Sebastian Vettel on Tuesday said he is reluctant to weigh into the budget cap row that threatens Formula One's very future.

The 21-year-old German's team, Red Bull Racing, is among the so-called 'rebels' that are threatening to pull out of the sport if the FIA does not revoke its budget cap rules for 2010.

"As drivers we simply have to wait and see," Shanghai winner Vettel, who sits 18 points behind championship leader Jenson Button in the drivers' standings, is quoted as saying by the Austrian press.

He did admit, however, that - particularly from a driver's perspective - it is important a reasonable solution to the stand-off is found.

"For us all it is essential that we have a cockpit: in Formula One," said Vettel.
