Sebastian Vettel had a bad start to the new season of Formula 1 – he missed two races due to corona virus infection, in the next one he crashed the Aston Martin car. Only the last doctor in Emilia Romagna gave the 34-year-old a chance to score, and the 34-year-old, after competing in Imola, said that eighth place was like a victory.
Despite Vettel’s performance at Imola, there is no shortage of speculation in the F1 paddock that the 2022 season will be the four-time world champion’s last in the reigns of motorsport. He has already indicated several times that he does not want to drive in the middle, while the Silverstone team is not making progress.
When discussing the future of Vettel, the topic of returning to the Red Bull Championship, which the German was successful in 2010-2013, is often raised. – I haven’t spoken to Christian Horner (Red Bull boss – author’s note) for a long time, so I don’t know. Time will tell. Now we focus on the present and the peak ahead. We are trying to ride on it, Vettel said last weekend, referring to Aston Martin’s problems.

According to unofficial information, Aston Martin knows about the end of Sebastian Vettel’s career and has already explored the possibility of acquiring Fernando Alonso. The official message from the England team, however, is that it wants to continue the partnership with the current leader.
– I’m not talking about contracts. However, if you have a driver like Sebastian who you can only motivate by having a car that is fast enough, it would be foolish not to try to keep him in the team, said Mike Krack, the boss of Aston Martin, about Imola.
– I understand his opinion 100%. He wants to see the development of the team, he wants to see the car go faster. He is not the type of driver who sits 16th or 18th. So, I fully understand his point of view. It’s up to us to give him the tools he needs to fight,’ added Krack.
This is how Krack referred to the words of Vettel of Imola. The German insisted last weekend that he was awaiting progress in Aston Martin’s results. – We will see what happens in the coming weeks and months and how much progress we will be able to make. Then I will have an answer about the future. At the moment I don’t think much about it – said the former world champion.
