Sebastian Vettel admits to making mistakes during the 2021 season, but believes Aston Martin has a strong future.
Vettel moved to Aston Martin for 2021 after a disappointing final season in Ferrari red, giving them the proven experience of triumph they wanted for their comeback.
Vettel and Aston Martin have been battling in the midfield as predicted, and Vettel hasn’t always delivered immaculate drives.
The four-time World Champion recently asked to pit for dry tyres in Turkey, a call that left him slipping and sliding as he crept back to the pits. He’d come in 18th place in that race.
So, while Vettel will not deny that he has made mistakes this season, he believes Aston Martin will fare far better in future.
“I feel that we can improve,” he said.
“I now feel more at home in the car and really enjoy it. We still have a few races to go and I feel that good things are about to happen.
“I’m not good when it comes to a few points only. Mistakes creep in.
“It looks different when I can drive for podiums or victories.”
Aston Martin’s ultimate aim is to win the Formula One championship, but even with the new regulations in place for 2022, the Silverstone-based team will need to find a lot more speed if they want to compete at the front.
Vettel’s P2 finish at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix was Aston Martin’s sole podium of the season, but his 35 points, along with Lance Stroll’s 26, put Aston Martin in seventh place in the Constructors’ Championship, 31 points behind AlphaTauri.
