At the end of their sixth season together, Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari will part ways.

The Scuderia announced on Tuesday that an agreement to extend the four-time champion's contract beyond the 2020 Formula One campaign could not be reached.

Speculation is already rife about the next step for Vettel, who has been linked with Renault, McLaren and – though seemingly less likely – Mercedes.
