During today’s press conference, Sebastian Vettel revealed that there were never discussions with Ferrari: “There was no sticking point. It was obviously a surprise to me when I got the call from Mattia, when he told me that there was no further intention from the team to continue. We never got into any discussions, there was never an offer on the table and therefore, there was no sticking point.”

Speaking about the plans for his future, Sebastian said: “At the moment I’m not really having any [talks]. Looking forward obviously I want to make sure I make the right decision for myself and my future. I think I have a very competitive nature. I’ve achieved a lot in the sport and I’m motivated and willing to achieve more. To do so, I think, I need the right package, and the right people around me. So that’s what I’m looking out for at the moment. If the right opportunity should arise, then I think it is quite clear. If that’s not the case, then I probably have to look out for something else. If the right thing comes together and comes up, then I’m willing to continue. I feel that I have much more to give. If that’s not the case and doesn’t come together, then, as I said, [it’s] probably time to do something else. I am of the conviction that if you are prepared to let’s say shut the door, then you should be prepared to shut that door, and not shut it and expect it to open again. I think you have to be aware of the decision that you are making at the time, and that’s why also I’m not rushing into anything. I think it’s good to get the season under go, but the next weeks and months will probably bring some more clarity.”
