'Red Bull owner Mateschitz also likes to see Vettel sitting next to Verstappen'

Sebastian Vettel still has no contract for 2021 in Formula 1 now that Ferrari has decided not to make him a new offer. The 33-year-old driver still has very warm feelings for Red Bull Racing and a return may be possible. The top of Red Bull would be in favour of a return.

Christian Horner hinted on Monday at Servus TV that he once wanted to work with Vettel. The British team boss just didn't know if that would be possible in 2021. We now know that Helmut Marko is a big fan of Vettel.

Red Bull owner would like to see Vettel return

But also important is what the big boss of Red Bull wants. Dietrich Mateschitz is financing the Formula 1 project and according to information from Sport1 the billionaire would like to see a comeback at Red Bull. Mateschitz has good memories of working with Vettel. Between 2010 and 2013 the German provided the team with no less than four world titles in a row.

However, Alexander Albon's situation may seem to make an early return impossible. In 2019, at the request of the majority shareholders of Red Bull, the Brit with Thai roots was first signed by Toro Rosso and then promoted to Red Bull. 51 percent of the shares still belong to the Thai family that invented the energy drink in Southeast Asia. If Albon does not fall through the basket completely by 2020, a contract extension is the most logical scenario.

Any news about Vettel coming?

Thursday there will probably be more news about the future of Vettel in Formula 1. The German Motorsport-Total.com writes that there is a big sensation coming and Fernando Alonso also seems to hint at a longer stay of the Heppenheimer in the pinnacle of motorsport.
