Vettel travelled to Italy to visit Ferrari headquarters

The German driver travelled to Italy to visit Ferrari headquarters at Maranello and for a meeting with Mattia Binotto.

Tension remains high between Sebastian Vettel and team-mate Charles Leclerc and the duo were at loggerheads at the Russian GP last week.

Charles Leclerc let Sebastian Vettel pass him early on in Sochi but Sebastian Vettel Vettel did not return the favour later in the race when the instruction came down from Scuderia Ferrari chiefs.

“Sebastian Vettel started the day with a positive and constructive meeting with Team Principal Mattia Binotto before joining the engineers,” the statement read.

“In the afternoon, it was time to get in the simulator cockpit for a session assessing the SF90 running in different track conditions.”

“I was coming here anyway, it’s a shame I only make it so rarely but hopefully I can make it a bit more often,” Vettel said.

“I would like to do more but obviously time, we have a lot of races as well but let’s see, maybe I need better organisation and come back to watch.”
