Sebastian Vettel had a miserable 2020 season driving the lacklustre SF1000. Not going into the specifics, but that lacked on every severe game-changing ability. As a result, the German’s confidence went haywire in 2020 and the results were all for it to say. Having said that, Vettel had teamed up with Aston Martin for 2021 with hopes of resurging in career in the F1.
Apart from wanting a car that he could completely trust. Vettel would want to desperately put the 2020 season behind him. It seems like that’s exactly what the Silverstone-based team intends on providing the German. Aston Martin team Boss Otmar Szafnauer revealed that Aston Martin vows to give Vettel what Ferrari couldn’t in 2020. The former also believes that the German can even finish among the top 3. Vettel himself would certainly like to do so, but in a really tight mid-field, the job won’t be easy.
