The Baku podium is now the past, but in France theAston Martin however, it managed to limit the damage in the very balanced battle that is pitting the teams in the middle of the group this year. The Silverstone team in fact placed both its cars in the top-10, with Sebastian Vettel who finished the race in ninth position e Lance Stroll in tenth. Aston Martin is now sixth in the standings, just five points behind AlphaTauri. A good way to limit damage on a difficult circuit, as Sebastian Vettel explained after the race.
“We expected a difficult race and it turned out to be so on the tires – the four-time world champion explained to Sky Sports F1 – the start was not very good. I think I have lost a position. I lost position on Antonio [Giovinazzi] I think, then I took it back on him and on Ocon. So, the first few laps were good. We were obviously on a different strategy. We started with the hard ones, which were very difficult to hold. Conditions today were complicated. We know that the tires were a problem for everyone, but in the end we can be very happy about the points. It’s nice to have both cars in the top-10”Concluded Vettel.
Laconic Stroll, also satisfied above all with the little point conquered: “It was a pretty good result – commented – I didn’t actually have a great start, then I overtook some cars in the first laps. We got a good result “.
