Vettel would like Ferrari drive in future
16 May, 2010
May 16 (GMM) Sebastian Vettel has repeated his desire to one day race a Ferrari in formula one.
With Vettel under a longer contract to Red Bull, his teammate, Mark Webber, is being linked with a move for 2011 to the famous Italian team.
“I am very happy with Red Bull,” the 22-year-old German told Spain’s El Pais newspaper.
“I am not going anywhere else, but in the future, I don’t know. “I want to fight for the world championship, and if you look at the past, Ferrari has always designed very competitive cars.”
“Why not go there in a few years?” Vettel admitted.
He added: “Ferrari is unlike any other team, it’s a legend. There are other brands that achieve great success, but Ferrari is special.”
Bernie Ecclestone is said to be pushing very hard for Vettel, the F1 chief executive’s unabashed favourite, to end up in red overalls.
“I don’t think that’s true,” Vettel insisted. “I have a good relationship with Bernie, but fortunately I will decide my future.”
