Well, as long as Fernando Alonso is there anyway.
Sir Jackie Stewart has urged Sebastian Vettel not to trade Red Bull for Ferrari unless there is a major shift in power among the teams this 2012 F1 season or after.
In case you didn’t know, Sebastian Vettel has been linked with a move to Ferrari for the 2014 season where he will link up with former World Champion Fernando Alonso. Since joining Red Bull in 2009, Vettel finished runner-up to Jenson Button in his first season with the team and then went on to win back to back titles.
With this in mind, Stewart does not believe that the German should leave the Milton Keynes squad to go head to head with Fernando Alonso. “No I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t do that at this time. I think Alonso’s far too strong for that. I think Alonso is so mature that he would see anybody off because of the relationship he has already built within Ferrari,” Stewart told James Allen on F1.
“I think it’s much better to let that pass for the moment and stay with Red Bull because he’s got a team of people that he knows intimately now who are really imperative for him to have and they feel that it’s imperative for them to have him. I wouldn’t break that mold at this time. In fact I would almost wait until I had a very bad year with a Red Bull before I would think of leaving.”
“Then my option would be ‘who am I going to get who is going to provide me with what I need’ – and it may not necessarily be Ferrari.”
