Sebastian Vettel has conceded that he would love to drive for Ferrari one day – and that it would be difficult to reject the Maranello-based outfit, if they came knocking.
Vettel is currently one of F1’s hottest properties, and looked set to win both the F1 2010 opener in Bahrain and the Australian Grand Prix last weekend, until mechanical gremlins intervened.
Although the German is under contract with Red Bull Racing – having inked a new deal at the end of August last year that will see him stay with the Milton Keynes-based outfit until at least the end of 2011, he added that the allure of racing for the Prancing Horse was something few drivers could resist.
“Right now I feel super-comfortable with Red Bull,” he told German news agency, SID. “[But] the Ferrari legend speaks for itself.
“I think for every driver, it would be something special to go there, but for me I still have a few years in front of me.”
Vettel meanwhile was extremely frustrated at the end of Sunday’s race at Albert Park: “It is massively infuriating and in my mind I’m using the ‘s’ word,” he continued in an interview with the official F1 website.
“To be honest, at this very moment I would like nothing more but to go home – but life goes on. It gives a certain satisfaction to know that from my side I couldn’t have made anything different or better and I think until the moment when the trouble started we’d done a great job.
“We have a very fast car – that is a fact. We just have to make sure that we see the chequered flag [in Malaysia next weekend]. It is only the second race so there is no need to get too nervous. We just have to see that we have a good car at hand for the second half of the season.”
