At Aston Martin F1, the mood is positive after Friday at the Miami International Autodrome. Sebstian Vettel thinks there is more in store ahead of the Miami Grand Prix. Vettell finished the two practice sessions in P14, two ahead of teammate Lance Stroll.
Lance Stroll: “Going to a new location is always fun and they’ve created an interesting track here in Miami that offers a good driving challenge. Turns four to seven are a nice sequence of angles and allow you to attack. Sessions were interrupted with a few red flags, which is never ideal when you’re learning a new job, but we did what we could. The energy around this weekend has been great so far and I’m looking forward to qualifying tomorrow when handling traffic on a busy track will be particularly challenging.
Sebastian Vettel: “I think we started the weekend well, but I feel there is still room to tweak our car and adapt it to the track. It’s a tricky track and most of the corners are blind, which makes navigating the traffic difficult. This will likely be an important factor in qualifying, especially in Q1 when you need to find space. The red flags disrupted some of our running today, but we adapted as best we could because you want to do as many laps as possible on a new track. There is still pace on the table and if we can make some progress overnight hopefully we can get closer to the top 10 tomorrow.”
