Although Aston Martin have yet to confirm their driver line-up for the 2022 F1 season, Sebastian Vettel isn't all that worried about his future with the team.
There have been numerous announcements with regard to the driver market in recent weeks, confirming most spots on the 2022 grid.
Kimi Raikkonen announced that he will retire at the end of the 2021 season, with Valtteri Bottas taking his place at Alfa Romeo. Mercedes have replaced Bottas with George Russell, while Williams have signed Alexander Albon.
Both Vettel and Stroll are yet to be confirmed at Aston Martin for next season, but the German is confident that there will soon be an answer over his future.
"We are talking to each other," Vettel stated, when asked by RacingNews365.com about the hold-up.
"I really enjoy working with the team. I think the atmosphere is great and I do believe the future of this team is very, very bright.
"I'm not worried, and I feel that we will have an answer soon."
When asked why there has been no announcement to date, Vettel remained coy on the matter.
"Not much to add, really," Vettel continued. "Generally, I've never really talked much about contracts.
"I think it does also say in the contract [that] you're not supposed to talk about it, so I'm afraid I can't give you much more insight."
