Vettel: No reason to look at other teams

Sebastian Vettel insists he is happy at Red Bull and plays down fresh links to Ferrari
Sebastian Vettel insists there is reason for him to look elsewhere for a drive in F1 after renewed speculation that he is keen to drive for Ferrari at some point in the future.

The German has long been linked to a drive with Ferrari during his career having made no secret of his desire to drive for the Maranello-based team before his time in F1 comes to an end.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner admitted this week that it was understandable that a driver would be keen to drive for Ferrari [See separate story HERE] but Vettel himself insists he is happy where he is.

"There is no reason for me to go elsewhere," he told Sport Bild. "The blue of my car was shining particularly nicely [when testing started for 2011]; I could see the number 1; I thought to myself 'Boy, life is good!'

"You think about how to get the best possible package, and I feel very good with Red Bull."

Nice try to wiggle out of your many dumb comments that should have pissed off your current employer. HAHA Yes..he does need a manager, or a babysitter...just to get him to shut his big mouth! Can't believe he keeps talking to the media about Ferrari. How dumb is this kid? Your loyalty to Red Bull is under-whelming! Maybe Helmut will loose his gleeful wunderkid smile. :0

he gets the most races in a season 'ever' to enjoy that number 1 with bernies 'no problem with bahrain', newey still there they can win with an 'underpowered' renault, so he has 'no' reason to look elsewhere!
