Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll shared their thoughts about the “tough” Italian Grand Prix for Aston Martin.

Aston Martin had a difficult race at Monza. Both Vettel and Stroll did not finish the race last Sunday. The Silverstone-based outfit remains 9th in the Constructors’ Championship with 25 points scored.

Vettel stated that he had encountered problems with the ERS.

“Unfortunately, we had an issue with the ERS, and we had to stop the car. I noticed a drop in power beforehand, and then I was told to pull off the circuit,” the German said.

“Overall, this was just a tough weekend for us. I was hopeful for a decent race, but we struggled for pace and then had the problem that forced our retirement.

“A lot of fans, but just not our race… The atmosphere was fantastic, however, so a huge thank you to the fans for their support this weekend.”

Stroll revealed that mechanical problems led to his retirement as well.

“We had some issues with the car, so we decided to retire to look after the engine. It is a shame that we were not able to be more in the mix this weekend, but that is sometimes how it is in F1.

“We have to look at why it was so tricky for us on this track and see what we can learn from that. I think we will be more competitive in Singapore, which is a completely different circuit to here, in a couple of weekends.”
