'The coronavirus prevented Ferrari Vettel from making a good offer'

It has been known since the winter that Charles Leclerc will be Ferrari's number one driver in the coming years. The Monegask signed a commitment until 2024. The other driver of the team, Sebastian Vettel, can leave at the end of this year.

According to Auto, Motor und Sport, the coronavirus has to do with the departure of Vettel. "Maybe there would have been a future for Sebastian Vettel in Maranello with the original budget ceiling. But with the new restrictions due to the coronavirus, Ferrari could no longer make the German a good offer."

According to Martin Brundle it's a bit different: "The collision of the Ferrari drivers in Brazil was the nail in the coffin for Vettel. Not because Vettel was blamed, but because Ferrari then saw that two leaders did not work."
