Very interesting, particularly if it happened at the last minute like its being reported. Does that mean there was some sort of pre-agreement in place then??
It seems the finger is pointing at Vettel...
"With Kimi Raikkonen’s retirement opening up a spot beside Sebastian Vettel, it looked to be a perfect fit.
But it fell through at the last minute, and Ricciardo has now claimed someone inside Ferrari vetoed the move.
Evidently someone said no when I arrived. Who? I’d like to know, but maybe I have an idea…
While Ricciardo did not give a name to his suspect, he may be referring Sebastian Vettel, who is currently the No. 1 driver at Ferrari having left Red Bull a season after the Aussie arrived, and outperformed him thus upsetting the apple cart.
When pushed further on why his move to Ferrari broke down, Ricciardo was unsure, but hinted the door was open for him to move there in the future – should he decide not to extend his stay at Renault longer than the initial two-year deal."
