After a poor start to his first season with Aston Martin, he showed massive improvements with a solid P5 finish in Monaco, Vettel backed it up with a P2 finish at Azerbaijan Grand Prix, even leading the race for a few laps.

The Aston Martin driver put all his experience to good use to bring home the team’s first podium in F1. The German, who was struggling at the beginning of the season, has come alive at the right time for the Silverstone-based team.

Sebastian Vettel has kept the Monaco momentum going: Palmer

Whilst speaking to BBC Radio, Jolyon Palmer praised Vettel. “It is so good to hear a happy Seb again, for the first time in a long time, it feels like. Obviously, Monaco was a good race for him last time out.

“He has got his mojo back, two races on the bounce. The Monaco one, it’s so specialist, it’s great. But you really want to kick on from that and keep the momentum going. He’s absolutely done that,” said Palmer.

The resurgence of Aston Martin has made the already competitive midfield battle more interesting. A double points finish in Monaco and now a P2 at Baku has shown a return to form for the Silverstone-based outfit. They will see the genuine test of their speed as F1 returns to more traditional circuits, such as France and Austria.

If they are quick at Paul Ricard and the Red Bull ring, then can seriously mount a challenge for P3.
