Mark Webber, a former F1 driver who used to partner Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull Racing, believes that the German Scuderia Ferrari driver will opt for a year of break, and will not look for a team for the 2021 season.
Not so long ago an information that Sebastian Vettel will be leaving Ferrari with the end of 2020 shook the drivers market, before the season of 2020 even began. Vettel spent 6 years in Ferrari, a team of his childhood dreams. He said the reason that the relationship with the team was ended was a lack of a common desire to continue working together.
Almost immediately after the news broke out, a lot of rumours began to circulate about him potentially joining another team, from Aston Martin, to Renault to even Mercedes. The last link sparked the most conversation from the fans and others around the grid, as many said it would be something they would like to see.
But, according to Mark Webber who raced with Vettel during the Red Bull’s championship winning seasons, the German might take a year off during the 2021 season. Although he thinks Vettel will be absent next year, he might opt for a comeback in 2022.
As he told Ziggo Sport: “I think Vettel is going to take a year off. He can take it easy now. I really don’t expect to see him on the grid next year. Maybe he can think about 2022 after this season.”
Regardless the decision made by Vettel on that matter, we can be sure whatever will happen will definitely be talked about.
