The young German driver Sebastian Vettel says that a future drive for Ferrari has always been a dream of his and with a endorsement from 7-time Champion Michael Schumacher, that reality may be looking good. Fernando to Ferrari in 2011? Perhaps Ferrari may have another idea?
“It has always been my goal to one day drive for Ferrari,” Vettel told the German newspaper, “but continuity is also really important and that’s why I am with Red Bull.”
A protege of his countryman Michael Schumacher, however, Vettel does not attempt to hide his affection for Ferrari, with which the great German achieved five of his record seven world titles.
Vettel said it is only possible to become world champion “if you sit in one of the best cars”.
“And Ferrari knows how to build them. They will be right at the front all of the time, because their resources are on a completely different level to ours at Red Bull.”
He answered “I don’t know” when asked if Schumacher will be recommending him to Ferrari decision-makers like Stefano Domenicali and Luca di Montezemolo.
“But I hope I will be making my own luck,” he grinned.
