The driver finished 5th in the final season with the Redbull in 2014 season. His transfer to Scuderia Ferrari was a huge blow in the market.

The world was expecting a lot from this agreement. Everybody thought that Vettel was going to fight harder for more world championships.

Moving forward, Vettel finished third on the podium on his debut race with Ferrari. He won the very next race in Malaysia which resulted in his maiden race victory with Ferrari.

Mercedes Team Principal, Toto Wolff said that Vettel is the title contender for the season at that time. Though, he ended the season at third place with three wins and thirteen podiums.

Into the next following seasons, Vettel showed some great results in the driver’s championship. He finished 4th, 2nd, 2nd, and 5th from 2016 to 2019 respectively.

The dominance of Mercedes owing to their fantastic technology in their cars and mind-blowing drivers was too big a challenge for Ferrari.

Equally important, Redbull started to show the results and made them look like a top-two team in the Formula 1 circuit.

“Obviously a lot of guys in the team have given so much to me in the last couple of years. And just out of respect I want to give that support back and bring it to a worthy end, so I’m not at all even considering running away.”
