Vettel extends Red Bull contract to 2015

2013 F1 season

Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull, Circuit de Cataunya, Barcelona, 2013Sebastian Vettel will remain with Red Bull until at least the end of 2015, the team has confirmed.

It extends his previous contract by one year.

Vettel, who joined the team in 2009, scored his 29th career victory on Sunday. All bar one of them were achieved with the Milton Keynes team, for whom he also won the last three world championships.

The 25-year-old was rumoured to be considering a move to Ferrari last year. But the team later stated it would not pair Fernando Alonso with a driver of Vettel’s calibre.

Vettel’s team mate Mark Webber is contracted to the team until the end of this year.

    Sebastian Vettel is the best driver in the past 5 years in F1, no matter what car he had, which is an argument that wasnt being thrown up in his early years, i think it is just sour grapes from fans that their favourite driver hasnt achieved what vettel has (vettel is not my favourite driver, i like alonso more).
    well done to him for staying at redbulll for another 2 years – the best driver in the best car is making a legend that could break all the records. i remember when hamilton came into f1, it looked like he could be the next great, but he has had far too many errors, and lost championships, while Vettel has been sublime 99% of times (except for the team orders controversy – but i will give that to him, as he is young and naive).

  4. Wouldn’t be surprised if they (Vettel / Red Bull) kill Formula 1!
