Ferrari’s president Luca di Montezemolo rules out rumours that his team wants to sign Sebastian Vettel
According to some reports, it was revealed that Team Ferrari was interested in the 2010 Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel and that the team wanted to sign him as soon as possible.
This meant that the team might have a chance of signing him after the 2011 Formula 1 season and since Sebastian is also interested, it seemed that it is just “meant to be.”
However, Ferrari’s president Luca di Montezemolo recently stated that the team is not interested in signing Sebastian Vettel anytime soon and that the team has “other things on mind.”
The team recently revealed its new car the F150 in Italy and it seems that the team has done a great job with their new chassis. It would be interesting to see how their car performs at the first pre-season test session in Valencia where one of Ferrari’s
main rivals Mercedes and Red Bull Racing will reveal their new cars for the 2011 Formula 1 season.
Sebastian Vettel won the 2010 Formula 1 season after he snatched the drivers’ standings lead from Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso at the very last race in Abu Dhabi. Sebastian won the race while Fernando finished in 7th place
and he failed to score sufficient points to retain his lead.
Nevertheless, Luca insists that Ferrari do not want to sign the 2010 world champion as their future driver since they are relying on some of their own “students” for the prestigious seat in the team.
“There is absolutely nothing going on, apart from the congratulations for a wonderful season and the fact that he knew how to benefit from the last race in Abu Dhabi,” the Ferrari president said.
Other than that, di Montezemolo clarified that the team and Sebastian are not in contact with each other and there is no certain “development” in progress for the future between them.
“I hope that [the next Ferrari driver] will come from the Ferrari driver academy, because that would mean that he's a top star,” he said.
It is believed that Luca might be interested in Jules Bianchi, who is going to be the test driver for Ferrari in 2011 and he is a product of Ferrari’s academy.
