Sebastian Vettel has made the "ideal" choice in moving to Aston Martin next season, says Lewis Hamilton.

Vettel's move to the team currently known as Racing Point was announced on Thursday, one day after current driver Sergio Perez said he was leaving.

Hamilton said: "I was really pleased to hear it, the team has new ownership and has already taken huge steps forward."

The world champion feels Vettel's nous will "help steer that team in a better direction in terms of car development".

The world champion, speaking on the eve of the Tuscan Grand Prix weekend at Mugello, added that he was "sorry for Sergio" but said the Mexican was a "great driver and hopefully he will other options".
