The German driver joined Ferrari in 2015 from the Redbull after a not so great season in 2014. He finished 5th after becoming the World Champion for the fourth time in the 2013 season.

He finished 3rd, 4th, 2nd, 2nd, and 5th from 2015-2019 respectively with Ferrari.

The last 2019 season looked horrific for Sebastian Vettel where he finished 5th. Hence, Ferrari decided to put an end to this relationship after 5 years.

Since it was announced, the rumors of joining almost all the teams in the paddock came into everyone’s eyes. Additionally, nothing resulted in a positive sign for the driver.

The German driver opened himself to drive in the 2021 season if he has a good contract with a competitive team.

Toto Wolff gave a slight rumor about Vettel to Mercedes making it a dream line-up with Lewis Hamilton. But on the other hand, Ola Kallenius maintained that Mercedes is likely to stick with its current lineup.

The German Driver showed an interest in joining his ex-team Redbull. But the speculation was duly denied by the Team Principal Christian Horner.

He stated “Obviously the topic has been raised, we had a brilliant time with Seb, he’ll forever be a part of our history, but we didn’t expect him to be on the market this year, and our commitment is to our existing drivers.

“We think we have a great pairing in Max and Alex, and we think that has great potential for the future as well, so, unfortunately, it’s not something that we’re going to be able to accommodate.”

Racing Point, not too dissimilar to Red Bull denied the news as well. They stated that they have long term contracts with their current drivers and have no space available.
