Vettel once again pours cold water on Ferrari rumors

(Bernard Asset DPPI for Renault Sport F1)

Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel has once again completely denied rumors that he will move away from Infiniti Red Bull Racing to replace Fernando Alonso at Ferrari next season. The German insists that he 'still has a lot to achieve with the team.' 

The four time world champion has also stated that not only does he have a contract in place for next season and that his aim is to ensure that the team can back to winning ways with the Milton Keynes based outfit. This season has been an extremely tough year for the German who has been comprehensively beaten on a regular basis by new team mate Daniel Ricciardo.

The Australian has taken three victories this season in Canada, Hungary and Belgium and is currently in third place in the drivers championship on 181 points while Sebastian Vettel is yet to win a race this season and is in fifth place in the championship on 124 points having recorded his best result of the season at the Singapore Grand Prix with a second place finish last time out.

The German has revealed that the RB10 simply does not suit his driving style as when he tries to do something with the car it does not react.

Vettel has also stated that Ricciardo is doing a very very good job and that as a result he has helped to boost the morale of the team and shows that the car is not as bad as they had believed. The team are currently in second place in the Constructors championship, 174 points behind the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team with five Grand Prix remaining this season.
