Sebastian Vettel has praised Haas’s Mick Schumacher amid rumors he might be filling the free seat at Aston Martin for 2023.

Vettel announced his retirement from Formula 1 at the end of the 2022 season, which means Aston Martin will have to find a replacement. Rumors have emerged that Mick Schumacher might be one of the favorites.

“I spoke Lawrence [Stroll] yesterday and told him that I’m not going to continue,” Vettel said. “We did have a very brief chat about what might be next and I’ll have my opinion.

“I think very highly of Mick. I’m obviously not entirely objective, because I’m very close to him, but I do think he’s a great driver.

“He’s a learner, he keeps learning when others sort of stall or stop making progress.”

However, Vettel recognized his German counterpart is still inexperienced in the Formula 1 world.

“He does have qualities, but he’s also very young, and still doesn’t have a lot of experience, but it’s not my decision.

“If I’m asked, I will give my opinion and not hold back, but in the end the team will have to make that decision.”
