A four-time world champion is on the market – and Racing Point have emerged as the number one landing spot for Sebastian Vettel’s services for 2021. But with two drivers already under contract, and only two seats available, how is such a move possible?
Well, Vettel may just quite be in the cockpit of a Racing Point by next season. The German is touted to replace Sergio Perez as Racing Point transforms into Aston Martin for 2021.
The Auto, Motor und Sport editor Michael Schmidt looks back on the past Grand Prix weekend on his show Formel Schmidt. However, what is coming up next weekend may be even more interesting. The German Formula 1 journalist knows more about the status of Sebastian Vettel’s move to Racing Point.
“According to the most recent stories, it has become clear that Racing Point will make an internal choice this weekend. This will determine whether they want Sebastian Vettel or not”, he says via Youtube. The owner of the British racing team, Lawrence Stroll, is said to be making the decision this weekend.
But that is not all that certain. If the Heppenheimer moves to Racing Point, someone must pack his bags and leave the team. According to Schmidt, the team will first determine whether they want the four-time world champion. “Only then will they see who will have to leave the team”, says Schmidt.
STROLL AND PEREZ ?
So it’s between Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll. Although Perez is generally seen as the better driver, Stroll naturally has the support of his father. As easy as that choice may seem, some think that Lawrence Stroll, as a true businessman, could shut the door on his son if that’s the best choice for Aston Martin.
