Domenicali fuels Vettel-to-Ferrari rumours

Thu, 21 June 2012, 08:35

Jun.21 (GMM) Team boss Stefano Domenicali has heaped fuel on speculation Sebastian Vettel could be headed to Ferrari.

While Red Bull’s back-to-back champion recently denied reports he has signed a 2014 ‘pre-contract’, Domenicali admitted simply that “one should never say never”.

The subject was back up for discussion recently when the Italian sat down alongside F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone for an interview with German reporters for the Auto Bild and Sport Bild publications.

Ferrari faithfully republished the transcript this week, featuring an inquisitor telling Domenicali that Vettel should wait until Fernando Alonso’s career is over because “two cocks cannot live in the same hen house”.

Domenicali answered: “I think they are both intelligent guys and they could easily coexist together.”

As an interesting aside, the correspondent for Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo – Livio Oricchio – reminded his readers this week what Alonso thinks of Vettel.

Referring to the German’s 2012 season so far in comparison to his meteoric 2011, the Spaniard insisted: “With a normal car, he’s not a Martian.”
