F1 2020, Austrian Grand Prix: Sebastian Vettel doesn’t understand Ferrari exit

Published

on

Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto has explained more about the reasoning behind their decision not to offer Sebastian Vettel a contract renewal – and admits the German still does not fully understand their call.

As reported in May, Vettel was not offered a new deal by Ferrari for 2021 despite Binotto saying during winter testing in February that the four-time champion was their “first option” to continue alongside Charles Leclerc for 2021.

But on his first public appearance since news of the end-of-season split emerged last month, Vettel said at the Austrian GP on Thursday that he learned of Ferrari’s decision in a phone call from Binotto and was duly left “surprised” by the turn of events.

“Maybe he should just wipe this weekend and see how he goes turning up to Austria next weekend but it’s Marc Marquez, he’s a multiple world champion … if they declare him fit and he wants to have a go, who’s going to stop him?” Vermeulen said.

Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton, British Grand Prix, news, result, F1, Silverstone

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton is uncatchable in this year’s drivers’ world championship, according to his main rivals.

Both Max Verstappen of Red Bull and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari effectively conceded the title on Sunday after the British Grand Prix as the six-time champion claimed his third straight.

That the championship leader completed the race on three wheels made no difference to their view that the only man with a chance of overhauling Hamilton is his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.
