Vettel confirmed to be out of Ferrari by the end of 2020 at the latest. But if/when we go back to racing, I think I need to make another one of my bold ass predictions...
Yes, it is highly likely that he sees out 2020 on the grid, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it might end with Vettel not in a Ferrari, especially if he either intentionally upsets LeClerc’s chances at wins or feels underappreciated despite knowing he’s out at the end of the year. Hell, he could even just get really mopey and not try hard enough.
But you know who knows how to drive a Ferrari?
And knows how to get to the factory?
And probably still has everyone’s contact info saved to his phone?
.....Oh yeah, we can all go BWOAH TO THE FUTURE!
I predict Kimi has at least a 50/50 shot of being back in Red for 2020. Not permanently, just until Sainz or whoever comes in. And in the event that Vettel does decide to leave the grid entirely, I could easily see someone like Hulkenberg or one of the rookies who got the short straw for 2020 getting a chance to drive around in an okay car for a few races.
