Vettel has so far had a dismal start to life in 2022 after missing the opening 2 rounds due to COVID. He had another disappointing weekend at Miami this weekend as well. A crash with Mick Schumacher robbed him of the chance of points in Florida.

However, he will have to keep his hopes up for the next round in Barcelona. Both he and Aston Martin are in major need of a strong showing.
