Red Bull Formula 1 advisor, Helmut Marko jokes about Aston Martin team owner Lawrence Stroll not being overtly thrilled with Sebastian Vettel quickly establishing himself as the team's number one driver.

Vettel seems to be finding form at the British F1 team after finishing in the points in the last two consecutive races. The quadruple world champion even managed to claim his first podium as an Aston Martin driver, something that has pleased his former mentor.

"He's number one on the Stroll team, which dad [Lawrence Stroll] probably won't find that good," Marko told Auto Motor und Sport.

"I am very pleased that this change has been achieved in a relatively short period of time, that was Vettel as we know him. How he jumped on the podium! But above all his overtaking maneuvers, the fights with Gasly, the first sting.

"I hope that is the case on other courses as well."

Vettel currently sits ninth in the Drivers' Championship with 28 points to his name so far.
