Sebastian Vettel will be a new member of Mercedes?

Following the heated news earlier published by BBC F1 editor-in-chief Andrew Benson, who said Hamilton was ‘disappointed’ with Formula 1, Germany’s Bild is wondering if Sebastian Vettel will switch to Mercedes.

The seven-time world champion reportedly does not want to make a decision on whether to continue driving in Formula 1 until he sees the results of the FIA ‚Äč‚Äčinvestigation into the Abu Dhabi GP.

So what they are looking for is a man (driver) with experience: someone like Vettel, ”concluded Bild. Sebastian Vettel has not announced himself yet, but it would be interesting if he was in the team that is the biggest rival of Red Bull in which he had the best moments
