Sebastian Vettel is having one of his worst seasons. The German hasn’t made it to the podium even once this season. To further aggravate matters, he got knocked out again during Q2 of the Tuscan Grand Prix today. Elevating situations a notch higher, he maintained absolute silence over the team radio on being knocked out.

A similar silence could be traced back to the 70th Anniversary Race at The British Grand Prix. He was eventually able to grab a P12 in the Silverstone race. However, in his post-race radio, he maintained a deafening silence over the team radio.

Vettel has been experiencing some wide-ranging problems with his SF1000 lately. He had also been expressing his frustration over the team radio for some time. However, his recent practice of keeping silent proves that he has simply lost hope for this season.

Sebastian Vettel Replies to Exit in Tuscany

After being the first to exit the Italian Grand Prix, Vettel’s thread of disappointing performances is taking a huge toll on the racer. As expected the German driver wasn’t very enthusiastic after his Q2 exit and its reflected his near dejected post-qualifying interviews.

Amidst all this, Vettel will leave the Italian camp and join Racing Point. While Racing Point gear up for its Aston Martin transformation, they need a racer with experience. We sincerely hope that Vettel gets to prove his worth alongside Lance Stroll. As Szafnauer had said, the racer just needs a little bit of love.
