Vettel's chances for 2021 are dwindling: We don't have room for him.

The chances for Sebastian Vettel on a seat in 2021 seem to be dwindling by the day. The four-time world champion already saw Alonso driving for Renault in 2021 and Mercedes seems to be aiming for their current driver duo. Now Racing Point has also announced that they have no place for Vettel.

No place at Aston Martin next season

Racing Point, which from next year will be living as Aston Martin, already has long-term contracts with their current drivers. Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez don't seem to be making way for Vettel. 

Team boss of Racing Point Otmar Szafnauer once again makes it clear that Vettel is not an option for the team: "It is flattering that everyone thinks a four-time world champion should come to our team, but maybe that's because the car is a bit quicker now. But we have long contracts with both of our drivers, so it would only be logical that we don't have space", he says according to Sky Sports F1.

Vettel impressed Racing Point

Vettel already said he was impressed with Racing Point this season. "I think Racing Point made a very strong impression, and are certainly in a good place for this year", he says.

"I know part of the team, I know some members of the team quite well from my past and for a long time. It's obviously a good opportunity for them this year to have a good car to fight with and try and improve from there", says Vettel.
