Time is proving a healer for Sebastian Vettel, who says he doesn’t need an explanation from Ferrari and has moved on already, having signed with Aston Martin after Ferrari opted not to hold on to him.

The F1 driver was told at the beginning of last season that Ferrari would be going with someone else for 2021 and he accepted the decision.

I don’t need to [understand Ferrari‘s decision], to be honest, and it doesn’t change anything,” Vettel told RACER.

“It’s fine for me and I completely accept it, and when Mattia [Binotto] told me on the phone, it was clear.

“It wasn’t like I was trying to fight back or convince him otherwise – not at all.”

The 33-year-old prefers to view the situation as an opportunity than a loss.

“I think that if one door shuts another one will open, and obviously it took a bit of time and it raised a lot of questions about which door I want to open,” said Vettel.

“It’s not that I had all of the teams of choice, but just in terms of what I want to do – more for the future, if I want to stay in Formula 1 or not.

“But obviously I’ve made my decision and opened the door.”

While Carlos Sainz has replaced him at Ferrari, Vettel has taken Carlos Perez’s place at Aston Martin for the 2021 season and he feels he has a few good years left in him.

“I’m quite rational in these things, I look at it, and I don’t see myself in Formula 1 when I’m 40. So, I will have a couple of years, but we’re not looking at 10 more years,” added Vettel.
