Sebastian Vettel will continue his second season in Aston Martin in 2022 together with Canadian Lance Stroll.

Vettel had a contractual option to continue the team, and the four-time champion decided to race with them in Formula 1.

The 34-year-old said he was “very much looking forward” to the new style of car that will be unveiled next year.

“Every team will start from a new beginning, so it will be a great opportunity for us,” Vettel said.

F1 has completely revised the regulations for next season, changing the way aerodynamics and rules have become more proper, in an attempt to close the terrain and facilitate overtaking.

Vettel said: “The look of the new generation of Formula 1 cars is very different and the new technical regulations should give us cars that can compete much closer than recently.

“More exciting races will be great for drivers, but also for fans.

“I believe in the strength of our new growing team, so I’m already looking forward to 2022.”

The four-time world champion joined Aston Martin after six seasons at Ferrari, the last two of which were tough as he faced the challenge of new teammate Charles Leclerc, and then in the final season he started knowing the team had already signed his replacement.

He had the rise and fall of the 2021 season, so he took the podium at the Grand Prix of Azerbaijan in places of strong and unconvincing performances.

Team owner Lawrence Stroll, the father of Vettel’s teammate, said earlier this week that he was “delighted” with Vettel.

Stroll added on Thursday: “Both Lance and Sebastian have had a great performance.

“They had more than their luck, but in 2022 we are thrilled to continue with such an excellent blend of youthful talent and experienced expertise.”

The announcement of Aston Martin’s lineup leaves only three places on the table in 2022, which has yet to be confirmed – one in Alfa Romeo, together with the new signatory Valtteri Bottas, and two on the last Haas label.
