While Sebastian Vettel will drive an Aston Martin next season, this choice of the German is not really validated by Helmut Marko, manager of Red Bull, who knows Vettel very well.
At the end of the contract with Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel will not be extended by the Scuderia. While Carlos sainz jr will replace him, however the German wanted to evolve in Formula 1. And after several weeks of research, he finally saw Aston Martin F1, currently Racing Point, offer him a seat for next season. The quadruple world champion will therefore be on the starting grid in 2021. Nevertheless, this choice of Vettel continues to speak. German Mentor at Red Bull, Helmut Marko conceded that joining Aston Martin was not the best choice.
"Not the best decision to make"
" We have discussed several things, several times, regarding his future. He obviously asked us if a return to Red Bull was possible but we don't have room for him. Then there was the Aston Martin option, which was very appealing to him. But, in my opinion, it was not the best decision to make. I advised him to take a year off and see what tubs would be available next. In any case, he would have been able to recharge his batteries to 100% for a year, come back with new enthusiasm and see all the opportunities that 2022 will have to offer. I really think that for 2022, good tubs would have been available for him », Thus conceded Helmut Marko concerning the choice of Sebastian vettel, reported by NextGen Auto.
