"I really think Mugello deserves to host a Formula 1 Grand Prix," said the 32-year-old after test drives on the track north of Florence.
Sebastian Vettel had a lot of explosives before the start of his farewell season at Ferrari harmonic course of his last six months in red now seems questionable. The 32-year-old told his version of the separation from the Scuderia for the first time on Thursday afternoon before the Austrian Grand Prix (Sunday, 3.10 p.m. / RTL and Sky): The team therefore gave him up against his will.
There was "no sticking point" when negotiating a new contract, said Vettel, because no negotiations had taken place: "It was surprising when team boss Mattia Binotto called me and said that the team no longer wanted to continue with me. There was no discussion, there was no offer on the table. "
Brundle: Foreseeable Ferrari separation will "inspire" Vettel 2020

For the 32-year-old it is his sixth season in red. And he will want to use this to prove his class says Martin Brundle. "I think Vettel will fly to be honest," says the former Formula 1 driver and Sky expert in an interview with selected media, including 'Motorsport-total.com'.
The press release on the separation in May explicitly mentioned a joint decision. At the time it was rumored that Ferrari had offered the four-time world champion a short-term contract with significantly reduced pay. Vettel also contradicted this version with his statements. Ferrari increasingly relies on young star Charles Leclerc, the contract with the Monegasque had extended the racing team until 2024.
He has not yet decided on his future from 2021, comes "the right offer", then Vettel wants to continue: "I have the feeling that I can do even more." "The right package and the right people around me are needed."
Only an offer from the world champion racing team Mercedes seems attractive at the moment, he probably does not see himself as a driver in a midfield team. However, the first option of the Silver Arrows is likely to be a further collaboration with the working duo consisting of world champion Lewis Hamilton (England) and Valtteri Bottas (Finland).
A one-year break and the later return to Formula 1, however, currently play no role in his considerations. "When you are ready to close the door, you should really be ready for it and not hoping it will open again."
Ferrari takes the remaining hope .
