Ferrari denies making Vettel announcement



Ferrari has denied reports it is now officially confirming Sebastian Vettel’s 2015 switch.

The world of F1 social media came alight late on Wednesday when a seemingly official Ferrari profile on Twitter announced: “We are proud to welcome Sebastian Vettel as a member of the Ferrari family.”

Hours before, Ferrari’s actual Twitter account had tantalisingly teased: “Changes are in the air. Something important is going to happen.”

But the actual announcement had been made not by Ferrari’s official Twitter, but one called ‘ScuderiaFerraril’ — with an ‘l’ at the end rather than an ‘i’.

The news, however, was triumphantly reported worldwide by the German news agency DPA.

Ferrari told another German news agency SID: “We have communicated nothing.

“These are rumours in the media that we cannot confirm.” (GMM)
