Sebastian Vettel has extended his contract with Red Bull Racing until the end of 2015 according to a brief statement from the team:
“Infiniti Red Bull Racing is happy to confirm that World Champion Sebastian Vettel has extended his multi-year contract with the team until the end of 2015,” a brief statement issued by the World Champions read.
“A previous member of the Red Bull Junior squad, Sebastian first drove for Red Bull Racing in 2009. During his Formula One career, the 25-year-old has achieved 29 wins, 51 podiums and 39 pole positions.”
It is an interesting move as Vettel has had terrific success with the team and with team boss Christian Horner and Team brain Adrian Newey, they’ve proved unstoppable over the past three years. the Vettel domination could continue but the twist will be the 2014 regulation changes and time will tell if Newey and team will get on top of the new rule book.
There was speculation that Vettel could make a move to Ferrari in the waning era of their current champion Fernando Alonso. It seems the appeal of a Newey-designed car and unlimited development budget on hand by a energy drink company that has defied global economic depression was simply too alluring. The bigger question may be…who will his teammate be? rumors have Kimi Raikkonen moving to Red Bull ahead of Toro Rosso drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne.
