Team boss Mercedes: Vettel deal would be great for Racing Point

Over the course of the week it seems to be becoming clearer that Racing Point really likes it in Sebastian Vettel. Rumours continue to grow and, according to Toto Wolff, negotiations are taking place between the two parties. That's what the team boss of Mercedes says in Great Britain.

Last weekend was the Grand Prix at Silverstone and against Motorsport.com Wolff said that Vettel is currently in talks with the team of Lawrence Stroll. "I know there are negotiations going on. But replacing Sergio Perez is not an easy decision because he is an important part of the team", the Austrian said.

At the same time, it will soon be important for the British brand not only to win GPs in the royal class of motor racing, but also to sell additional cars. With that in mind, bringing in Vettel would be a smart move, Wolff thinks. "Germany is the second most important market for Aston Martin. The Vettel deal would be great for them."

According to Ted Kravitz, Vettel's deal with Racing Point is almost complete. Confirmation seemed to come soon, according to the journalist from Sky Sports, but due to the corona contamination of Perez, it now seems to be postponed.
