Aston Martin manager Otmar Sazafnauer starts talking about his new driver and seems impressed with Sebastian Vettel’s drive to learn about his new car. The driver and the team have already started working together for the 2021 season and Otmar comments with surprise at the vision that one of the engineers shared with him about the German driver. Szafnauer hopes to have a positive combination with his two drivers, what’s more, he highlights Vettel’s hunger and desire to have fun again in Formula 1, that translates into being competitive and that at 33 years of age he has not reached the top at all. peak of his career. So thinks Otmar, who expects a good rapport between Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel, both can learn together from each other.

Momentum is not just for young people

“He’s very, very hungry to act. We already started working with him this year and you can see it. He asked all the right questions and many of them show that he is very hungry for knowledge. An engineer described Sebastian to me as having a performance engineer behind the wheel. He wants to know as much, if not more, than the performance engineer you have working on the car, whose job it is to understand every little aspect of the car’s performance. Seb wants to know that, and more. It’s a good trait, he has that, he took it with him to our team. We see him and he’s very, very hungry, as he said, of have fun again in Formula 1. But for him, having fun means being competitive. “

“Seb has a lot of experience, but he hasn’t made it over the top in any way at the age of 33. Lance is much younger and on the learning curve, but naturally very fast. So, I think that combination will suit us very well. The other thing is that we have a track record of drivers working very closely to get the most out of the team and the car. Even in the days when Esteban [Ocon] and Sergio [PĂ©rez] They got together occasionally on the track, shared all their data behind the scenes, worked together and worked tirelessly to make sure they got the best out of the car over a weekend. I can see that continues with Sebastian and Lance. I look forward to that. Lance can learn from Seb and Seb can learn from Lance too because Lance is now the veteran here. He is the one who has driven the car last year, he knows its characteristics more than Seb. So I’m looking forward to that couple. “
