Sebastian Vettel : The announcement of the withdrawal of Nico Rosberg after winning his first and only world of Formula 1 has sparked endless speculation . The most coveted seat on the grid was available without warning, and all pilots have evaluated the situation in the quest to get hold of him, And among all, a team that these days have been especially bad, the Sebastian Vettel Ferrari.
At the end of 2014, with the confirmed departure of Fernando Alonso, the Italian team needed a leading driver, a driver who made both the team and the fans believe, and also, to the press, that in Italy and in reference to Ferrari no Is precisely innocuous. Ferrari found its revulsion in Sebastian Vettel , the four-time world champion, Who thanked a change of air after realizing a season in which it had been completely surpassed by its companion of ranks in Red Bull, not only in points, 238 to 167, but in victories, three of Ricciardo by none of the German, or podios ; Eight by the Australian by four of the precisely quadruple champion.
Although 2015 was a positive season for Sebastian Vettel with a victory in his second race with the red car and two more throughout the year, 2016 has been a year of frustrations and bad taste . Although the season began with multiple podiums, Ferrari has been beaten by mid-season Red Bull, leaving the Italians with hardly any podiums and ending the season with no win in their locker.
Given this scenario, it was not unreasonable to think that Mercedes could try to get the services of Sebastian Vettel, considered one of the best drivers on the grid and that with the landing on the silver arrows would again see sated their thirst for victories and fight for The title of Champion of Formula 1.
His loss would not only be a terrible blow to the fact of running out of one of the greats of Formula 1, but his replacement would be at least complicated. With the best car on the grid in his hands, thinking about seeing Hamilton in red is even hard to imagine, almost as much as the return of Fernando Alonso. On the other hand, both Ricciardo and Max Verstappen have confidence in the potential of Red Bull, believing that it is the best way to achieve the goal of being world champions.
From Italy perhaps they would have to discount by pilots like Valtteri Bottas or Nico Hülkenber that already they were already discarded by the Scuderia, Or rely on a Sergio Perez who was denied the major just before the Mexican gave the jump to Mclaren F1. Be that as it may, pilots with no significant palm, drivers who would have to win the trust of the fans and which is difficult to see as spearhead of Ferrari.
Fortunately for the Tifosi, everything seems to indicate that Sebastian Vettel will remain at his job accompanying Kimi Raikkonen during 2017. In a way, it could be said that Ferrari has dodged a bullet , even if it is claimed otherwise, the possibility of losing Its leader three months into the season has been real.
However, striking the null reaction Ferrari has had foreseeing that a similar situation may occur in the near future . The Italian team has simply ignored its internal promotion program, the Ferrari Drivers Academy, to contract directly with Antonio Giovinazzi , current runner – up in the GP2 Series, and place it as third driver of the team.
Is Antonio Giovinazzi the Ferrari emergency plan? It is difficult to doubt the talent and progression of Antonio Giovinazzi whom Audi had already thrown its claws for both DTM and WEC before mutilating their racing programs. However, it is even harder to believe that in the face of any eventuality, it will be Giovinazzi who will cover his back, not because of his talent or potential, but because of the real confidence that Ferrari may have in him.
So… What does Ferrari claim with its hiring? Is this what you have learned about what happened this winter? Although during the preseason Sergio Marchionne has said the issue of a team quarry of Ferrari in Formula 1 emulating the system of Red Bull and could see the light as Alfa Romeo , rarely they have as simple as an opportunity lived these days With a Manor team in creditors’ competition and they are ignoring, as they also seem to have ignored the possibility of exercising some control on the Haas team drivers.
Ferrari was and is a great team. A dream destination for Formula 1 drivers , however is sterile deny that it is no longer the preferred destination when a pilot plan to become world champion, which certainly complicates future hiring first – rate, especially if they come in the form of emergency. For this reason, thinking about supporting the athletic career of Antonio Giovinazzi makes sense , but of course a couple of free practice sessions throughout the year with a second team does not seem the most appropriate.
From Italy they seem to have lost the opportunity to place their future star in the team Sauber, whose seat seems to have been awarded Pascal Wehrlein, Mercedes’s quarry that on the possibility of losing one of its stars, Is forming in the ideal way both Pascal and Esteban Ocon in the ranks of Force India in 2017. Nor does it seem that Manor is going to be a likely destination, unless an injection of capital improbable by the family arrives Scored by Sean Gelael. Then one can not help but wonder. Have you reacted in Italy as it should? Is Giovinazzi’s recruitment a strategy or has it only been done to satisfy the Italian fans? Is Antonio Giovinazzi a substitute for Sebastian Vettel? Have they reacted in Italy as it should? Is Giovinazzi’s recruitment due to a strategy or has it only been done to satisfy the Italian fans? Is Antonio Giovinazzi a substitute for Sebastian Vettel?
