The action on the track is starting and all the doubts that may have arisen during the very long break may now have an answer.
One of the most exciting news about the 2021 season was obviously the one about Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari’s split. Even though they both conveyed to state that is was a “joint decision” for them to part ways, it seems that one of the parties was more willing to divorce than the other one.
You may remember that one of the most discussed news during those times was not really on whether the German driver and the Italian team would have choose to continue together but on how much Vettel was asking to stay in Ferrari.
There were rumours that were about some offers and some rejections but the truth that just come out from Sebastian Vettel’s mouth today was very different.
“It was obviously a surprise to me when I got the call from [Team Principal] Mattia [Binotto] when he told me that there was no further intention for the team to continue [with me] -the German driver stated-We never got into any discussions, there was never an offer on the table and therefore there was no sticking point.”
Thinking about the present, both parties want to continue to work together in harmony .
“Our goal is to end the year properly and together. Hitting back is not my way and not my goal on the contrary. I am looking forward to the task I have and the chance I have and the rest, also regarding my future will be seen- the Ferrari driver said.
Indeed, at the moment his future is really very uncertain. “Obviously I want to make sure I make the right decision for myself and my future.- Sebastian Vettel stated- I think I have a very competitive nature, I have achieved a lot in the sport, I’m motivated and willing to achieve more. To do so I need the right package and the right people around me so that’s what I’m looking out for at the moment, if the right opportunity should arise then it is quite clear. If that’s not the case then I’ll probably have to look out for something else.”
In Formula 1 everything goes on and changes in the blink of an eye and for Sebastian Vettel, especially in this unpredictable period in which anything could happen, the end of his “Ferrari-dream” may be only a new beginning.
