Aston Martin’s Achilles heel
Aston Martin managed to add four points in the Belgian GP, with a Sebastian Vettel who finished eighth, while Spear Stroll he stayed just outside the top 10, crossing the finish line eleventh. The German started tenth and the future partner of Fernando Alonso ninth, but it was all due to numerous penalties, because on Saturday, Vettel was sixteenth and the Canadian, fourteenth.
The four-time champion, after the race, clarified that the problem with AMR22 was on Saturday: “Once again we were more competitive in the race than in qualifying. We started well and I had a good pace. Vettel considers it crucial that those at Silverstone improve this aspect in order to be more competitive: “The key will be qualification. When we are in front, like at Spa, our race is strong. It’s a question of being in front, and at the moment we are suffering because we don’t have a good pace in qualifying. It’s our Achilles’ heel.”
the british team he only managed to enter Q3 three times in fourteen races (all by Sebastian Vettel) and fell sixteen times in the blink of an eye (seven from Stroll’s German times nine). Despite the pace of the race, the results of qualifying weigh on an Aston Martin which penultimate in the constructors’ championship with 24 points, just ahead of Williams.
