Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel: A partnership destined to fail from the beginning

Arrivabene Ferrari blunder 'unacceptable' Arrivabene Critical of ‘Unacceptable’ Mistakes from Ferrari Pit Wall in Japan Qualifying

Knowing Mr. Verstappen was carrying a penalty, Mr. Vettel still made a decision to go for an ambitious run on him into the high-speed Spoon corner. The race stewards deemed the 21-year old had come back on track in an unsafe manner.

Max Verstappen (NL), Red Bull Racing.

Vettel challenged Verstappen for third down the inside of the Spoon left-hander after an early-race safety vehicle restart, which resulted in a collision and sent the Ferrari driver spinning.

"It was quite clearly a penalty because Max went off the track and rejoined the track unsafely", explained Whiting. I think that was a fairly straightforward one for the stewards.

And when asked whether Vettel deserved a penalty for the move, Verstappen compared it to his ill-fated divebomb on the German in the closing stages of the Chinese Grand Prix - which spun both drivers around and yielded a 10-second penalty for the Dutchman.

"The wedding was officiated by the bride's aunt, Dorothy Bush Koch", stated the family. Coyne proposed in the same spot Barbara's grandparents became engaged 75 years ago.

"He got halfway alongside and Max turned in - a bit of a classic really".

Verstappen went on to finish third regardless, and when told by team boss Christian Horner after the race that he wouldn't be "too popular with Ferrari and the Italians", he jovially replied: "That's not my problem, they were too aggressive". "Opinions will vary whether it was equal blame, but certainly no driver was predominantly to blame". As he rejoined the track the pair made contact, and the stewards held the Red Bull driver responsible, penalising him five seconds.

"In China he came charging down the inside into the hairpin, and nearly T-boned Seb", he said. "But I think that is wrong". I haven't had a look at the one from China yet, but my recollection of that incident was that it was a very clear case of causing a collision. I will talk about it with him when it is the right time, so this is the way I would prefer. The gap was there, but as soon as he saw me, he defended, but I had the inside.

For one reason or another, this partnership just isn't working out and fans are beginning to get fed up with the mismanagement and strategical errors coupled with silly mistakes by one of the sport's most recognizable faces, which leaves just one thought in mind - maybe this pairing was destined to fail from the very beginning? "Looking back I think it was a similar scenario to China, and I got a penalty there, but at the end of the day it is like it is and it's just not nice that it happened".
