The Ferrari pilot Sebastian Vettel at the end of the year will leave the Italian team and could finish his career. However, earlier rumours had linked the 4-time world champion with Mercedes.
The team is willing to consider this option, although it is not a priority.
“Our priority is Hamilton and Bottas, and young George Russell of Williams. But with Vettel we do not exclude. Who knows what can happen.”
“Just from version with 4-time world champion is not dismissive. View. While we have other issues that need to be addressed,” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff.
Media doubt that Mercedes will want in a couple of Lewis Hamilton to sign Vettel.
