Mike Krake does not believe Sebastian Vettel’s accidents over the weekend at the Australian Grand Prix are due to the driver himself. The Aston Martin boss has talked about various issues with the AMR22 and it’s not normal for Vettel to have a lot of problems with the car.
Crack says otherwise Dutch branch of Motorsport.com He is happy that the four-time world champion didn’t get hurt: “If he’s been through something like the four-time world champion, and he’s gone through these things, it’s not because of the way he rides. He knows this car. The German says the problems should be looked at: “But you agree. With me it’s not normal for him to be in such trouble.”
According to Krack, the fact that Vettel missed the first two Grand Prix races of the 2022 season is not the reason for the former Red Bull Racing driver’s disappointing weekend. After all, he’s already won twice in Melbourne: “He knows where he’s coming and he’s tested the car. So we don’t put it in two missed weekends. With a driver like that we have to see what we give him.”
Aston Martin knows what’s wrong with the AMR22
Aston Martin is currently in the 10th and last place in the constructors’ championship. Crack knows where the problems lie: “It’s in the air and the weight of the car. We’ll improve in weight, but aerodynamics will still be a problem. We really need to look at that. When the air is better, everything becomes easier and the drivers are happier too.”
It currently appears that Aston Martin has missed out on the new regulations. Crack: “At a certain point you make a decision about a particular concept, but also about how the car will work. Then you come across problems that we and the other teams are dealing with now, which is holding the development a little bit right now. We’re making progress, but it’s still too early to deal with that. It really is.”
