Sebastian Vettel has not yet driven a kilometer in the new AMR21 from Aston Martin . Nevertheless, the German has already left a lasting impression in the factory, as team boss Otmar Szafnauer reveals to ' Reuters '.

"He works incredibly hard," he enthuses. "I can attest that he's really motivated. But I don't think the motivation is to prove the naysayers that they're wrong. I think it's just the way he is. I think he just wants to give his best, "he continues to analyze.

Vettel joins Aston Martin after six years at Ferrari and becomes a teammate of Lance Stroll, son of the billionaire team owner Lawrence Stroll. Szafnauer is convinced that the team will learn from the four-time world champion.

Gift guide: Disney+ gift subscription card is the perfect Christmas gift for families

  Gift guide: Disney+ gift subscription card is the perfect Christmas gift for families From Disney princesses to Star Wars and Marvel, there’s something for everyoneThe great thing about a subscription card is not being tied into a potentially awkward Direct Debit situation where you have to cut the recipient off (or reluctantly keep paying) a year later. Instead, for a one-off payment of £59.99, you get a Disney+ subscription for 12 months, which buys unlimited access to films and shows from the creators of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

"The partners, the employees, we are all inspired by the fact that he has won four times and knows what is important," says the team boss looking forward to the cooperation and reveals an anecdote from Vettel's first visit: The German brought a home-made one Body of bread as a gift.

"He can easily go to buy a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers, but that's not him. He comes up with 'I baked this loaf of bread'", says Szafnauer. "And he likes British humor. It's not about finding a common denominator. It's just like that. So far, it has fitted in here very, very well."

The team, which originally started as Jordan in 1991, was renamed fourth in the overall standings as Racing Point last year and, for the first time since 1960, when the sports car brand returned as a designer.

After Sergio Perez's victory in Sachir 2020, Szafnauer believes that Vettel could do something similar this year: "It's really, really difficult to win a race if you're the third fastest car, but not impossible, like we were last year have proven. Can Seb do it? Definitely. "
