“Before the lockdown I would have said that Ferrari would have been the direct opponent of Mercedes – he told Sky Deutschland – now, however, I believe that with what happened with Vettel the Maranello Stable life has become complicated. If Honda has managed to improve the power unit as it actually appears then Red Bull will have the chance to put Ferrari behind you“.
Vettel could leave F1 at the end of the year, and Germany could remain without drivers on the grid: “If Mick (Schumacher ed) will make a decent season, spaces in Alfa Romeo could open up in light of the identity card of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio’s performances Giovinazzi to be verified. In addition I think Vettel can build something with the Racing Point which becomes Aston Martin. Toto Wolff’s position in Mercedes is uncertain, Wolff and Vettel would form a nice couple, perhaps in Aston Martin. “
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto denies the problems with the German driver: “I think it was not an easy decision, first of all, because Seb is a great champion, a strong driver and we also appreciate him as a person. Having said that we have a half year to manage, but I believe a half year in which it will be nice to share with him again, because after all I believe that the people of Ferrara still love Seb and we love him too, “he told Sky.
Ferrari’s objectives in this World Cup start: “The priority is to focus on the team and continue to improve. It is a team, as we have always said, young that is growing, we must grow even more and be stronger “.
