The decision of Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari to stop cooperation at the end of 2020 in the near future will launch a wave of transitions riders. British and Italian journalists have little doubt that Vettel in Ferrari will be replaced by Carlos Sainz, and Daniel Riccardo will take the place of the Spaniard in McLaren, but the German press has different information.

Edition F1-Insider claims that Sebastian Vettel has long been negotiating for McLaren with team leader Andreas Seidl and is close to signing a contract with a team from Woking. The parties can sign the agreement as early as this week, and then Sebastian will replace Carlos Sainz in McLaren, who will be open to Ferrari.

Vettel’s possible contract with McLaren is designed for one season with the possibility of extension for a few more years. The option with McLaren looks attractive enough for Vettel – the team has long been declaring its desire to return to the leader’s ranks after the transition to the new regulation, next year Mercedes power plants will again appear on Woking cars, and Vettel has had a good relationship with Seidl since the time of collaboration at BMW Sauber.

Earlier, Bernie Ecclestone, a good friend of Vettel, advised the rider to switch to McLaren: “I would have moved to McLaren in Vettel’s place to build a new team. He has no future at Ferrari. ”
