Mike Krack says the time for speculating about Aston Martin’s 2023 line up will come, right now the focus should be on Sebastian Vettel and his achievements in F1.
Vettel announced on the eve of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend that this season would be his last in Formula 1.
That put an end to rumours about his future, the four-time World Champion having dealt with that line of questioning ever since his final season with Ferrari.
His retirement brings to an end a career that began with a one-off appearance for BMW-Sauber in 2007, and which included 53 race victories and four World titles.
One of the most successful drivers to have ever raced in Formula 1, Vettel has used his platform in recent years to advocate for climate change and LGBTQ rights.
As his career ends, Aston Martin’s search for a replacement begins.
“It’s obviously a setback for the team, but that’s life,” team boss Krack told Sky Deutschland. “We now have to make sure that we continue.”
