Sebastian Vettel has failed at Ferrari, but no regrets that six years ago he switched from Red Bull to the Italian race stable.
Thats what the German said at Mugello, where Ferrari will have its thousandth race in Formula 1 on Sunday. I chose Ferrari to win championships, not just races,” said the man driving for Aston Martin next year. If you look at it that way, you can say we have failed. I dont regret anything. Ive had good times, but Ive also had bad times. Now its good for both sides to go our separate ways”
Vettel was told in May that his contract with the Italian racehorse would not be renewed. Vettel, who won the world title at Red Bull for four consecutive years (from 2010 to 2014), knew that it would not be prolonged. He was even thinking of stopping altogether after this year, but on Thursday he surprised by announcing that next season he will take over the seat of Mexican Sergio Pérez at Racing Point, the stables that will be renamed Aston Martin from 2021.
“Ferrari has defined a large part of my life and the team has a special place with me. I grew up with the successes of Michael Schumacher at Ferrari. Ive certainly had good times and made friends and I wouldnt have missed it,” said Vettel, who won 14 GPs for Ferrari and finished second twice in the World Championship (2017 and 2018).
