To say "We're not trying to get him, as he has signed a contract with Red Bull until forever." does not equate to Lauda declaring that Mercedes is not interested in signing Vettel.

Far from it. It simply states that at this point in time there are legal obstacles to them doing so. It manages to efficiently and completely sidestep the issue. Which was of course, exactly his intention.......

Better to stay where he is. No one at RBR can tell him what to do and is clearly number 1 driver. If MW retires whoever they get will always be number 2 while SV is there. No parity.

Going to Mercedes with Lewis there would end in tears for one of them, probably Lewis.

Same for Ferrari with Alonso.

Perhaps best option is a SV single car team?

Didn't mind the guy prior to Malaysia but since then lost all respect for him. Obvious there wasn't any team enforced punishment with his idiotic comments in China.

Oh, that feels much better.
