Sebastian Vettel has been under fire again from the Italian press after being outshone by Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc in his last two races.

Leclerc finished ahead of the German at both the Austrian and British Grand Prix.

La Gazetto dello Sport stated, as per Sports Mole: “Ferrari has a new leader. Leclerc is combative and energetic and has finally captured the heart of the Ferrari fans.

“Vettel has shown that he is not the driver that Ferrari wants. It is now clear that something is no longer working.”

Another Italian sports outlet, La Repubblica, condemned the former Red Bull driver, writing: “For a long time, Vettel has no longer looked like a four-time world champion, while the little prince Leclerc was driver of the day.”

Toto Wolff: “Hamilton fastest lap was “absurd”
