Sebastian Vettel could still be in Formula 1 next season. The quadruple world champion is currently in discussion with Racing Point, which will bear the name of Aston Martin in 2021. The interested party does not confirm but does not deny completely. “Rumors are rumors. A few days after Austria did not change much. The fact is that there is no news, “he said Thursday at a press conference. The 33-year-old German has at least confirmed that he had had “informal discussions” with the head of the future Aston Martin team. “For now, everything is still open,” said Vettel.
ESPN Mexico says Sergio Perez, current Racing Point driver, is aware of the talks. The Mexican, whose contract ends in 2022, would also be looking for a new stable.
“I’m still on contract,” Perez repeated several times at a press conference before the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday. “We will see what will happen in the coming weeks. “
Vettel had not ruled out a few days ago the possibility of taking a sabbatical year.
Lance Stroll, the son of the stable’s co-owner, is assured of his place at Aston Martin in 2021.
