Sebastian Vettel admits he is still not feeling ‘at home’ in his Aston Martin car after a debut to forget at last weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

The four-time Formula One champion joined Aston Martin ahead of the new season after six years at Ferrari but started last Sunday’s contest at the back of the grid and was involved in a collision with Esteban Ocon which cost him penalty points.

The German finished 15th overall and failed to pick up any points in the first weekend but claims there are several aspects which are distracting him from his driving.

‘We will see how quickly we can fix them but I’m not at home in the car. 

‘There’s a lot of things that are fighting me so that I can’t really focus on driving. We need to address them and try and fix them.’

Vettel endured his worst ever Formula One season last year with his 33 points overall the lowest campaign total in his career so far.

Ferrari also finished sixth in the Constructors’ standings, their worst result in a single season since 1980.
