Helmut Marko claims that Ferrari has hurt their chance of luring Sebastian Vettel into the cockpit of the Prancing Horse.
But outspoken Austrian Marko said: "Sebastian has the memory of an elephant. He logs everything.
Marko is referring to Ferrari's end-of-season suggestion that Vettel, 25, should be stripped of his latest title for overtaking illegally in Brazil late last month.
Marko claims Ferrari's charge was "below the belt", and that Vettel himself was unimpressed.
Vettel is quoted as saying: "You don't want to lose, but you still should know how to.
"You have to respect your opponent and recognise their good performances," he added.
