This. I must confess the source had me wondering the validity if any of the article.

Considering RBR said there was little to no chance of Vettel coming back there prior to him signing for Aston, I see why that story from that website has a lot of doubt about it.

Well, when your site is named MAXimumf1.com of course it is about Max!

Seriously, I do wonder if that site existed prior to Max joining F1?

So I looked at the maximumf1.com article. It is attributed to be based upon content from sport1.de. So I look there. I can't find any article that gives the quotes from the maximumf1.com site, but I don't really doubt it exists. I just don't think I found it. I did find an article that does talk about Marko and why he didn't sign Vettel. And that article seems to be be attributed to be based upon content from motorsport-total.com. We are now two or three layers deep in what seems to be the "telephone game" method of writing F1 articles. In that someone creates an initial source and then subsequently (and usually more and more minor) F1 sites re-write the article using their own particular slant.

https://www.motorsport-total.com/for...egbar-20122401

In the linked article above. Mark says as much as steve nielsen says above. Which is that RBR didn't sign Vettel because he was already signed. Also note some of the last comments in the article (Google translation from German to English)

Given that Marko said the above, does that sound like someone who really wanted Vettel at RBR or is he just trying to be nice and polite by not speaking ill of a former driver who brought championships to his team? I think that is Marko being as polite and as nice as he is able to be and RBR had zero intention of bringing Vettel back.

Well, I did say "nice as he can be". I think he probably was trying really hard.
