Former Formula One driver Mark Webber has said that former teammate Sebastian Vettel will be better off with Ferrari after going through a lot of struggle with Red Bull Racing last year.
The Aussie and the German were stable mates at the Austrian team between 2009 and 2013 – a period of complete dominance for the team during which it won four consecutive Formula One Constructors’ Championships and Vettel became a fur time Formula One drivers’ champion. However, the 27 year old struggled to come to terms with the car last season and comprehensively overshadowed by Daniel Ricciardo, who replaced Webber in the team.
And speaking of his move to Ferrari this season, the Australian said that Vettel is not a silly guy and he realised he needed a fresh challenge and new motivations and he frankly believes that the decision to leave Red Bull Racing was made very early in the season, probably even before the start of it.
