Sebastian Vettel is to quit Ferrari at the end of the season

Contract talks broke down with the Italian team

Sebastian Vettel is to quit Ferrari at the end of the season.

The four time world champion’s contract talks broke down with the Italian team, leaving the 32 year old with an uncertain future.

According to Formulaspy.com….

Vettel’s existing three year deal with Ferrari comes to an end this year, and he had been engaged in talks with Ferrari team management about an extension. Rumour was that Ferrari were pushing for a hefty pay cut; something Vettel didn’t agree with after teammate Charles Leclerc was signed on a long-term five year deal.

Facing the press during pre-season testing in Barcelona, Vettel and team boss Mattia Binotto both indicated a willingness to continue working together but, according to Auto Motor und Sport, these talks have now failed and Vettel will leave the team.
