Vettel was running in P17 on Lap 6 and had the Williams of George Russell hunting him down.

The four-time World Champion was then told over team radio that there was an issue with the rear-left of the car.

That issue turned out to be the brakes which had exploded on the run up to the Parabolica.

Vettel confirmed it was a brake failure and would go straight on at Turn 1, taking out the polystyrene.

From there Vettel managed to crawl back to the pits and retire from the race as his Ferrari misery continues.

The German racer came into Ferrari’s home race with a best finish of P6, but, currently languishing all the way down in P13 in the Drivers’ Championship, his situation in 2020 shows no signs of improvement.
