The pressure at Ferrari is enormous. You don't have the weight of just the team and fans behind you, but a relentless Italian media and the weight of an entire country rests on your shoulders. Vettel never got much love here, during his stint at Ferrari or before. He's nowhere near as bad as people here often think he is or as the last 2 seasons showed. Ferrari refused to do anything about the rear since 2019 and now only will do it after he's left. It's not just Vettel struggling with it, so is the Haas team (Who buy their parts from Ferrari), Leclerc also doesn't find it easy. Leclerc does an amazing job regardless. With the way Binotto handled the entire situation, Vettel quite clearly put in the bare minimum effort required. It's clear the distance the team took from him this year. Shameful behavior from the Ferrari team. I think next year we'll see a much improved, happier Vettel. That said, I don't believe he ranks among the top top drivers any longer.
