It is probably the secret dream of many a German formula 1 Fans: Sebastian Vettel ended his career, but team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes factory team. But whether the dream will come true in the stars. Still, it is not clear whether the Daimler group continues its involvement in Grand Prix racing with a private Team or as an engine supplier.
Timo Glock surprised in the current edition of the formula 1 Podcasts "Starting Grid": "The question is, why do you need to Mercedes-side for so long, in order to extend the two drivers in a contract. In former times it was a little faster, if I remember correctly. It is very quiet at the negotiations."

While Ferrari has until the end of 2024 to Charles Leclerc as an alleged number 1 and Red Bull until the end of 2023 to Max Verstappen, could Hamilton be a Problem, if Daimler pulls the plug. This could be "maybe it's a theme," says Glock - qualified but: "This is a bit of the glass ball, which we hold in the Hand."
"May also be that the morning to give a Statement out, and signed by both drivers. Since we are not stuck in it," says the former formula 1-Pilot. "There are too many open questions. Mercedes is not committed, because you wait a bit and see how the situation is developing, I think."Webber: Vettel will of Ecclestone
advise, However, Mark Webber has tweeted in the face of the Domino reaction in the transfer market in the last week, that big Deals between drivers and Teams will be made likely, "if you all are bored". And one should not underestimate, of whom Vettel will advise: "Bernie."
Ecclestone can imagine Vettel in the Mercedes well: "Mercedes should think under the current Situation, to commit with Sebastian is a German hero. This could be an emotional boost for the employees and for the outside world a positive sign," he says, to 'F1-Insider.com'.

But the evidence suggests that Vettel 2021 is not driving formula 1. Elsewhere, it was already analyzed that he would be likely to dissuade only for a Mercedes-Cockpit of a break with his wife and children. The variant Toto Wolff would be obvious: You know, it is estimated that one lives in Switzerland, in close proximity to each other.
"I know him as a person, and he is very straightforward and represents similar values as I have," said Wolff in an Interview with RTL. And "as an athlete, he is a four-time world champion. Since you do not have to discuss performance."Wolff: Performance is more important than big Name
"But it's also about, here is a long-term strategy to pursue, which we have held in the last few years, again and again. And since we are somewhat on the long line of Mercedes. Do not let us make our decisions." imago images/ZUMA Press Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel (v. l.)
Also, compared to RTL Wolff sounds like the topic of Vettel would have been for him a top priority: "We are loyal to our current drivers and do not want to enter into negotiations at a time in which the season is not even started. Only then will we see the big picture and evaluate: What are the possibilities?"Remains Daimler as a factory team in formula 1?
fact is: While Fans worry about whether or not Mercedes extended the contract with Hamilton and possibly Vettel as the second Superstar must be resolved behind the Scenes, first, whether it is with the Mercedes team in the formula 1 even more. The new Concorde agreement, planned up to 2025, has Daimler's blessing yet.
in addition, there are also other reasons that speak against it, now the driver contracts to sign. Wolff in 'ORF': "It is, however, manage a somewhat difficult, if you know that you're a whole season, whatever the appearance is, with a driver on the road, driving in the next year with a competitive team."

"What are you doing with all the innovations and all the Learning that you have with the vehicle throughout the year, if this driver can use the in the next year, possibly against you? And that's why all the Teams have announced this change so quickly are in a difficult Situation, in which we bring us."
