Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has reiterated that his double world champion is not going anywhere.
For weeks the rumours have been ripe about Sebastian Vettel´s alleged pre-signing with Maranello to join Ferrari in 2014, in fact so much so that there is apparently already a contract in place and it is just a matter of time before Vettel can make the transition.
But now Christian Horner is commenting on the rumours, insisting that Vettel is staying put.
“I have spoken with Sebastian about it and he’s made it quite clear that he hasn’t had any dialogue and hasn’t signed anything with Ferrari,” Horner told Reuters. “The rumour mill always will continue.”
Horner´s comments has come at a time when not only Vettel has been rumoured to leave Red Bull for Ferrari, but also team mate Mark Webber has been linked with a move, after this season, to replace Felipe Massa.
“I think most of our team has been going to Ferrari at some point this year, whether it be Adrian [Newey], Mark [Webber], Sebastian, even myself at one stage was supposed to be going.
“Sebastian is very comfortable in the team, the team is very comfortable with Sebastian. He’s been with Red Bull for over 12 years now and I think he will be us for quite a few years to come. I have no concern over Sebastian and where he will be in 2013, 2014 or beyond.”
