Vettel’s brother plays down F1 hopes

May 15 (GMM) Sebastian Vettel’s younger brother has played down suggestions he is aiming for Formula 1.

We reported in March that the younger Vettel had this year become a Mercedes driver in the ADAC GT Masters series.

But Fabian Vettel, who is 20, denied that he is on the trajectory to join his Ferrari-driving brother in F1.

“I can say no. I would have to be in another kind of series to make my way in that direction,” he told DPA news agency.

“You never know where it’s going, but at the moment I’m still quite new to all of this so I have to do my own thing,” Vettel jr added.
