With Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff playing down a potential move for a big name driver, Sebastian Vettel has publicly stated that his future is clear.

Since Mercedes returned to the sport as a manufacturer they have always had a German driver in their line-up.

Seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher returned to the sport following his retirement to drive for the Silver Arrows, whilst Nico Rosberg has also always been part of the team.

So it’s understandable that the media at least, have linked, not only 22-year-old German Pascal Wehrlein, but also four-time Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel with replacing the outgoing champion Nico Rosberg.

However Vettel’s current contract with Ferrari runs until the end of the 2017 season.

‘I think it’s not a big secret that both myself and Kimi [Raikkonen] have a contract for next year.

‘So it should be clear.’
Vettel said as quoted by Sky Sports.

He continued: ‘I don’t know what is their [Mercedes] plan, But for us we look after ourselves for next year, there’s lots of things changing so we’re quite busy ourselves, We’re very positive for next year.’
