New contract is up to Vettel, says Ferrari boss

  |   Sports

Ferrari have told Sebastian Vettel he just has to sign on the dotted line to stay with the Formula One glamor team next season.

Vettel has delayed contract talks to focus on the championship battle, saying there will be plenty of time over the summer, and any haggling is likely to be about money and the number of years.

The German, a four times world champion, moved 20 points clear of closest rival Lewis Hamilton after finishing runner-up to the Briton's Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas at the Red Bull Ring.

With the 20 round season approaching the halfway point at Silverstone next weekend, Vettel has won three races and it would probably have been four had he been given one more lap on Sunday.

"I think the way we are set up right now, we find ourselves very happy and the focus is on this year despite the fact for next year there is nothing on paper," he said in May. Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda has also dismissed a move.
