Webber downplays Ferrari switch rumours

Mark Webber has poured cold water on speculation that he will sign for Ferrari for 2013. Rumours abound that he will replace incumbent Felipe Massa on a short-term deal, with Ferrari's long term ambition being to put rising star Sergio Perez in one of it's cars. The Aussie said: "Sergio was flavour of the month last week for the Ferrari drive; now it's me", adding "I haven't signed anything. My focus is on this team".

Wise to be cautious Webber, why take a chance at Ferrari on a short-term deal when you could jeopardise a relationship with Red Bull who have rewarded your 5 years of loyal service with a long-term... sorry I forgot, how long does your Red Bull contract run to again?
wibbah   Mark Webber
Flamin' stoked to be linked to Ferrari Michael but I am totally focused on doing my best for Red Bull.
Horner   Christian Horner
Mark is a very valued support to Seb's success Michael. He is on a one-year rolling contract. Red Bull's position on this is that out of loyalty to Mark and what he has done for the team, we would not be opposed to anyone taking him off our hands.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Crikey Christian, a bloke deserves a fair shake of the stick mate. I've done a bonzer job for Red Bull over the last 5 years.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Good idea not to show your hand too early anyway Webber. If you tell Red Bull you're moving on they might shut you out of any new car development so that you won't bring any of Newey's secrets with you to another team.
wibbah   Mark Webber
They can't do that Michael, I have a fair dinkum contract promising me equal equipment to my teammate as long as I am in the team.
Horner   Christian Horner
Actually Michael, while Mark's contract says that he has a Red Bull with identical specification to perfect Seb's, the precise vintage of Seb's car in that context is a little less strictly defined. Adrian and I have had a policy to run the newest parts on Seb's car for at least 6 months before we transfer them to the sister car of Mark. This is to cover reliability issues so we ensure we can at least bag some consolation points if anything happens to Seb while he is leading.

Yesss! That's what I am talking about! See you Mark, I'll buy you an Italian dictionary. Ha ha. Yabba-dabba-dooooooooo!
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Greetings earthlings, what impudence is this that offends me? Who dares presume who is to be annointed by me to command my scarlet chariots?
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
President di Montezemelo, these rumours are most unfortunate. I have told Felipe he must improve but this speculation will only upset the special unity and loyalty of our Ferrari family.
Montezuma   Luca di Montezemolo
Silence puny servant. The loyalty of Ferrari is to thine Emperor. This weak child who brings failure to my court must be sacrificed. I will scour the heavens and the earth to find one worthy to share the company of the golden child Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Thank you Emperor, as much as I have tried to support my former teammate, Felipe continues to disgrace our precious marque. I humbly beseech you to find someone to help me glorify your name.
massa   Felipe Massa
You're an arse-licking twat Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Mmmm, bit embarrassing isn't it with all these people being linked to your seat Massa. Liza Minelli has a better chance of getting a Ferrari contract next year than you do.
Perez   Sergio Perez
Sergio like Ferrari, Sergio want Ferrari.
PSauber   Peter Sauber
Take it easy Sergio, you have a Ferrari engine, that is the best I can do for you right now.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Careful what you wish for Perez, life is complicated at Maranello, there's quite a bit of political chicanery required to get yourself that seat.
Perez   Sergio Perez
Huh?...chicane bad...Sergio like Ferrari....chicane bad...Sergio like Ferrari...chicane bad...
PSauber   Peter Sauber
Say Esses five times like the doctor told you Sergio. There are no chicanes involved. For Christ's sake Michael, I've spent a fortune on his psychotherapy after Monaco, I hope Ferrari realise what they might be taking on.
Kobayashi   Kamui Kobayashi
Be calm Perezsan. Take the words of the master into your heart and fear not. I will fight to the death to protect you as long as you remain loyal to Sensei Sauber, alas I cannot promise my soul to you if you succumb to the control of our Ferrari enemies.
