'No Vettel regime at Red Bull'

03 July 2013, 18:02

NURBURG, Germany - Formula 1 World champion Sebastian Vettel sets high demands for Red Bull but insists he is not "imposing a Vettel regime".

Vettel said that an all-out effort was needed to ensure continued success with which he and Red Bull have won three straight world titles.

He said: "There is no Vettel regime here, everyone has his freedom but I expect everybody to take this as serious as I do."


He was speaking ahead of the 2013 German GP at the Nurburgring.

Vettel said: "Of course I am involved in matters concerning development of the car and I expect to be asked whom I could imagine as second driver - but it is not my decision.

"I don't sit down with somebody and say: 'Sign here'. That is none of my business. My job is to be a racing driver."

Team mate Mark Webber will leave F1 at the end of 2013 to race for Porsche. Vettel's new partner is expected to be either Kimi Raikkonen (currently at Lotus) or one of Toro Rosso's drivers - Jean-Eric Vergne or Daniel Ricciardo.

He said: "I am not team principal but I am here in my fifth year. I have an influence on the team's motivation, on the atmosphere in the paddock... everybody knows what I want.

"They have no problem with it. Of course I am demanding, I want everyone to be disciplined and do their job as good as they can."

He wanted to motivate as a role model.
