The 2017 championship leader’s first three-year deal contract with the Maranello team runs out this year.
President Sergio Marchionne is quoted by Italian media: “I have told him very clearly that we are ready if he wants to stay with us.
“It’s up to him.”
Vettel, 30, said recently that amid his championship battle with Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, he is not rushing to enter contract talks.
Not interested in Alonso for 2018
Marchionne told Sky Sports in Italy that not interested in Fernando Alonso for 2018; the Italian F1 outfit join Mercedes, Red Bull in shutting door on Fernando.
“Maybe he might have some interest for us, not us for him,” said Marchionne at the Austrian GP.
Kimi Raikkonen’s future again appears far less certain.
The Finn has finished on the podium just twice in the last 21 races and, although Marchionne said ‘we will continue discussing with Kimi’, he was also quoted as describing Raikkonen as a “laggard” for his inconsistent form.
