Vettel: 'Only time is going to give us the answer'

It took some time before Sebastian Vettel's contract was renewed, but Aston Martin has now announced that the German can also race in Formula 1 next season. Vettel expects to play an important role in the ambitions of his team.

The four-time world champion made a good impression in 2021. With 35 points, the driver is twelfth in the world championship, eleven points more than his teammate Lance Stroll. He therefore did not hesitate to continue.

"Obviously I love driving, because I love winning," he states in conversation with "Next year a lot of things will change. I don't think there is one team today that can say they will definitely win in 2022. We know we have a big challenge ahead of us and I love working with these people."

Future plans of Aston Martin

Aston Martin earlier indicated that it might take four to five years before the team can fight for the world title. Vettel expects to be able to make his contribution to that. "Yes, otherwise I wouldn't be here. But I think the right answer is that you never know exactly how things will turn out. The vision and the commitment of the team are impressive, so it could take some time. Only thing that gives me confidence at the moment is seeing where the team wants to go and the determination they have to do that. Only time is going to give us the answer."
