His run at Ferrari has been disappointing no doubt. But we must understand there have been occasions where probably reliability & strategy robbed him. I think it all began from 2014 when young Ricciardo trounced him, obviously his reputation & image was hurt badly. When you have 4 back to back titles, there's excess baggage on your shoulders. 2015 Ferrari move was like fresh start for him, his dream team & a chance to emulate his idol, MS. Expectations were huge and specially when you've been labelled best qualifier on the grid, and replacing someone like Alonso who drove almost perfect races for this team. Started off pretty well with a win very early in his Ferrari career, but unfortunately competitors improved more, team mate started to come good, some reliability issues to go with debatable pit calls & finally trying to overdrive and making mistakes.
I'm not sure but if 2017 we start on back foot, it may tempt him to look elsewhere. All drivers are going for championships, he wants to surpass that magic figure of 7. But yes, he has lost some image that he had before 2014.
As said before, he is a multiple times world champ. He knows how to win, how to motivate team behind you, he will bounce back. Ferrari needs him, he needs Ferrari.

Seems Vettel lashed out, calling Alonso an 'idiot' while driving.

CAVALLINO RAMPANTE PER SEMPRE
Vettel disagrees with penalty, but still admits that he moved under braking! I cant understand him, he is embarrassing himself! The rule is clear, no moving under braking!
Vettel confirmed. “I kept the car straight for more than the majority of the braking. So I think, from my point of view, the reason why Daniel locked up so badly is because there was no grip on the inside.
I for one am sick and tired of finger boy's moaning. He is doing SF no good by coming across as a cry baby. He is not worthy of our beautiful car, badge and history.
