Recently axed Torro Rosso driver, Brendon Hartley has been given an F1 lifeline as Ferrari enlist him as one of their 2019 simulator drivers.

It’s not the first time the Kiwi has made headlines this off season, as Hartley sensationally accused Torro Rosso of first planning his departure from the team as early as the Monaco GP in 2018.

Well, lightning has struck twice as the 29 year old has again gone public to voice concern over his future, this time taking aim at his new employer.

“Plans to oust me as the Ferrari simulator driver have already begun.”

Hartley believes negotiations are already in place to terminate his contract, just days after he signed it.

“There’s not much between me and the simulator, but I spilt water on the computer so I know they’ll hold it against me.”

Seeking guidance, Hartley was recently spotted dining with former Ferrari Team Principal, Maurizio Arrivabene, a man who’s no stranger to feeling the cold blade of the Scuderia.

Sources report that the dinner didn’t last very long due to inevitable language barriers.

“I no speak New Zealand.” – A confused Arrivabene.

Brendon Hartley has already begun authoring his next ‘Players Tribune’ article following the success of “How I’ll Remember It…” which told the story of his Torro Rosso exit.

“How I Claimed My Redundancy Package…” will be released at the end of the season.
