The Formula One world has entered Portugal for the second year in a row, and the Aston Martin team is like its two drivers Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel. Similarly, there will be many things worthy of proof.
Then, Stroll was responsible for the incident, which occurred early in the game and competed for seventh place. After replacing the damaged front wing, he was completely relegated to the rear, and he was also punished for five seconds.
In this year’s less competitive car, the 22-year-old Montreal racing driver hopes to continue this good momentum at the beginning of the season. After two races, he scored 5 points, and teammate Vettel struggled to gain a foothold in Aston Martin.
Stroll said: “We are confident of entering Portugal and are making progress to realize the full potential of AMR21.” There is an exciting battle in the group. Our goal is to compete at the forefront of this group. [Nous voulons] Another clean weekend, the prospect of more points will ensure that we keep going. “
The challenge will be difficult, because the layout of the Portimão circuit is not without its own characteristics. Although the straight line of the starting line provides an excellent opportunity to overtake when braking on the first corner, the limits of the track will cause a lot of trouble for the drivers in 2020.
In addition, the circuit is designed around hills, so there are many slopes and height differences can be marked. A slope of 16% was even reached twice. Either way, this is an ideal playground for Vettel, who is still looking for the limits of racing.
He said: “I think Portimão is a good place to spend a clean weekend.” The circuit is a high-speed circuit; it is very smooth and has a lot of drops. It’s fun to drive there, and I think it will be a good place to better understand the limitations of AMR21. “
“I know I haven’t made the most of the car, but we understand that this fact is another good reason to continue working hard.”
The track events will start on Friday, and the Grand Prix will be held on Sunday.
