Vettel: 2022 'a great opportunity' for Aston Martin

Sebastian Vettel is hopeful that the introduction of new regulations in Formula 1 next season could help Aston Martin to move forwards.

Sebastian Vettel feels that the introduction of new regulations in 2022 could be a great opportunity for Aston Martin.

The team have struggled more this year after a reasonably strong 2020 in their former Racing Point guise, with the British outfit currently sitting in seventh in the Constructors' Championship.

However, Vettel is hopeful that the changes coming to Formula 1 next season could help them to move forwards.

"I can't say when the results will come. 2022, with the change of regulations, will be a great opportunity for us," Vettel told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"But I expect that the big teams will continue to play an important role."

As for the current season, the German hopes that Aston Martin can still fight for fifth place in the Constructors' Standings, a spot currently occupied by Alpine, whilst AlphaTauri sit just behind in sixth.

"We had a difficult start, then things went a bit more in the right direction, maybe we should have got a few better results, but I think the regulation changes have affected us more than other teams," Vettel explained.

"We will have to take advantage of opportunities to score points and fight for fifth place in the Constructors' Championship."

In the earlier days of his F1 career, Vettel enjoyed great success with Red Bull and won four consecutive World Championships between 2010 and 2013. Whilst he would love to be fighting at the front again, the 34-year-old is realistic about where he is currently at.

"If I had the choice I would still be up front fighting with the top guys. But I'm here now. Last year the team had a great season, this year less so, we're here and moving forward."

Vettel is currently in 12th place in the Drivers' Standings. His points tally took a hit when he was disqualified from second place at the Hungarian Grand Prix, a ruling that Aston Martin eventually decided to withdraw their appeal against.
