Mattia Binotto explained why Ferrari decided not to renew the contract with Sebastian Vettel. According to the head of Scuderia, the Italian team and the German rider no longer have common goals.

“We make these decisions when we are sure that they are the right one,” Binotto said at the Motor Valley Fest, an online event. – We are completing a cycle of cooperation with Sebastian, who has been working with the team for six years now. I admire Sebastian and as a man and as a racer, I treat him with great respect.

In recent weeks, the world has changed not only from an economic point of view, but also from a technical and sports point of view. We have to solve problems and overcome obstacles, so we are laying the foundations of our future. And we want to see a specific perspective. We discussed this with Sebastian and found out that we do not have common short-term and long-term goals. “

Binotto also commented on the decision to sign a contract with Carlos Sainz: “Sainz is a great addition to the team. He is very smart, young, but he has already participated in five seasons.

Carlos is a strong and reliable racer, earning a lot of points. I believe that he is an excellent pilot, and paired with Charles’s natural talent, he will be able to grow and win. ”
