Yet another Austrian newspaper is reporting that triple world champion Sebastian Vettel has extended his contract with Red Bull through until the end of 2016.

From Melbourne last week, the Kleine Zeitung newspaper claimed the German driver had agreed to extend his current deal from 2014 to 2015, including an ‘option’ for the following season as well.

The Salzburger Nachrichten newspaper, usually the publication of choice when Red Bull’s Austrian billionaire owner Dietrich Mateschitz gives a rare interview, is now reporting the same.

Vettel, 25, is quoted as saying: “I never have anything to say about contracts.

“All I can say is that I feel very good and comfortable in the Red Bull family, and am wasting no thoughts on going somewhere else.” (GMM)
