We saw Sebastian Vettel Riding a scooter on the track after the session was red flagged after Vettels Aston-Martin overheated and caught fire.
On a circuit where cars raced at speeds in excess of 300 km/h, it was delightful to see Vettel smiling and riding a scooter with his car helmet on. The entertainment by the veteran cost him 5000 Euro as he was later fined by the authorities for his crime.
Sebastian Vettel is racing his first weekend of the 2022 season after missing the first two due to Covid. The German’s return saw challenges at pace. After Aston Martin caught fire they were unable to use Seb for FP2. thus he would ride straight into FP3, followed by qualifying for the Australian GP.
Return of Sebastian Vettel as fireman Seb
Aston Martin’s woes seem endless. The team initially suffered the setback when Sebastian Vettel was found positive ahead of the season opener in Bahrain, which also meant he missed the race in Saudi Arabia. Then the team struggles to find the pace in their AMR22.
Now, in FP1 of the Australian GP, Vettel’s car caught fire. This also led to the return of fireman Seb, a name fans have given to Sebastian Vettel in the past for handling fire extinguishers. Fireman Seb took over the fire extinguisher from the Marshalls and put out the fire in his car.
Aston Martin now needs to work well with Sebastian who can help the team with important feedback and help massively to improve. His return might prove to be the only thing the team needed all along.
