Sebastian Vettel has made the right decision re-signing with Red Bull Racing, according to his former team boss Gerhard Berger.


Vettel first joined Red Bull Racing back in 2009 after a year and a half with Toro Rosso in which he claimed his maiden race victory at the 2008 Italian GP.

The German has reached great heights with Red Bull, winning three World Champions and 28 race victories.

There has, however, always been talk of a possible move to Ferrari with some suggestions he could head there sooner rather than later.

But instead of paving the way for that to happen, Vettel has extended his Red Bull contract until the end of 2015.

"Sebastian knows very well that he has the perfect environment and the best car," Berger told the Österreich newspaper.

"It is a thousand times better to be a five times World Champion with Red Bull than not win once with Ferrari.

"He might think later about Ferrari should they again have a winning car."

But while Vettel is staying put, his team-mate Mark Webber could be on his way out at the end of this season with Berger saying he'd put Kimi Raikkonen in the car.

"I like Kimi," said the Austrian. "He is the coolest of them all and last year surprised me with his strong comeback. He would be a good option."
