According to multiple media reports, Ferrari are set to part ways with 4-time world champion, Sebastian Vettel, at the end of the 2020 season. The stories were in Bild, Gazzetta dello Sport and Auto Motor und Sport.
While some reports have Carlos Sainz as a likely successor, others suggest that Daniel Ricciardo might be the man of the hour. There is also speculation as to if Vettel would stay in formula 1 at Renault, or if there was a place for him at McLaren or other teams.
Would Vettel be willing to move to a smaller team after driving for Ferrari? Red Bull had made it clear they were not interested in spending big money on two world-class drivers as they currently have Max Verstappen.
Ricciardo makes the most sense to me as a replacement and if I were Mercedes, I am facing Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas both coming to the end of their contracts so keeping Vettel in mind might be a very good move.
