Sebastian Vettel’s dream of a world title with Ferrari, will meet with high probability. At the end of the year, the four-time world champion leaves the Scuderia to six common seasons, probably without a title. Jean Alesi declared to ‘Sky’, that he was “very surprised” that they had departed before the first race in 2020.

“There was for sure something is not running as it should run,” says the Frenchman on Vettel’s time at Ferrari. “I have massive respect for Sebastian,” says Alesi. “He has given everything to Ferrari, world champion – and failed”, he makes no secret of the fact that Vettel’s Mission has failed in Maranello, in his opinion.

“He has not failed, because it was his fault or the Teams. Something didn’t fit,” says Alesi. Vettel’s decision to leave the Team, got requires “courage”, because the German have currently no place for 2021. At the same time Alesi explains why it had Vettel at Ferrari, in his opinion, harder than Michael Schumacher.

Schumacher joined in 1996 from Benetton to Ferrari. With Benetton, he was twice in a row, the world champion, as he came to the Scuderia, where he replaced Alesi. “As Michael Schumacher has taken, for example, in my place, he came with a complete engineering team. He has worked with the same people [as in the case of Benetton,]” says Alesi.

With a bit of delay, Ross Brawn and Rory Byrne, with whom Schumacher had previously been at Benetton successfully changed, also Maranello. “It took four years to be world champion, but it happened,” says Alesi. In 1997 Schumacher had his “Dream Team” at Ferrari, in 2000, he became the first world champion in Red.

“Sebastian was in a different Situation,” explained Alesi. So Adrian, don’t be decreased, for example, Newey, the spiritual father of Vettel’s world championship winning car, from Red Bull to Ferrari. In the case of the Scuderia, the German has been twice Vice-world champion. In 2017 and 2018, he fought long for the world title, but lost the duel against Lewis Hamilton.

2021 is replaced Vettel by Carlos Sainz. Alesi believes that it will come between the Spaniards and Charles Leclerc to big problems. “The opposite could be the case,” thinks the Frenchman, who moved once as a young driver for the Scuderia. “For the Management, it is easier to control these two pilots,” he said.

in 2019, it had been a lot of friction between Vettel and Leclerc. Alesi is not the first former formula 1 driver believes that it will come with Sainz to less internal stresses at the Scuderia. Martin Brundle explained that Ferrari Sainz could “control things better” than Vettel.
