Spielberg (dpa) – Sebastian Vettel would not rule out a possible return to Red Bull after quitting Formula 1 team Ferrari at the end of the year. When asked if he would accept an offer from his former racing team, he said, “The answer would probably be yes.”
The 33-year-old previously said that he knew the team ‘very well’ from his past. A possible duel with Max Verstappen as a stable rival would not intimidate him. “I am generally convinced that everyone has to win if you want to win,” said Vettel, who won all World Cup titles with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013. “Anyway,” a return would be interesting. ‘
Vettel no longer has many options for a cockpit for 2021. He also does not exclude a break or a career end. “I think there is no news. I don’t know yet what’s going to happen, ”he said. In the “next weeks and months” one will see further. “I’ll take the time I need.”
Vettel emphasized that he still wanted Formula 1. “It’s no secret that I’m still competitive,” he said. “I want to do more, not just be there.” Vettel also admitted casual conversations with Renault, which Fernando Alonso will bring back in 2021. Previously, Red Bull Motorsport director Helmut Marko had ruled out Vettel’s commitment for the upcoming season.
