Sebastian Vettel confirmed his good feeling with the Baku track, concluding his fourth race on the Azerbaijani track at sixth place (in 2018 he was 4th, in 2019 he was 3rd, in 2021 he was 2nd). The German’s race, which saw him start ninth, experienced a difficult moment after 13 laps, when he finished long in Turn 3 after an overtaking maneuver on Ocon and managed to complete a 180 ° in a few moments and quickly return in competition. The four-time world champion thus took home the best seasonal result and eight points, which raise his tally to 13 after eight world championship stages (six disputed).
The Aston Martin driver, in the usual interviews, aligned himself with the Mercedes drivers in the complaints to the porpoising: “We have to find a solution, I don’t think we can spend four years like this. At some point there will be a bang, and it will really make a bang. And then everyone will say: ‘We said it’“, Vettel underlined a Servus Tv. His opinion is important, as the Heppenheim champion is among the three directors of the GPDA (the drivers’ association), together with George Russell and Alex Wurz. Focusing on the achievement in Baku, Vettel told Sky Italy: “Best race of the year? For the result, yes. In the last few races, however, I did quite well. Even in Miami I was aiming for points even though there was an accident. Together with the center of the group we are all very close. It’s certainly not where I want to be, but this is the situation right now. I did well over the weekend, even yesterday in qualifying. In the race almost everything went well, except when I went straight. If nothing else, I got back on track quickly. The recovery was nice, but it is clear that I made a mistake when braking ”.
