I respect Lauda very much as a driver and what hes been though in life but he needs to start sticking to what he says. not so long ago he was saying Vettel was only up top becuase of the car he in now hes saying he will win any were? nascar? BTCC? V8's? MotoGP? ...i think not.

The key phrase is: "even if he decides to leave Red Bull in future". Vettel will never leave Red Bull unless they (RB) start to get beaten regularly. He will jump ship, but only to a team that can provide him with a winning car on a regular basis. Don't expect him to be in a Caterham in the very near future.

Please Niki, give me a break. Why Vettel didn't won the title in 2009? Because Brawn GP was the best package and Button which you didn't mentioned alongside Vettel, Alonso, Hamilton and Schumacher was more than enough skilled to win with the best car. Why Vettel wasn't leading until Japan this year. He had not the best car until this GP. Alonso neither and still was 29 points ahead of Vettel. So think first before talking. And concentrate on your job, because you have a better driver than Vettel in board, Lewis Hamilton.

pinky. read the story! niki says anywhere in F1. no mention of v8s etc, and not becase he is in the best car either. niki does change his mind a bit, but isnt everyone entitled to do so? i would imagine that the race in abu and in brazil changed a lot of peoples opinions.

Lauda is only stating the obvious but he contradicts himself on a regular basis so that nobody should take too much notice. The facts speak for themselves Vettel is a three times world champion and world champions tend to have the best car so its a bit of a no brainer. He will stay at RedBull until Adrien Newry retires then likely Ferrari is the one move Vettel and most drivers would consider, its a sort of badge of honour to have driven for Ferrari regardless of their competivness at the time. He stands a very good chance of emulating MS as he is young enough to last another 10 years or so. Also apart from Alonso and Hamilton he does not have too many people around who can challenge him.

What Lauda does not say, but is obviously in his mind, is Vettel will have to change the car in order to be considered as of the same value as the F1 grands (him Lauda in the first degree, ofcourse).
