Aston Martin has stated that Sebastian Vettel is dedicated to them and that they want him to race for them in 2022.

Vettel, 34, has a contract option to stay with the club after this season, which is set to expire in the coming weeks. Lawrence Stroll, owner of the Aston Martin racing team, said: “Sebastian has made an impression on us. We have every intention of working with him again next year and beyond.” Stroll stated that a decision on Vettel’s future would be made “imminently.”

Vettel has had a hit-or-miss season with Aston Martin, which he joined this year after a tumultuous final couple of seasons with Ferrari.

After a poor start, the German four-time world champion has alternated between excellent performances – such as a second place in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and a third in Hungary before being banned for a technical infringement – and less impressive ones.

If Vettel wants to stay in Formula One, he just has Aston Martin to choose from. All of the major league teams have announced their lineups for the upcoming season.

Only his present drive, the second seat at Alfa Romeo, and two back markers at Haas remain unannounced.

Vettel’s increasing interest in environmental causes, according to Stroll, “have no influence whatsoever on our great and continued desire for him to continue to race for us in Formula One.”

The comments came as the Canadian billionaire launched a new F1 facility at the team’s Silverstone base, which he estimates will cost between £150 and 200 million pounds.

“This is the polar opposite of what Ron Denis accomplished with Norman Foster,” remarked Stroll. This is a business, a factory, a campus, fit for purpose to match our DNA and culture, the goal of what it’s been constructed for, to be efficient and streamlined, to have everyone under one roof, taking into account the new financial regulations and where sport will go in the future.
