Does he continue? The future of Sebastian Vettel is puzzled in the Formula 1 paddock. The ex-world champion, who is no longer wanted by the Ferrari team, is now fueling speculation.
Sebastian Vettel expects a decision about his possible Formula 1 future in the next few weeks. “It will take a few more weeks, nothing will change overnight,” said the Ferrari driver in an RTL interview before the Grand Prix in Silverstone this Sunday (3.10 p.m., in the sports ticker of WELT). According to Vettel, he cannot answer the question “at the moment” whether he will continue beyond this season or not. The 33-year-old has to leave Ferrari at the end of the year.
“I don’t see why I have to put myself under pressure. In a way I made my decision, now it will be shown whether something reasonable comes together or not, ”said the four-time world champion in the interview. Among other things, the possible future employees and the feel-good factor are decisive. “What is less important is what it says on the paycheck. The drive is to achieve something, ”emphasized Vettel.
Hesse is closely associated with Racing Point, which will start as Aston Martin’s factory team in 2021. Italian media reported that Vettel could sign a long-term contract and also take on a role as a brand ambassador.
“When the right package comes around the corner, I think I still have a lot to give,” he said. “If that’s not the case, I definitely have no interest in continuing just to be part of it.”
