Is Leclerc's promotion to Ferrari a sign it's losing faith in Sebastian Vettel's ability to deliver a title? If he's as good as is believed, and he knows it, it's hard to imagine Leclerc playing a better second fiddle to Vettel than Raikkonen has for too long. Could this end up like Ricciardo/Vettel in 2014?

Consider that Ferrari had Fernando Alonso driving for it for five years and now Sebastian Vettel for four seasons. Between them they've won six world championships, but with Ferrari neither won a single one.
This means Ferrari has to take a high percentage of the blame for those failures, especially during the Alonso years. This year it's running at about 50/50 between Vettel and Ferrari in terms of responsibility, but I'm pretty sure frustration at Maranello must be about boiling over.
