Amid Coronavirus, there is another heartbreaking news that comes our way. Sebastian Vettel is set to leave Ferrari toward the finish of the 2020 Formula 1 season. He has not been able to secure another deal with the team.
Negotiations over another arrangement have been occurring since January. The discussions between Vettel and Ferrari has ended with no understanding. An official declaration affirming Vettel and Ferrari’s split following a six-year spell came today.
The four-time title holder’s future at Ferrari was unclear for some time, with Italian paper La Gazzetta dello Sport announcing as of late that Ferrari has given Vettel a one-year contract on an altogether less salary. He marked a three-year deal with the Scuderia in 2017.
He won 14 races for Ferrari. The German failed to fight for the title in the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Vettel’s situation as a reasonable number one at Maranello had been compromised by Charles Leclerc’s appearance in 2019.
A dazzling season saw Leclerc guarantee two triumphs and beat Vettel to fourth place in the title standings. The Monegasque was along these lines awarded with a drawn-out agreement over the winter. It has secured him with Ferrari until the finish of 2024.
McLaren’s Carlos Sainz and Renault’s Daniel Ricciardo are among the drivers for the Vettel’s seat. Ferrari’s different choices incorporate Italian Antonio Giovinazzi, who drives for the Alfa Romeo group.
As of late, Lewis Hamilton isn’t seen as a substitute after the Briton removed himself from the gossipy tidbits. Hamilton has demanded he needs to proceed with his effective association with Mercedes. He has won five of his six big showdown titles, albeit an official declaration is yet to come.
Vettel’s future in F1 is still unclear. Reports in Italian media say that the German has even got a firm proposal from Renault. Reports suggest that Daniel Ricciardo is unhappy with the French team. He had a frustrating season after leaving Red Bull toward the finish of 2018.
McLaren could be an opportunity for Vettel if Sainz turns into his substitution at Ferrari. While the 25-year-old is happy at McLaren, he is likewise out of agreement toward the finish of 2020.
An arrival to Red Bull, where Sebastian Vettel won every one of the four of his titles during 2010 and 2013, is impossible.
