Berger tips Vettel to stay at Ferrari beyond 2017

Published on 19 Apr 2017 10:26

Ferrari's hopes of keeping Sebastian Vettel on board beyond 2017 have taken a giant leap forward. That is the view of F1 legend Gerhard Berger, who before the start of the season warned that German Vettel could elect to leave the Italian team. But now he says: "With Ferrari performing, there is no reason for him to not stay."

Indeed, quadruple world champion Vettel has won two of the three grands prix so far this year, and is leading the championship from Mercedes' Sebastian Vettel. "Of course, if there is a stretch where he doesn't win any races, there will be enormous pressure," Berger told the German broadcaster Sky.

"But it looks at the moment that they are on the right track. I cannot imagine anything changing," the former Ferrari and McLaren driver added. (GMM)

It's always an idiotic idea to ask some dude-random the opinion of what someone would do unless you directly ask that certain someone what they'd like to share.
