Double time world champion Sebastian Vettel says that he is honoured by reports that Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo sees him as a possible Ferrari driver. At the same time he admits no any agreement with Ferrari.
Vettel has been mightily connected with a move to Italian squad in latest few months with some reports even suggestion he already has a verbal agreement with Ferrari.
Di Montezemolo and team principal Stefano Domenicali have also expressed their admiration for him with the final saying the German and Fernando Alonso could “easily co-exist” as team-mates.
But, his current team Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has on several occasions dismissed the rumours.
Vettel was once again asked about a potential move to Ferrari by German tabloid Bild. He replied: “I am honoured that Stefano Domenicali and Luca di Montezemolo see me as a possible Ferrari driver.
“It is clearly flattering, but there is no signal from me. I have not signed, nor agreed with a handshake.
“But if you would ask the 24 drivers in Formula 1 if (they) would like a career with Ferrari, then all would say: Yes! And it is the same with me. It is just an awesome race team, but it has to fit on all sides. Who knows, maybe everything is different and then suddenly I go somewhere else.
“It may even be that I never go anywhere else in my career, because there simply is no better package than Red Bull.”
“I’ve almost grown up with Red Bull, we are a family, I like the atmosphere here in the troops,” he said. It is very tight at the top. This is crucial because I want to defend my title and that is hard enough this year,” he said.
“I can not and will not concern myself with what can happen in the future. Alonso recently said that he was first rumoured to have signed a Ferrari contract in 2005. It then took until 2010 before he became a Red. In between were five years. “
