Clear the way for Vettel to Aston Martin
Sergio Perez leaves Racing Point. Sebastian Vettel’s move to Aston Martin should be imminent
Perez writes: “Everything in life always has a beginning and an end, and after seven years together, my time with the team will come to an end after this season. It hurts a bit as I’ve been betting on the team during very tough times; we managed to overcome obstacles and I am very proud to have saved the jobs of some of my teammates. “

He continues: “I will always be grateful for the opportunity given to me by Vijay Mallya, who believed in me in 2014 and allowed me to continue my F1 career at Force India. I wish the current leadership under the direction of Lawrence Stroll all the best for the future, especially with regard to the upcoming Aston Martin project. “
In 2021, Racing Point will be renamed Aston Martin and run under a license from the British sports car manufacturer.
One thing is certain: Either the Mexican could not raise the millions he asked his sponsors for. Or Sebastian Vettel is just more important to Aston Martin and its owner Lawrence Stroll. AUTO BILD had reported that the Vettel deal with the English team was shaky for a long time because Perez had asked his sponsors for more money.
The still-Ferrari star and his spokeswoman Britta Roeske are currently not available. Anything but a move from the German to Aston Martin would be a surprise under these circumstances.
