Sebastian Vettel had a disastrous 2020 Formula 1 season. Ferrari announced earlier last year that Carlos Sainz will replace the German for 2021 and Vettel has since signed with Aston Martin F1. The team recently uploaded a tweet teasing fans with the first look of the German star in their racing suit.

Racing Point has rebranded themselves as Aston Martin this season, as the luxury British team makes a comeback to Formula 1 after six decades.

The team also found a new sponsor named Cognizant which means we will be seeing Vettel in a green and blue racing suit. However, fans did not get to see the suit just yet as Aston Martin was in quite the teasing mood.
