Vettel seeks Aston Martin "bounce back" in Austin

Sebastian Vettel is hoping to return to the top 10 in the United States after a run of four scoreless race weekends.

Aston Martin has registered just 13 points since Formula 1 returned from its summer shutdown with only Alfa Romeo [four] and Haas [zero] faring worse.

The return has seen Aston Martin drop to 31 points behind AlphaTauri and 43 adrift of Alpine with just six races remaining, leaving the prospect of a top-five finish in the constructors' standings looking slim.

"We're looking to bounce back in Austin," said Vettel.

"As we've seen in recent races, we have the pace to fight in the midfield, but it's such a close fight, and it's very easy to miss out on points.

"This circuit really tests the set-up of the car, so the key is to maximise practice and build on it going into qualifying and the race."

For Canadian Lance Stroll, the United States Grand Prix is the closest event to a home race in two years.

Although having failed to register a points return in any of his three previous visits to the Circuit of the Americas, two with Williams and one with Racing Point, Stroll said: “I love racing in Austin, and it’s great to be able to spend some time at home in Canada to recharge ahead of the Grand Prix.

It’s a critical race for the team, and we’ll be giving it everything in pursuit of more points.

"It’s a challenging track with the first sector having a flow element in contrast with the final sector which demands precision, making it quite easy to run wide. We’ll be pushing the limit to find the limit in the build-up to Sunday."
