F1 Star Sebastian Vettel to Leave Ferrari at the End of the Season
Four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel will leave Ferrari at the end of the current season after contract negotiations between the driver and team hit a stalemate.
The 32-year-old elected to end talks with the F1 team stating that there was ‘no longer a common desire’ between the two.
Vettel won his four titles with his former team Red Bull before joining Ferrari in 2015 and has failed to hit the same heady heights, securing two second place finishes in 2017 and 2018 and a disappointing 5th place spot in 2019.
On the impending departure Vettel went on to say;
“In order to get the best possible results in this sport, it’s vital for all parties to work in perfect harmony.
“Financial matters have played no part in this joint decision. That’s not the way I think when it comes to making certain choices and it never will be.
“What’s been happening in these past few months has led many of us to reflect on what are our real priorities in life. One needs to use one’s imagination and to adopt a new approach to a situation that has changed. I myself will take the time I need to reflect on what really matters when it comes to my future.”
Some speculate that Vettel could move to British team McLaren though things are very much up in the air with the sport as a whole with the current season being on hold due to the spread of the coronavirus, which has of course brought a halt to sporting events worldwide.
Betting on the current Formula One campaign is still very much on the table though and Intertops F1 betting odds are particularly tempting and the moment the drivers get back on the track you can guarantee there’ll be a great deal invested in the leading motorsports market.
