The chronicles of Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari have ended this season. The former champion is moving on to the newly-rebranded Aston Martin next season. Vettel had the worst year of his career as Ferrari’s power unit issues severely affected their performance all season.
He joined the Red team in 2014 and completed six years with them. However, the German failed to accomplish his goal of winning a championship with the Maranello-based team.
Talking about his time with the Prancing Horse, Vettel revealed the most important person for him at the team.
He said, “Riccardo (Adami, track engineer, editor’s note) from my work group without doubt. I traveled with him and it was important to have him as a pillar, because we already knew each other.
“He understood me, in terms of track performance it was the most important person.”
Vettel continued, “In a larger picture, however, Maurizio Arrivabene. I think that from the outside he was not well understood, it was not easy to work with Marchionnne. He was very particular, he put great pressure on people and with Maurizio he is not always been kind.
“But I think Arrivabene really has a big heart.”
