For a long time the question was where the Ferrari departing Sebastian Vettel would end up. However, it has now been known for a while that he will make the switch to Aston Martin, now Racing Point, for next season. It now appears that former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone had a hand in this move from the four-time world champion by putting pressure on team owner Lawrence Stroll.
In an interview with Sport1.de, Ecclestone said how he made sure that Vettel could secure a seat with the team. “I put a lot of pressure on team owner Lawrence Stroll to get him to hire Sebastian,” Ecclestone explained. “I told him how good Sebastian still is and that it would be a win / win situation for everyone if this deal went through. I think my arguments helped convince him. ”
The now 90-year-old Brit also says that he still has regular contact with Vettel. “We often call each other, then I listen to him and give my opinion about everything. Hardly anyone has anything positive to say about him, while a Formula 1 driver is still very dependent on his car and it is clear that this Ferrari does not exactly suit him at the moment, ” said Ecclestone.
