Formula 1 in Bahrain: Vettel’s horror qualifying: Now he is even threatened with the last place on the grid

Horror start for Sebastian Vettel in the new Formula 1 season. In qualifying in Bahrain, the Aston Martin driver already failed at the first hurdle, where he was unlucky with two yellow flags. Is it getting worse? Vettel threatens a penalty and the start from last place.

Sebastian Vettel threatens further trouble after his 18th place on the grid in Bahrain: The Aston Martin driver has to go to the stewards on the Sunday before the race. The reason is a possible offense under a double-waved yellow flag. The German may be threatened with a punitive transfer.

Vettel caught two yellow flags in qualifying

It’s about the scene with Nikita Masepin, who turned in the first corner at the end of Q1. Vettel came over the line behind him and was shown double yellow flags because of the stranded Haas.

Because of this scene and another yellow flag from Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) in Turn 8, Vettel was unable to improve his time and was eliminated. After the session there was an investigation into Vettel, Esteban Ocon (Alpine), Lance Stroll (Aston Martin) and George Russell (Williams) for ignoring the yellow flags at Turn 8, but all four were acquitted.

On Saturday evening, however, another investigation was initiated against Vettel because he is said to have disregarded the yellow flags in Turn 1.

Vettel has to go to the race stewards on Sunday

A look at the data shows: Vettel had set a personal best in the first of 23 mini-sectors, in the two following even an absolute best and then another personal best before his time slowed down.

The German must appear at the race stewards on Sunday lunchtime at 1:30 p.m. local time (12:30 p.m. CEST). Should he be found guilty, he will probably start from the last starting position and collect penalty points. At least there, his account is currently empty.

As expected, Mick Schumacher failed early in his first Formula 1 qualifying in Bahrain, but clearly beats Haas team-mate Nikita Masepin. Schumacher is not entirely satisfied, his team boss praises the increase – and for a short time Mick is even in first place.

3044 days after Michael Schumacher’s last Formula 1 race in 2012, the Schumi dynasty continues: son Mick is making his first appearance as a regular driver on an F1 weekend in Bahrain. However, the 22-year-old blocks a question about Michael.
