It depends on a conjoined decision from BMW Sauber and Red Bull. I think that at the beginning of next week I will already have an answer, if Sebastian doesn't return to the World Series by Renault, we will drive with another driver from Red Bull.''


Speed??

:cool:

Vettel - no plans to employ a manager

He is only 20 and still a Formula One rookie, but Toro Rosso driver Sebastian Vettel is one of the only racers on the grid that does not have a manager.

The German news agency SID revealed that the former BMW Sauber test driver has always handled his own affairs at the pinnacle of racing.

Vettel said he has no plans to start looking for a manager, even though he is now considered among the sport's most promising flock of rising young racers.

"Until now I have always arrived on time to get to the grid.

There is no reason why that would change in the near future," he added.

I saw Vettel in a talk show last year. He is increadibly relaxed, smart and clear minded. He will go far, both on and off track and if there is any driver that is suited to manage himself, it is Sebastian. Altough, I would, if I was him, hire someone that takes care of the boring stuff and helps giving a second opinion and an alternative point of view.

Really agree and I really like him :)

He had to get used to a new race engineer (Riccardo Adami) this winter btw, the one that last year took care of Liuzzi. He also got a new data engineer (Andrea Landi). Vettel feels ready for the season.

I've always felt that race car drivers don't really need managers. If you're good enough you'll get a phone call from interested parties. All you'd really need is a contract lawyer.
