"We saw it coming a bit. We already spoke to Carlos about his future in winter, whether he wanted to drive at McLaren or Ferrari. I can understand his reasons. We have always been in contact with Daniel since he became Red Bull We already knew that in the end one of the two would sit in our race car. "

It is not clear which team Vettel will move to, if he will take a break from the sport or retire. He is contracted to race in 2020 for the team, however.

It remains unclear where rumors suddenly came from on May 13 that McLaren had signed Sebastian Vettel. By that time, Ricciardo had already signed his McLaren contract. McLaren is still assumed that they actually wanted Vettel - but after Seidl, Brown now emphasizes that they never negotiated seriously with the German.

¿pbtag | PodcastSGPeterHardenacke | pb¿ "Seb is a great driver, a four-time world champion. We were very far in winter and knew that either Daniel or Carlos would drive for us. Outside of the two of us, we never spoke seriously to anyone. Especially when the news about Seb became known, we [with Ricciardo] were already very far away, "he clarifies.

Ferrari "doesn't look like a happy family," grins Brown. "Seb looks around to see if there is an opportunity for him at Mercedes or Red Bull. Not at McLaren, or definitely not at Ferrari. The next best option would be Renault. But Seb wants to join a team that is unlikely to win in 2021 "Then he will probably resign. Unfortunately."

Negotiations with Ricciardo were well advanced at the time. But it usually takes weeks before concrete contracts are drawn up and signed - after all, this process requires several loops from lawyers. Only when Ricciardo really signed, did everything go really quickly.
