Given Ferrari’s uncompetitive 2020 car, Vettel will leave the team having failed in his goal of replicating his childhood hero Michael Schumacher’s world championship success.
He moved to Ferrari in 2015 after a disappointing final season for Red Bull, with his switch announced over a whirlwind 2014 Japanese Grand Prix weekend.
Vettel has twice finished runner-up to Lewis Hamilton during his time at Ferrari but his legacy has been impacted by several high-profile mistakes.
Sebastian Vettel will leave Ferrari after this season, but he is sorry that the Italian Scuderia has a challenging year ahead. During the press conference, he explicitly looked to the future and said that he is weighing his options.
“I have previously said that if an opportunity arises, I would like to continue. I still have a lot to offer, but it also depends on my options. The regulatory revolution could lead to change, but we don’t know that yet, of course,” Vettel said, as per Formula1
“I’ve been around for a long time. I know a lot of people. Whatever my decision, it will be the right decision for me. You never know what the future holds, but I want to be convinced that the choice is the right one for me,” the German added. “Good things cannot be rushed, so I cannot say when I come with news. Time will tell.”
The German driver was also asked whether he is happy to leave the sinking ship. The driver is clear about that: he is always committed and sees that passion is still prevalent within the team. “I am still part of this team. We have had good and bad years, this year is another challenging year,” Vettel admitted.
