Horner sure Vettel committed to Red Bull
24 February, 2011
Feb.24 (GMM) Christian Horner insists he is sure Sebastian Vettel is not seriously considering a switch to Ferrari.
New world champion Vettel has mused on several occasions recently about wanting to one day drive for the famous Italian team.
“All drivers have that dream,” commented current Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Some actually say it, but all think of it,” he claimed.
Vettel’s boss Christian Horner, who is attempting to get the 23-year-old to sign a longer contract with Red Bull, told Bild newspaper that he thinks the German’s recent comments reveal his “romantic” side.
“But just because he’s romantic doesn’t mean he’s going to give up everything that we have built together,” insisted the Briton.
“As long as we offer him the perfect car, he will stay here,” said Horner.
Also quoted by the German newspaper, Vettel confirmed: “I am happy with Red Bull — they give me the fastest car.”
Horner admitted that, regarding Ferrari’s history, Red Bull cannot currently compete with the fabled Scuderia.
“We are regarded more as the cool team,” he said. “But who knows, maybe one day we will also be legendary — thanks to Sebastian.”
