Sebastian Vettel, left, and Fernando Alonso will not be teammates anytime soon.
Ferrari "denied reports of a possible signing of F1 world champion SEBASTIAN VETTEL
to the 'prancing horse,'" according to KICKER.de. The BBC Monday reported that Vettel "will join Ferrari for the '14 season and replace Brazilian FELIPE MASSA
whose contract will not be extended and expires at the end of the '13 season." Ferrari "denied the reports immediately." As long as FERNANDO ALONSO
drives for Ferrari until '16, there will not be an equal driver as a teammate of the Spaniard. Ferrari Chair Luca di Montezemolo said, "Over the last 20 years, I've always said that I don't want to have two roosters in a chicken coop." He added: "I don't want two stars because I don't want problems and rivalry. It only creates tensions and imbalance in the team." In addition, Montezemolo said, "The driver question is currently the one that matters to us the least." Montezemolo also denied rumors about a possible signing of Red Bull engineer and designer ADRIAN NEWEY
to Ferrari. Montezemolo said, "Adrian is great, but we have a great amount of trust in our engineers. We also can win without him" (KICKER.de, 10/15
