I don't see the need for Vettel to retire. Leclerc is revered as one of the best drivers in F1 already by many, and quite frankly, if that where true, Vettel is showing supreme raw speed (as he damn well should being a 4x wdc). Faster than I imagined, actually. Has Vettel made mistakes, of course he has. Not putting that up for debate. So has Leclerc. But the ''has been'' argument that keeps being offered I don't see it anymore. Do I think Vettel is the best driver in the field? No. Is Lewis? No. Unless Ferrari can get Alonso out of retirement or put Verstappen in their car, they'll not have the best driver. But they have 2 very good ones. Both are eager to impress (for good or bad, be the judge). Ferrari needs to stop worrying about their drivers they have (chance of getting better is small at best) and build a quick car. Either driver is good enough to fight Mercedes tooth and nail if the car they have is as quick as the Mercedes. We have the engine. We need the chassis. If they build a car that's a bit slower they need to find a driver that can make up that difference. Either steal Verstappen or entice Alonso out of retirement. Something tells me the former is easier to accomplish.
