Despite the fact that the 2020 season has still not started, the silly season for 2021 is anything but still. Where Ferrari announced earlier this year that it would like to continue with Sebastian Vettel, it increasingly seems that the Scuderia is not ready for that. Both McLaren and Renault saw the opportunity Sky Sport Italia therefore clean to make an offer to Vettel.
Leo Turrini, as an F1 expert on the Italian sports channel, said that both mid-engines have made an offer to the Ferrari driver: “Ferrari has so far only offered a one-year contract to Vettel, while the German is looking for a long-term agreement with the Scuderia. Both McLaren and Renault have therefore made an offer to Vettel and hope to see the German compete in Formula 1 in their colors next year. “
According to Turrini, Vettel might just opt for a French or British adventure. “Vettel last year also saw how good Charles Leclerc is and during the winter Ferrari decided to put Monegask at the center of the team’s future plans by extending his contract for many years. It will be interesting to see what Vettel will decide in the coming weeks. “
Turrini also announced that Carlos Sainz is in pole position to take over the wheel from the German. “If Ferrari and Vettel do not go further together, then Sainz has the best papers to take over the seat from Vettel.”
