The German returned to the grid after missing the first two races of the season due to Covid-19.

Vettel was then deemed guilty of speeding in the pit lane.

And between him and his Aston Martin team-mate Lance Stroll, the pair crashed FOUR times across the weekend.

After, witnessing the all-time great’s weekend to forget, former F1 boss Minardi reckons Vettel “should retire” from the sport.

Speaking to Corriere della Sera, Minardi, 74, said: “He was unlucky to have missed two grands prix because of Covid.

“But he should retire. He has a lot of money, he has won titles and he will never win again.”

Vettel says his crash in Australia was a result of him wanting “too much too soon” on his return.

He said: “[It was] maybe too much of a handful for me today.

“I tried to push a little bit too hard and obviously lost the car.

“Overall, obviously we know that the car is difficult and maybe I was wanting a little bit too much too soon and obviously I lost it a couple of times this weekend.”
