Reports that Sebastian Vettel is considering a switch to Ferrari sometime soon are "nonsense". That is the claim of Dietrich Mateschitz, the reclusive billionaire owner of the energy drinks company Red Bull. He was speaking to the Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung after German Vettel on Sunday won his third consecutive drivers' world championship with Red Bull.

Mateschitz said: "Every driver wants to go to Ferrari one day, but for the moment (for Vettel) it is complete nonsense. While Fernando Alonso is there, it is absurd to think Vettel would go there too." Vettel said on Sunday that his current contract with Red Bull runs to the end of 2014. "At the moment, I don't see any point thinking about another team or something else. I'm extremely happy in the position I am," said the German driver. (GMM)
