Sebastian Vettel has spoken about the possible reasons for Aston Martin’s difficulties at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
The race weekend in Jeddah is one to forget for Aston Martin so far. They were struggling throughout the weekend and both cars failed to reach Q2. Vettel revealed that the track configuration did not fit well for them.
“It’s the same car, so I think we are just not a good match to this track,” Vettel commented.
“I struggled a bit to get the tires to work, but I think so did everybody. So it’s not efficient, I guess, around here, and doesn’t play to our strengths.”
“The laps feel good. The balance, once we get it, is OK, but we are miles away, and then you look at the onboard from the others. There’s no secrets, they are just faster.”
