Therefore, the Italian F1 team have already begun listing other potential replacements for Sebastian Vettel.
The four-time world champion has not yet agreed to a one-year extension on his current contract with Ferrari.
According to Italian outlet, La Gazetta dello Sport Ferrari have set their budget at £11m for Vettel’s contract.
And they’re already making contingency plans should Vettel make it clear he won’t agree to those terms.
The report states Ferrari have listed Daniel Ricciardo, Carlos Sainz and Antonio Giovinazzi as three possible candidates to replace Vettel.
