“They have a plan and a car with potential. He has the chance to lead them somewhere – he’s not done yet.”
Speculation over a prospective move to Racing Point has ramped up this week after Vettel shared a ride with their team principal Otmar Szafnauer after last Sunday’s British Grand Prix.
Vettel was happy to joke about the encounter but urged people not to read too much into it as speculation over his future mounts.
“Well I signed something, I’m not sure – he told me it was a waiver in case he crashed,” said Vettel. “That was a joke – just making sure because nowadays people get everything a bit wrong.
“From my side, there’s no news, nothing to announce. I’ve known Otmar for a long time and I’ve been in his car before but nobody was interested… If you speak to the people that you know, that’s not uncommon.”
