After missing the first two races of the season, Sebastian Vettel will be returning to the Australian Grand Prix

The four-time champion has had just under a month’s break from his Aston Martin AMR22, but says that this race will be a learning experience.

Vettel tested positive for covid-19 in March, with reserve driver Nico Hulkenberg taking his place at the Bahrain and Saudi Arabian Grands Prix.

The F1 star has now recovered but says his return to the competition in Melbourne feels like turning up “late to school”.
