Sebastian Vettel confirmed he had held talks with Racing Point but said he was under no pressure to make a decision over whether he even drove for a team next season.
The four-time world champion is leaving Ferrari at the end of the year and his future in F1 remains uncertain. Joining Racing Point could be an option providing they part with either Sergio Perez or Lance Stroll. “At this stage, I think it’s talks. At a later stage, as with anyone, it would then get a bit more concrete,” Vettel said ahead of this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix. “At this stage, everything is still open: driving next year, not driving, maybe coming back or doing something different. I’m not feeling pressured to make my decision.”
