Sebastian Vettel may be “flattered” by Ferrari’s high opinion of him but insists he is “very happy” at Red Bull Racing.

The German is once again being linked to a Ferrari race-seat after the Italian stable’s team boss Stefano Domenicali said he believes Vettel and Fernando Alonso could make a good pairing.

“I think they are both intelligent guys and they could easily coexist together,” the Italian told Auto Bild.

Vettel, though, says that while it’s “nice” to receive comments like that, he’s still happy with Red Bull Racing.

“It’s very nice to hear that. I respect Ferrari a lot, I respect Fernando a lot. I see it as a compliment,” the reigning World Champ said.

“I’m flattered, obviously. I’ve always said that Ferrari is a great team with a great history, a great tradition, in Formula 1 in particular.

“But as I’ve said before, I’m very happy with where I am at the moment.”
