Vettel denies signing Ferrari deal for 2014

Sebastian Vettel during previews to the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix at the Monte Carlo Circuit on May 23, 2012 in Monte Carlo, Monaco.May 28 (GMM) Reigning double world champion Sebastian Vettel has scoffed at reports that he has signed a ‘pre-contract’ to move to Ferrari for the 2014 season.

Two British Sunday newspapers reported the rumour just ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.

“Maybe they needed to fill up some space in their newspapers,” the reigning world champion, who remains under contract to Red Bull for the foreseeable future, told the Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung in Monaco.

“I have signed nothing,” the 24-year-old German insisted.

As for why he was the only missing team member when Red Bull celebrated Mark Webber’s Monaco victory by leaping into Red Bull’s harbour pool, Vettel answered: “I didn’t want a swim. And I didn’t have any spare clothes.”

Vettel finished fourth, losing his championship lead to Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.
