F1 | French GP | Vettel Saddened That "Double Points Finish Would Have Been Great, It Was Not Meant To Be"

As the lights went out, the team settled on a one-stop strategy for both Aston Martin drivers because the team didn't want to risk a double stack on their drivers during the Safety Car period from an incident by Ferrari's Charles Lecler's crash since the pit lane was particularly busy at the time and wanted to avoid detaining Sebastian Vettel for too long.

A two-point victory would have been ideal, but it was not in their favor. Despite this, the team's race performance was respectable and the reliability was strong, which gave them a solid foundation to take to the Hungaroring circuit.

Post-race, Vettel comments, "My afternoon was frustrating. I was stuck in traffic for the whole race – but you expect that when you start in the midfield."

He adds, "And, with the strategy, I do not think there was really much more the team could have done there."

Furthermore, "It is clear that we need more grip. In the race, things were not too bad – the cars ahead of us were not disappearing – and we also understand the car a little bit more after this weekend."

To conclude, "I had a chance to pass Lance on the final lap; I was a little bit faster but we are not fighting over one point – it is the same net result for the team. It does not make any difference."
