The 2020 Formula 1 season has begun, and the drivers are already looking after their future. Let’s remember that Ferrari will not resign Sebastian Vettel for the 2021 season and that means that Carlos Sainz will be Charles Leclerc’s teammate. The Spaniard will leave McLaren after a very good 2019 season and it seems that the 2020 season will be extremely good for the British team, it should be noted that today, McLaren has been seen faster than Ferrari, that is why Carlos Sainz’ movement to the Italian team has been very controversial. Then, Daniel Ricciardo did not hesitate of leaving Renault after a bad season with the French team in 2019 and the Australian driver will move to McLaren. This pair of drivers (Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo) are seemed to be one of the most powerful line-ups in the 2021 grid. While some drivers are still looking for a seat in the highest category of motorsport, Sebastian Vettel has not found one yet and Renault’s option has been declined after announcing that the Spaniard 2-time world champion, Fernando Alonso, will return to Formula 1 with the French team. Mercedes was rumoured of being Sebastian Vettel’s stop for the 2021 season, but the Germans are highly likely to resign Valtteri Bottas after a nice start of the season. Well, in this piece we are going to talk about a rumour which says that Aston Martin (today, Racing Point) is willing to accept Seb and talks have started.
The German newspaper called “Bild” have assured that Racing Point and the four-time world champion, Sebastian Vettel, have started having talks to reach a deal to sign the German for the next season. According to Bild’s information, Sebastian Vettel could replace Mexican driver Sergio Perez, whose contract includes a release clause that must be activated before July 31. If the rumour is true, Sergio Perez is the one that will be out of the team since the other Racing Point driver is Lance Stroll, who is the son of the Canadian billionaire and team owner Lawrence Stroll.
It isn’t what Vettel is asking for since he wants to be in a competitive team which is capable of winning races and Racing Point (proximately Aston Martin) is not. It should be noted that neither McLaren nor Red Bull are interested on him, Renault has no more seats available and Mercedes are willing to resign Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas. Racing Point has not been slow, at all. Both of their drivers had a brilliant Styrian Grand Prix and the car seems to be ready to fight for fourth place in the constructors’ championship. Let’s remember that Racing Point be renamed as Aston Martin, since Lawrence Stroll is one of the owners of the British brand. Would you like to see Seb in Aston Martin?
