Red Bull Racing can be Ferrari-like 'myth' too - Vettel

Red Bull Racing is "well on the way" to achieving the same sort of "mythical status" as fellow grandee F1 teams like Ferrari. That is the claim of Sebastian Vettel, who after winning his third consecutive drivers' championship with the energy drink-owned team played down persistent rumours he could soon make the move to fabled Ferrari.

"Clearly Ferrari and Mercedes have a great history and a kind of mythical status," the German told Sport Bild. "But we're well on the way to achieving the same with Red Bull Racing. Realising it needs to be our goal," added Vettel.

F1 legend Niki Lauda, however, can imagine Vettel eventually hanging up his Red Bull helmet and making the switch to another top team. "He will eventually move somewhere else," fellow triple world champion Lauda, who won his titles with Ferrari and McLaren, told CNN. "It's normal. Any skier changes his skis every year -- so you have to change your cars at least once in your history."

Former Renault boss Flavio Briatore, however, ruled out the concept of Vettel joining Fernando Alonso at Ferrari. "It only works in a dream," he told Italian radio Rai. "It would be a disaster." (GMM)
