The rear, the problem at Ferrari for the past two years, feels stable again. Now it’s about the fine-tuning so that the German can blindly trust his car from the very first test. “If Sebastian has a car that he can merge with, he can be expected again,” believes Sky expert Ralf Schumacher at ABMS.
Trust in a car can make a big difference: “It’s all about the details,” explains Schumacher, “you brake a little earlier here, you accelerate a little later and you’re already three tenths of a second compared to your team-mate who gets along better back. In the race it all adds up again. “

Alone: The team ensures that Vettel and the Aston Martin become one: “We try everything to build a car that meets the requirements of the driver,” says team boss Otmar Szafnauer. “Because”, according to the American, “in the end, the driver makes the difference.” As for Vettel: “All of our previous drivers wanted a car with a stable rear. That is why this property is in the DNA of our cars. Of course, that benefits Sebastian. “

Vettel himself, who works concentrated at home in Switzerland like seldom before, does not want to make any forecasts. “All I know is that I’m motivated to the point of my hair. But an initial performance profile is only available during the test drives. Before that there is a lot of reading coffee grounds. “
By the way, Vettel’s new Aston Martin will be presented on March 3rd.
