The former owner of Formula 1 Bernie Ecclestone gave his opinion on the situation with the pilot Ferrari Sebastian Vettel.
“We’ve seen this before: guy shows up out of nowhere, which nobody heard, and all in a Ferrari fall in love with him. I was close to Sebastian, but we haven’t talked to him about such things. But I think he feels pushed into the background.
Now it is not easy — the contract ends at the end of the year. If this year he will be able to show their capabilities, it must remain in Ferrari. If not… He was happy at Red bull, because the team loved him.
Whether he was to leave Red bull? If we talk now, no. But most pilots would like to fly the “Ferrari”. I think he believed that it was the right decision financially”, — quotes the words of Bernie Ecclestone’s Autocar.
