Vet­tel moves closer to sign­ing new Fer­rari deal

F1 Racing - - INSIDER -

The four-time world cham­pion has been of­fered a new con­tract de­spite doubts over his rel­a­tive per­for­mance against Räikkö­nen

Fer­rari have of­fered Se­bas­tian Vet­tel a new two-year con­tract to keep him at the team un­til the end of 2019, ac­cord­ing to sources close to the team. The two par­ties are in the early phases of ne­go­ti­a­tions, which could take some time.

The of­fer comes de­spite ques­tions be­ing raised within the team about the rel­a­tive per­for­mances of Vet­tel and team-mate Kimi Räikkö­nen since the early sum­mer. After a shaky pe­riod that in­cluded weak races in Monaco and Canada, Räikkö­nen’s fu­ture in the team was in doubt.
