Another chapter in the Vettel-Mercedes rumor: Niki Lauda may have denied any Mercedes move on Vettel, but Helmut Marko doesn't believe a word of it. Ah, those Austrians...

The unofficial 'silly season' has officially hit F1, as talk of a move to Mercedes for world champion Sebastian Vettel buzzes the paddock.

The rumour went full circle in the space of a couple of days, with Mercedes' Niki Lauda trying his best on Friday to bring it to a swift halt.

Niki has three opinions: one in the morning, one at noon and one in the evening.

"Unfortunately, Niki has three opinions: one in the morning, one at noon and one in the evening," he said.
