Sebastian Vettel performed for Ferrari for six seasons, and the final one was clearly not the way in which he would really like. Calling a spade a spade, it was a disastrous 12 months for him, as a result of the four-time world champion completed it within the distant thirteenth place within the private standings.
Nevertheless, talking on Christmas Eve on Sky Italia, Sebastian stated largely good issues about Scuderia.
Sebastian Vettel: “Methods to describe Scuderia in a single phrase? One phrase won’t be sufficient. I’ve labored with particular folks, and I’ll miss them, in addition to the purple workforce.
Ferrari will likely be part of my life, together with it I grew up as an individual and in addition realized a bit Italian. Every part that I’ve realized, I mustn’t return, I’ll depart it to myself, which is sweet.
It is easy to say that some issues might have been executed in another way, however once I joined the workforce, it was completely different – there have been different folks and different leaders. I already had a sure expertise, and it’s he who shapes the long run, and I at all times wished to be a part of Scuderia. Maybe I used to be not good to everybody, however I used to be myself. That is my type.
I’ll bear in mind with nice heat Riccardo Adami (race engineer), I already knew him and understood that he performed an important function. Extra broadly, folks from the skin, for my part, didn’t perceive Maurizio Arrivabene (who led the workforce from autumn 2014 to January 2019). However working with Marchionne was not simple. He was a particular individual, with him folks skilled the strongest stress, and his perspective in the direction of Maurizio was not at all times type. However I believe Arrivabene had a extremely massive coronary heart.
As for the dangerous outcomes of the final championship, they don’t have any impact on me. This 12 months was completely different from the earlier ones in that even earlier than the beginning of the season I used to be instructed that I’d not play for the workforce in 2021. Quite a bit has modified due to this, and I requested myself many questions – it was proper, as a result of it made me actively take into consideration the long run. I argued with myself, with my spouse, with my youngsters. 2020 taught me rather a lot.
Charles Leclair is certainly a really quick and proficient driver. He’s in a special stage of his profession and it was attention-grabbing to review with him too. I observed in him some options that have been attribute of me ten years in the past. Charles is a superb man and I can solely say good issues about him …
If we speak about different riders of his era, then it’s tough to single out somebody. Undoubtedly, now a special period has come. Every part has modified – the go-kart world has modified, all of the youth collection resulting in System 1, and F1 itself has modified.
At this time younger folks take themselves too severely, they’ve smartphones and different issues, though as a toddler I personally performed with vehicles, rolling them alongside the facet of a mud street … However right here it’s exactly within the change of generations. “
