Alonso could replace Vettel at Aston Martin

Rumours are gaining momentum by the day that Sebastian Vettel is inching towards the end of his Formula 1 career. The Lawrence Stroll-owned team insist they want to retain him for 2023, but stronger speculation suggests Aston Martin may replace Vettel with Fernando Alonso. Spaniard Alonso, who says he wants to keep racing for “two or three” more years, may be nudged out of Alpine by the Renault-owned team’s reserve and reigning F2 champion Oscar Piastri. “The question now is whether he will have the motivation to continue at Alpine. As for 34-year-old Vettel, his motivation now appears more focused on social and environmental issues – and he is not shy to answer questions about retirement. F1 legend Gerhard Berger, who was Vettel’s first team boss in Formula 1, is not so sure.
