In more than one opportunity Bernie Ecclestone made it clear that he has a great friendship with Sebastian Vettel. In fact, the former head of the F1 advised the German to continue his sports campaign in Aston Martin when Ferrari decided not to renew the contract. Precisely, in a recent interview with Sport 1, the English mogul spoke more about the relationship between Seb and the Scuderia.
“What a lot of people don't know is that Sebastian is very sensitive, he loves to feel loved and that hasn't happened to him at Ferrari. The best thing you can do is forget your past at Ferrari. Those years better forget them. Then this way you can be strong again ”, Bernie explained.
For the nonagenarian, the four-time champion has joined a team in which he will feel more comfortable. “I think he is in a new situation. Ferrari is the past. It's like when it started with Red Bull. The team is like a new player and I'm sure he can go back to his old way there, to what he wanted ”, Stressed.
“Vettel was not happy and did not get all the support. He was probably a bit upset. It's not that he was disappointed in life and didn't want to be old Vettel anymore, it was that he had to be in the right team. I'm sure you're on the right team now. I trust it will be successful there ”, culminated.
Beyond Ecclestone's words, it will be necessary to see how long it takes Vettel to return to the top positions since Aston Martin was the team that turned the least in the preseason, something that may affect its performance in the first races. Although in Formula 1 surprises are usually the order of the day.
