Sebastian Vettel in, Sergio Perez out

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel replaces Sergio Perez for 2021 Racing Point seat.

Yesterday, Racing Point’s long term serving, first-team driver Sergio Perez made a surprising announcement in Social Media that, he is going leave the team at the end of 2020 Formula 1 season.

And there was large scale speculation that weather Sebastian Vettel will take the empty seat of Sergio Perez and today, Racing Point announced that they are going hire a new driver in their team for 2021 season and that driver is Sebastian Vettel and talking about Vettel then, he joined Ferrari in 2015 and recently he decided to end his tenure after spending five years with the Prancing Horse (2015-2020) as he wished not to renew his Ferrari contract for 2021 and the German driver was desperately finding a seat for next season and with Perez leaving the team, Vettel got great chance to join a new team for 2021 season.
 
Sebastian Vettel will race for Aston Martin, not Racing Point because next year Racing Point is going to rebrand themselves as Aston Martin so, this means Aston Martin will make a return to Formula 1 after 60 years because the last time Aston Martin competed in the highest class of open-wheel auto racing was in 1960 Formula 1 season.
