Sebastian Vettel “Not Pressured” To Make His Decision For 2021
Since the announcement of Ferrari and Vettel parting ways for the 2021 season, there have been rumours here, there and everywhere about where Sebastian Vettel will be driving in 2021 – if he does in fact secure a team to partner with.
The past week, we have seen an increase in the rumours surrounding Vettel and Racing Point and the driver addressed the media at the press conference today, ahead of the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix.
Sebastian Vettel: “At this stage, I think it’s talks. I said last week that I have also been in talks with Renault – it’s talks. At a later stage, anyone I think it would become more concrete. The truth is, there is nothing to announce and nothing more concrete than loose talks….”
“Rumours are called rumours for a reason, anyway – now only a couple of days after Austria, there’s not much that has changed. The fact that there is no news. If you ask Racing Point, everyone is talking about them and their first two races have been impressive, the performance on track.”
“When it comes to myself, I said last time, it will probably take some time and most importantly for myself it’s to make the right decision, the right decision for myself. Once there is something to say, I think that will be the right time in the future to do so….”
“Anything at this stage is still open – driving next year, not driving next year, maybe coming back or not driving and doing something different. I’m not pressured to make my decision too quickly.”
Ending with: “I’ve been around for a long time and you never know, things can always change. Irrespective of that, I have to make the decision myself and see if there is something suitable in that direction.”
