the success of Baku”. He hopes that his previous results in recent weeks can help that.

Sebastian Vettel is “optimistic” about the weekend ahead in France. He hopes the “success in Baku” can help achieve a good result.

“I think we came into this race with optimism after the success of Baku. There has been time to celebrate, but now I am totally focused on maintaining our streak in France,” shared Vettel.

Vettel also spoke about how he would like to be consistent to not fall behind in the midfield constructors’ battle.

“We have brought home good points in both Monaco and Azerbaijan and we need to continue consistently in what is proving to be an extremely close battle in the middle of the grid this year,” he said.

His teammate, Lance Stroll, also hopes he can improve. The Canadian was a victim of the first Pirelli tire failures but is hopeful of improvement and is spurred on by the pace shown in Baku before his retirement.

“My race in Baku ended in disappointment, but the whole team can draw positive aspects from our race pace and the push that Sebastian’s podium gave us all. I am determined to come back stronger in France,” said Stroll.

The whole Aston Martin team will be hoping for a good race in their tight midfield fight.
