Vettel believes error cost him better result at French GP

Sebastian Vettel and Aston Martin achieved a solid points finish at the French Grand Prix, but Vettel thinks he could potentially have finished higher than P9.

Sebastian Vettel believes he could have achieved a stronger result at the French Grand Prix had it not been for an error he made early in the race.

The Aston Martin driver followed up his podium result in Baku with another points finish, having ended the race at Paul Ricard in P9 with teammate Lance Stroll just behind in 10th. Whilst pleased with this, the German was also left wondering what could have been after he made a mistake during his long opening stint.

"It was a good recovery drive," Vettel told RacingNews365.com and other select media. "Good to have both cars in the points. It’s not a lot of points for ninth and 10th, but it’s good.

"We had to try something different and I think it worked. Unfortunately, I had one off in the first stint where I lost a lot of time. Otherwise I think maybe we could have been closer with the group at the very end of the race and we had better tyres, maybe score some more points.

"But it’s quite windy and the car was quite inconsistent for all of us today, so that was very tricky to judge. I was pushing quite hard and maybe in that one lap pushing a little bit too much."

Aston Martin are currently in sixth place in the Constructors' Standings with 40 points, just five points behind AlphaTauri. Vettel is hopeful that the team can continue to be competitive in the midfield battle.

"I think the team in general is strong," the four-times World Champion said. "Obviously we are not where we would like to be with the car but I think overall the team is doing very, very well.

"I think we have been catching up a little bit, which is important. We are in the mix. It’s very tight and we need to score points like today, even if it’s not a lot. We did good. We are fighting with AlphaTauri and Alpine as well.

"It’s going to be a long year, hopefully we are getting better and better and starting to have a bit of an edge, but it’s a long way to go.”
