Webber denies Ferrari rumours

by Michelle Fortune , 02 May 2012

Mark Webber has moved to distance himself from the rumours linking him with a move to Ferrari.

Webber's future at Red Bull is determined on a year-by-year basis due to his rolling contract and his ability to leave at the end of the season coupled with his good start to the campaign has seen him linked with Felipe Massa' seat at Ferrari.

Massa's future at Ferrari remains up in the air due to his ongoing struggle for form and the speculation surrounding Webber is just the latest in a long line of rumours about his possible replacements.

Only last month Sergio Perez was believed to be at the top of the queue to replace the Brazilian, possibly before the end of the season, but Spanish media reported earlier this week that Webber would join Ferrari in 2014 with Perez taking his seat in 2014.

Webber insists there is no truth in the rumours and he has assured Red Bull fans that he will not be going anywhere just yet.

"Sergio was flavour of the month last week for the Ferrari drive; now it's me," he is quoted as saying by ESPNF1.

"I'm focusing 100% on this season and doing the best job for myself and Red Bull Racing. I'm not putting any energy into anything else.

"There's a whole season ahead of us before we need to think about the future. One day the talk is about Jenson (Button joining Ferrari), then it's Sergio, now it's me. I haven't signed anything.

"My focus is on this team; we've had a good start to the season, we're only four races down and the road is very, very, very long before we start talking about the future."
