In comparison to his demeanour during his final season at Red Bull Racing, Sebastian Vettel looks at the very least content at Ferrari.

The German four time Formula One World Champion may well not be chasing victories week after week, or realistically chasing a fifth title as yet, but Ferrari seems to be the place to be to try and challenge Mercedes long-term.

But the media have suggested otherwise.

Up until Nico Rosberg signed a new two-year-deal at Mercedes he was being linked with the Silver Arrows and some media outlets have gone as far as saying that Vettel is frustrated and is looking for a way out of Ferrari.

Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner decided to stir the pot a little which led Vettel to announce that ‘I am pretty happy where I am’ ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Sky Sports Italy’s Antonio Boselli even believes Vettel could extend his current deal.

He said: ‘I think he is happy staying with Ferrari. He has another year of a contract and then he has an option which will end in 2019 – and they might even continue until 2020,’

Boselli continued: ‘The project Ferrari and Vettel have together is a long term project, Right now it is a tough time for Ferrari and Vettel. This year their beginning of the season has been rough for both.

‘The car has not been performing as expected but I think the commitment is long term and Vettel will continue because he wants to achieve a title with Ferrari because it is special, probably more special than with Red Bull.’
