Sebastian Vettel tipped to become the highest paid sportsman

The present season has not yet been the best for Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull this year but he is tippd to make an impact in the next season. He will be expected to as he is ready to make a historic move to Ferrari in the 2015 season. Vettel has been associated with Red Bull for quite some time. But with Fernando Alonso leaving their team Ferrari was keen on roping him in. They have offered him reportedly eighty million dollars which will make him the highest paid sportsperson ever. The boxer Floyd Mayweather is presently the highest paid athlete but it is dependent on his fights. Sebastian Vettel will be leading the race as far as the players are involved in a complete season. He will be leading the likes of Christiano Ronaldo which is quite unusual for a driver in Formula One to do.

Chritian Horner, the chief of Ferrari confirmed the deal in a recent interview. Sebastian Vettel has won four consecutive championships and dominated the sport for quite some time but this year he has not been able to repeat the same form. By joining Ferrari he will be again dreaming big as he tries to follow the footsteps of his fellow countryman and legend Michael Schumacher. The vacancy left by Vettel in Red Bull will be filled up by the young Daniil Kvyat who will be trying to make a mark in the championship come next year. Vettel said that he was not running away from Red Bull and had several fond memories there but he is taking a professional decision. The teams will be trying to move on as there is no respite in this highly contested sport. The immediate challenge at hand is the inaugural Russian Grand Prix to which everyone is looking forward to.
