'Vettel steps into Aston Martin simulator for first time'

Sebastian Vettel has had his first day with his new team. The German was at the Silverstone factory, where he was able to meet the staff of the new Aston Martin Cognizent team.

Sebastian Vettel was told before the start of the 2020 Formula One season that he would not be allowed to race for Ferrari in 2021. A huge disappointment of course for the German, who came to the Italian team in 2015 to do what his great example Michael Schumacher once did with Ferrari, namely become world champion.

That doesn't work out, but Vettel does get a new chance with Aston Martin. A beautiful name in Formula 1, although it is still the old team of Force India and Racing Point. According to F1-insider.com Vettel visited the factory at Silverstone for the first time this week, where he also sat in the simulator on Tuesday.

The German has also sat down with Otmar Szafnauer and Andy Green to learn more about the team. Vettel was still employed by Ferrari in 2020, so had to wait a long time to get into action for the first time. Now he has got a feel for his new car and will be working hard to be as prepared as possible for the start of the new season.
