Sebastian Vettel is surely under the radar to perform at his very best, now that he is driving for a new team. With the 2021 season almost in touching distance, predictions have started to pour in and as it stands, it seems like McLaren and Aston Martin are speculated to battle it out for the top spot in the mid-field standings.
The rivalry between the two British teams ignited during the 2020 season, as their battle for P3 on the constructor’s table went down the wire to the Abu Dhabi GP. Despite hanging around in P4 prior to the weekend, a brilliant drive from the McLaren duo witnessed them jump past Racing Point to secure their first P3 in years. Both teams have made necessary changes for the upcoming season. But who will come out on top?
