It is reported that after leaving Ferrari, Vettel’s possible future lies with Renault and Red Bull, and one of the probabilities could be the Aston Martin team, which currently exists under the name Racing Point.
Horner said the goal was to continue working with Alex Albon, while there was no doubt about Max Verstapen before.
“Albon has grown a lot as a pilot,” Horner told Sky F1 today. “We want to keep working with the current pilots. They are a good pair of riders, and that has great potential for us in the future.”
Asked if it meant a categorical no to hiring Vettel, the team boss admitted, “I’m afraid it’s a complete ‘no.'” Sebastians knows this well. I hope he has at least some chance, maybe in the “Racing Point” team. “
However, Racing Point also denies that Vettel could become the team’s pilot.
“It’s nice when people think a four-time champion could drive with us, but maybe it’s just because our cars are a little faster than usual right now,” said unit boss Otmar Schafnauer. “However, we have long-term contracts with our pilots, so it’s only logical that Vettel will not have a place on the team.”
Among the leading units, Vettel could have little hope for Mercedes if he decided to replace Lewis Hamilton teammate Walter Botas. True, it is unofficially known that the current line-up will be announced soon, and Daimler chairman Ola Kallenius said briefly and concisely last weekend: “We are staying with our two guys.”
