Sebastian Vettel has brushed aside talk about his future at Ferrari.

With sections of the Italian press saying the German as well as the Maranello team are in ‘crisis’, speculation Vettel may leave Ferrari after 2017 had arisen.

So when asked if any contract talks had taken place, Vettel said in Austin: “I think we are all fairly busy at this time focusing on the four races that are left and in particular preparing for next year.

“I don’t think it’s that important to look into details such as my contract, because it’s all fine for next year,” he insisted.

In truth, there are plenty of rumours flying around about Ferrari, including the future of team boss Maurizio Arrivabene and criticism of president Sergio Marchionne’s approach.

Marchionne’s predecessor Luca di Montezemolo is among those critics.

In a new interview with the German broadcaster RTL, he said: “In formula one, you need the humility to know that you do not win from today to tomorrow.

“If you are not certain you are able, you should not announce you are going to win.

“You have to be patient,” Montezemolo added, “helping the people to make the situation better. You have to have confident in the staff, and provide for them the best conditions so they can achieve.”

Montezemolo does, however, support Vettel.

“From the first meeting you could see that he has Ferrari in his heart,” said the Italian. “It is important for the Scuderia today to have a driver who is so positive in the difficult moments.”
