It has been reported that Vettel rejected a 1-year extension to his Ferrari contract and Sky Germany commentator Roos suggests that the Scuderia will attempt to lure in Carlos Sainz as a replacement.
“He has just received an immoral offer from Ferrari, with a big drop in salary and probably not with number 1 status,” said Roos. “Perhaps they have given him an offer that he will not sign. Then his place would be free for Carlos Sainz.”
While McLaren are happy with their lineup of Sainz and Lando Norris, a swap deal could tempt McLaren - team principal Andreas Seidl and Vettel having a strong relationship after spending time at BMW, the team with which Vettel made his F1 debut, together.
