Aston Martin faced several challenges during the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, with a key one being the adaptation to a last-minute driver change.

It was announced on the Thursday before the race that Sebastian Vettel had tested positive for COVID-19, meaning that reserve driver Nico Hulkenberg would take his place for the weekend.

In a new video released by the British outfit, Team Principal Mike Krack explains why the squad were "not really prepared" for having a substitute driver, given the various other priorities that they had been focused on.

The footage also gives an insight into other aspects of the team's weekend in Bahrain, including their participation in Formula 1's new 'show and tell' feature.
