Sebastian Vettel will leave Ferrari after this year, and speculation about his future is hot.
Would the 32-year-old German four-time world champion still be washed away from the top stable or will he end his top career? Vettel isn’t believed to be leaving to just drive from the joy of driving to small stables, but he would need to continue a competitive team.
Mercedes team manager Toto Wolff does not rule out the possibility that Vettel will move to his team for the 2021 season. This year, Mercedes will be number one driver Lewis Hamilton and number two Valtteri Bottas.
Their contracts will no longer cover this year. Britta Hamilton has won five of her six world championships with Mercedes. Vettel’s abilities are also known - especially in the stable of his home country.
- Of course, a German driver in a German car would be a good marketing thing. We focus on success, and Sebastian is very good, of course. He decides for himself whether to move to a stable or quit, Wolff said, according to insideracing.com, which borrowed Austrian TV.
