Dietrich Mateschitz was brief on the subject of Sebastian Vettel. In an interview with Salzburg News,”the Red Bull co-owner and racing car owner was asked if Vettel 2021 could return to Red Bull?”What’s the difference?” This is not thought of,”replied Mateschitz.
Vettel’s contract with Ferrari is only valid for the coming season. The now 32-year-old native Heppenheimer had left Red Bull at the end of 2014 and had switched to Scuderia. Vettel has won the Formula One-WM four times (2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013) with the team from Mateschitz. At Ferrari, Vettel is still waiting for his first triumph with the Maranello brand.
This year, Mercedes will also start the season with the now six-time champion Lewis Hamilton, starting on March 13th with the Australian Grand Prix. With the seventh title, the 35-year-old Brit, who has no new contract for 2021, would set the World Cup record by Michael Schumacher.
Red Bull wants to prevent this. Max Verstappen has the stuff for the champion, emphasized Mateschitz with a view to the Dutch World Cup third of last year.” Today we have clearly the highest expectations compared to the past years,”said Mateschitz. Motor partner Honda did an excellent job in the winter.” The engine enables us to drive from power and strength to the very front.”
