Webber expects Vettel at Ferrari

Mark Webber says he one day expects current Red Bull partner Sebastian Vettel to join Ferrari
Mark Webber has said he wouldn't be surprised to one day see his Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel move to Ferrari.

The Scuderia confirmed the signing of Kimi Raikkonen on a two-year deal this week as partner to Fernando Alonso, with Vettel having been mentioned more than once as a possible Ferrari driver of the future.

Raikkonen's deal with Ferrari will now take him through to the end of 2015 when Vettel's current Red Bull agreement is also set to draw to a conclusion.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Webber said he felt Ferrari was still an option for Vettel in the coming season and that the German could well be approached to replace Raikkonen when their respective contracts are coming to an end.

"For lots of reasons Ferrari need to be winning again in Formula 1," he said "It has to happen so this is the first step forward to get the team back in the Constructors'. It is important, Ferrari winning that, and then the Drivers' Championship as well.

"There are so many reasons why it [signing Raikkonen] is a bit of a gamble to help Ferrari.

"There is two years for probably both of them actually I think. And then what they do after that obviously [is] pick Seb up off the back of Red Bull and then they keep moving from there.

"But it's a very short-term aggressive statement from Ferrari to put the team at the front."

Never hear webber speak any dribble, always tells it how it is. If you think vettel won't end up in a Ferrari your a tad silly. I think it's more down to the fact of how much longer Newey hangs around in formula 1 as to how long vettel stays at red bull. Vettel and Newey are a dream team.

marksman. why would you not want to see seb in your beloved Ferrari perhaps he could be the one that brings them back to greatness again, just as schumi did. after all, the present incumbent hasn't done so. I love Ferrari too, and if seb decides to try his luck there, then great. if not, am sure that he will continue to keep rbr at the top of the pile!
