Vettel might move to Ferrari, Marko or no Marko. Folks said Hamilton was career McLaren and that didn't last. Where Massa is back again, and Perez (a former Ferrari backed driver) went to a different team, I could see there being a pre-contract of some sort existing that would have him alongside Alonso in 2014.
As to Mark, every time there's a falling out, or the illusion of one, between Webber and Red Bull folks start speculating as to where he could go. It's obvious that he isn't exactly fond of Vet, but he's stayed on where he is, when other options existed, so I have to think he can't be that unhappy. He is driving a top car for a winning team, which appears to be worth something to him.
If the final breakup is imminent, I can't imagine where he'd hop off to that would be worth it, from his perspective, at this late stage in his career. Lotus (if Grosjean falters again)? Swapping with Massa (for a drive and team pecking order position pretty well the same as the one he has now, only with the possibility of better working relationship with his teammate)? To one of the mid to lower ranked teams for 2014, where he'd have to fight his way around in a slower car? I'm not sure he will even choose to stay in F1 post Red Bull.
