Vettel coy over McLaren speculation

Sebastian Vettel says he is not thinking about leaving Red Bull, despite rumours of an offer from McLaren.

McLaren is pushing to secure the best possible driver partnership ahead of its Honda reunion next season, with reigning World Champion Vettel and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso believed to have been contacted by the team.

But Vettel, who has a contract with Red Bull through 2016, has stated that he is in no rush to decide his future.

“We are not yet where we want to be, particularly on my side, so there is a lot of work and thoughts going into that which is my main attention.”

Vettel, yet to win a race this season while new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo has notched up three victories, denied suggestions that he is in need of a fresh challenge.

“I think at the moment I have plenty of challenge, to be honest,” the German went on to explain.

“My situation hasn’t changed and I’m happy where I am. But you never know what’s happening in the future. Right now I don’t feel the need to do something different.”
