Sebastian Vettel had a very difficult final year with Ferrari but many in the F1 paddock believe he will benefit from having a clean slate at Aston Martin Racing.

Lawrence Stroll, who heads up the consortium of investors that owns the Aston Martin F1 Team, recently said he has confidence in Vettel’s abilities despite his performance last year.

However, former F1 team boss Eddie Jordan is convinced that Aston Martin made a bad call signing Vettel.

“I like [Vettel] a lot but I think Aston Martin made a mistake in signing him,” Jordan said.

“The last two years against Leclerc at Ferrari have been pathetic. I don’t know why he looked so bad, he won four world titles.

“But I think he’s past his peak. In any case, I would have kept Sergio Perez.”

Commenting on Lance Stroll, who will partner Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin Racing next year, Jordan described him as a “lucky bag” as it’s difficult to know what to expect from the young Canadian.

“Lance is like a lucky bag. You never know what’s inside. Sometimes he drives well, sometimes he drives extremely badly. He’s anything but consistent.”
