James Allison doesn’t think it’s very likely that Sebastian Vettel will sign with Mercedes, but doesn’t think it would cause a problem with Lewis Hamilton.
Mercedes Technical Director James Allison was a guest on the F1 Nation podcast and talked about the possiblity of Sebastian Vettel moving to Mercedes.
“The first and most obvious thing to be said is that we currently have two very good drivers and we have options for other strong drivers,” Allison said.
“So it is not very easy to imagine that Vettel will suddenly drive for the team.”
However if the move somehow happened, Allison believes Vettel and Hamilton could peacefully coexist.
“If it were to happen, I think both men would find a way to make it work. Lewis is a phenomenal driver and Sebastian also has quite a few nice performances under his belt. I’m sure the professionals in both of them will make it work.”
“I just find it very difficult to imagine that the many strong options we currently have will disappear like snow in the sun.” concluded the Briton.
