Budapest, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Jul, 2020 ) :Sebastian Vettel's future was the subject of intense speculation again on Thursday after it was reported he has been offered a contract by Aston Martin for 2021.
German tabloid Bild reported that Vettel is being lined up to replace Sergio Perez at Racing Point, when the team is re-branded as Aston Martin.
Racing Point have made a very strong start to the delayed 2020 season using their 'pink Mercedes' cars that are currently subject to a protest from Renault Racing Point team boss Otmar Szafnauer said both of the team's drivers - Mexican Perez and Canadian Lance Stroll, whose billionaire father Lawrence is the team owner - are under contract.
During interviews following last weekend's Styrian Grand Prix, he said: "I know that people like to think 'here's a team on the rise and Sebastian doesn't have a drive so...', and they put two and two together." Perez has two years to run on his contract while Stroll is believed to have a long-term deal in place.
After being ousted at Ferrari, he has been left with few options for 2021 and many observers have suggested he is most likely to take a sabbatical.
