Vettel wants Red Bull to emulate Ferrari
7 December 2012 – Sebastian Vettel is hoping that Red Bull will be able to emulate the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes in coming seasons and establish itself as one of the Formula 1’s biggest names. The German and his team have claimed three successive Drivers’ and Constructors’ titles, breaking various records from the sport’s 62-year history.
"Clearly Ferrari and Mercedes have a great past, a kind of myth," Vettel explained to Germany’s Sport Bild. "But we're well on the way to achieving the same with Red Bull. Realizing this need to be our goal."
As Formula 1 moves into the winter break, Vettel has admitted that the only thing on his mind ahead of the 2013 campaign is fighting for a fourth world title.
"I'm going to recharge my batteries and get ready to win title number four," he added. "It has nothing to do with greed, it’s just the reason why I drive in Formula 1."
Vettel will enter a sixth full season in Formula 1 next year, his fifth with Milton Keynes-based Red Bull. During his time in the sport to date he has picked up three world titles, 26 race victories, a further 20 podium finishes and 36 pole positions.
