F1 | Stroll: Vettel has "something to prove, and he’s raring to go"
After a forgetful 2020 at Ferrari for Sebastian Vettel, the german has started to establish at his new team, Aston Martin.
The 2021 Formula 1 season is set to start next week at Bahrain and with pre season done Vettel has started to make adjustments around the team making a positive impression on the team, and brings title-winning experience.
Vettel is “very wise” with his feedback after their first test session together in Bahrain, said his teammate Lance Stroll.
Lance talked about his experience with Sebastian:
“He’s very knowledgeable when it comes to the behaviour of the car, what he wants from the car, and just his comments are very wise,”
“He has a lot of experience and is a very talented driver obviously. It’s still early days though. I’m sure I’ll get to know him much better in the next few weeks when we start to go racing and we’re on the track at the same time doing similar programmes.
“We’ll probably be able to relate to each other’s comments and give our feedback and have a much better idea about what we’re both talking about.”
Aston Martin Lagonda’s Executive Chairman, Lawrence Stroll said Vettel “has something to prove”
“A four-time world champion doesn’t forget how to drive all of a sudden,”
“This guy has got something to prove, and he’s raring to go.”
“Sebastian is clearly a great driver. He is a four-time world champion, and my guys haven’t been world champions yet, so he brings that knowledge to help lift the team to a new level of understanding of how you need to act and perform to do so.”
Stroll also talked about Aston Martin's goal in Formula 1:
"Our ultimate goal is to be world champion. The most important tool you have in F1 is your factory.
“We have commenced building a purpose-built, state-of-the-art factory. We already have great people, and we're about to have the best tools, so those are the two biggest factors in determining success in F1."
