Horner: “Vettel can make Red Bull Racing a legendary team”
Christian Horner have minimized Sebastian Vettel’s desire to drive for Ferrari F1 Team and believes that the German can transform Red Bull Racing into a “legendary” team.
Sebastian Vettel, the new Formula 1 world champion, said several times that he dreams of driving for Ferrari, at a certain moment in his career.
Far from being worried about the German’s wish, the boss, Christian Horner, believes that the driver’s statements are normal, given the tradition Ferrari F1 Team has, but he hopes that Vettel would transform Red Bull into a “legendary” team, too.
“Just because he’s romantic doesn’t mean he’s going to give up everything that we have built together. As long as we offer him the perfect car, he will stay here. We are regarded more as the cool team. But who knows, maybe one day we will also be legendary – thanks to Sebastian,” said the 36 years old Brit for Bild magazine.
Otherwise, shortly after expressing his wish to compete for Scuderia Ferrari, Vettel confirmed he would stay at Red Bull F1 Team as long as he drives a competitive car. “I am happy with Red Bul, they give me the fastest car,” he said
