Sebastian Vettel has revealed that he has purchased a stake in Aston Martin ahead of his move to the British luxury car-maker’s Formula One team next season.
Speaking in the run-up to the Eifel Grand Prix, Vettel said he believes in the project and is looking forward to joining the team at the end of 2020.
“Everybody is free to do what they want with their money, Aston Martin is a public company and everyone is free to invest in the company,” the German said.
“If you’re asking if I have shares in the company? I have. How much? I think it’s a secondary thing which I won’t talk about.
“I believe in the project. I decided to go with the project and I am excited to see what happens when we kick off next year and I am starting for a new team.”
Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff is another prominent figure in the paddock who owns shares in Aston Martin, with the Austrian investing in the company earlier this year.
Wolff’s financial interest in Aston Martin has prompted speculation that he is potentially looking to leave Mercedes and join the British car-maker’s Formula One team, but he has insisted he is staying put.
