Sebastian Vettel could be among the three drivers who have broken ranks and paid for their mandatory 2009 Superlicense credentials, according to reports in the German press.

The news website motorsport-magazin.com said Vettel, 21, is rumoured to have paid his fee to the governing FIA, contradicting the Grand Prix Drivers' Association's (GPDA) request that all drivers hold off amid their dispute over the rising costs.

At the Jerez test, the Red Bull driver is quoted to have told Auto Motor und Sport magazine: "What is more of a concern to us drivers is the way in which the FIA has dealt with us about this issue, rather than whether or not we are going to pay."
