The switch from Sebastian Vettel to Racing Point (Aston Martin) seems to be more concrete.
According to a report, Sergio Perez is already considering his departure from Racing Point. The broadcaster ESPN Mexico reports on Thursday, citing unnamed sources, that the 30-year-old is aware of the negotiations between the competition team and Vettel and is already looking for alternatives.
Perez has a contract that will continue until the end of 2022. However, this should include a clause according to which the team may differ from the Mexican against payment of an alleged seven-figure amount. The American Haas team is repeatedly mentioned as a possible destination for Perez.
If he did, the place of the four early world champions Vettel would be free. His contract with Ferrari expires after this season. Vettel will then have driven to Scuderia for a total of six years and should say goodbye in the red race car without the jumped world title.
Most recently, Vettel has repeatedly confirmed that he has not yet made a decision about his future.
With the appointed Aston Martin team, Lance Stroll would then be a teammate of 33-year-old Vettel. The 21-year-old is the son of billionaire co-owner Lawrence Stroll from Canada.
