It comes as no surprise that Aston Martin keeps the current lineup. However, the team from Silverstone took quite a while to announce the news. As a result, the rumor mill has been spinning in recent weeks. However, that was not based on anything. Aston Martin has now announced that the current drivers will also drive for the British brand next season.
“It will be my sixth season in Formula 1,” said Stroll . “I started this adventure with my team-mate Sebastian at Aston Martin and I look forward to the sequel. We haven’t reached our goals for this year yet, but that has only fueled hunger. With the prestige and support of Aston Martin and the great sponsors we have, we are in a good position to come out strong in 2022.”
Sebastian Vettel added: “I am really looking forward to racing the new generation of F1 cars. Their look is very different and the new technical regulations should give us cars that can race much more closely than recently. The changes are so big that every team will be starting from a new beginning, so it will be a great opportunity for us at Aston Martin. I believe in the strength of our new growing team, so I am already looking forward to 2022”.
Vettel will drive a second season for Aston Martin in 2022. The German ex-world champion scored the first Aston Martin podium in the Azerbaijan GP earlier this year. He was then back on the podium in Hungary, but it was scrapped when Aston’s car failed to pass scrutineering. Vettel is in twelfth place in the championship, one place higher than teammate Stroll. The son of team owner Lawrence Stroll is entering his fourth season with the formation, formerly known as Force India and Racing Point.
