'Ferrari to blame for Vettel failure' - Todt

FIA President Jean Todt has suggested that a lack of unity at Ferrari is to blame for Sebastian Vettel failing to emulate his Formula 1 hero Michael Schumacher.

The German has failed to win any titles with the Scuderia, having arrived with four-titles won at the beginning of the decade.

The 32-year-old will leave the team at the end of the season, and former Ferrari team principal Todt offered his thoughts on why the partnership has failed to bring about championship success.

“The result, good or bad, you can always explain it,” Todt told Sky Sports F1.

“Together with Michael, the whole team at Ferrari, we had so much success because we had a very united, strong team, who were supportive to each other, mainly in the difficult times than in the good times.

“It’s easy to be together when all is good, but you see a good sailor in a rough sea.

“When we were in a rough sea, we were all on the boat, and I think that’s what made the difference.”

It is not yet known whether another opportunity will appear for Vettel in Formula 1. Linked with the Renault drive made vacant by Daniel Ricciardo's switch to McLaren, the German's only other option appears to be retirement.

Todt added: “Sebastian Vettel is one of the greatest talents in motorsport.

“An announcement has been done, but he will not drive for his actual team beyond 2020. There are a lot of other opportunities.

“We can only wish him the best, and I really feel that whoever will take him, will be very lucky."
