There is surely a revolution brimming at Aston Martin in 2021. Firstly, they are making their highly anticipated return to the F1 after years. Secondly, they have an experienced 4-Time World Champion Sebastian Vettel behind the wheel. With the experienced German, they not only get the added speed. But also, the years of vital engineering skills.
Having said that many fanatics believes Vettel is done with after the horrific 2020 season with Ferrari. So, there are have been legitimate question marks on his ability to transform Aston Martin. Team Boss Otmar Szafnauer disagrees with all of those speculations. He feels the fire is still inside Vettel and the experienced German is raring to make it count in 2021.
Aston Martin Team Boss Otmar Szafnauer on Sebastian Vettel
“He’s already driving us, he is very inquisitive. He keeps asking us: Why do you do it this way and why not differently? In just two days he had so many questions. He not only asks us questions but also passes on his experiences,” said Otmar in an exclusive interview with Auto Motor Und Sport.
“That is exactly what we need. We want to turn every stone to improve performance so that we can say in March that we made the best of our possibilities over the winter. Both Seb and us as a team. I don’t see a lack of motivation, a lack of self-confidence.”
Otmar Szafnauer also stated, “Yes, we have to. If you are consistently at the top, you drive different races. Sebastian will help us with that. We have to get used to it. But we are able to.
“Over time, we’ll fight at the top more and more often – and feel more comfortable up there too.”
