VET­TEL MUST EARN NEW FER­RARI CON­TRACT

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Fer­rari chief Mau­r­izio Ar­riv­abene has told Se­bas­tian Vet­tel that he must “earn” a new con­tract with the Ital­ian team af­ter an­other dif­fi­cult sea­son. The four-time world cham­pion has failed to win a race this sea­son and has been ac­cused of try­ing to in­volve him­self in ev­ery part of the Scud­e­ria’s oper­a­tion. Vet­tel’s con­tract runs out at the end of next sea­son and it seems a re­newal is not a for­gone con­clu­sion.

“Se­bas­tian has a con­tract with us, we have work to do this year, and also the next. Dur­ing the sea­son we will see,” said Ar­riv­abene. “Every­body has an ob­jec­tive. I have, the team has, Se­bas­tian has, every­body has. So it’s right every­body has to earn their po­si­tion and salary. “Se­bas­tian just needs to fo­cus on the car.” Vet­tel ad­mit­ted that his own form this sea­son has been “up and down”, with Fer­rari fall­ing be­hind Red Bull as Mercedes’ near­est chal­lengers.
