The German has a contract until the end of 2020 with Ferrari, but some of his statements at the beginning of the season questioning the technical and sporting direction of the championship, and his tremendous anger in Canada for a penalty that left him without a victory, they have thrown firewood for those who doubt their continuity in the 'Great Circus' even at the end of this season. But that does not happen in Maranello, because Mattia Binotto, director of the team, still sees his four-time champion strong.

Sebastian is still ahead in the World Championship, if there were another case of 50-50 would be favorable for Sebastian.But as the championship progresses, Charles has already shown that he is a very quick, as is logical, we will not stop him from winning poles or winning races. "
