Vettel updates everyone on his future… again!


Speculation around Sebastian Vettel's future continues, and the Ferrari driver continues to deliver the same answer to those who question him about his plans for 2020.

A disappointing season so far for the Scuderia coupled with the frustrations linked to events of late - his controversial Canadian Grand Prix penalty - have left Vettel disheartened.

The German recently said that Formula 1 was no longer "the sport I fell in love with". But ahead of this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix, Vettel clarified his comments and moved to dispel any doubt about his future.

"To answer that, it’s as a child I think you fall in love with the cars and the drivers - not literally but… even though I had posters of Michael in my room!

"But you had the admiration for what these drivers do, the cars and how fast they go and so on.

"As a child you’re very pure, you’re not thinking about rules.

"I was never interested if they were overweight or underweight or legal or illegal, it didn’t matter as a child I just loved to see them racing. I think that’s what I tried to express."

As far as the four-time world champion is concerned, he'll be on the grid next season.

"I love racing," Vettel added. “I think the cars are great fun to drive, they’re very fast - the fastest we’ve ever had. Can we do better? I think yes. Is it up to me? Fortunately not.

"But, as I said before, we’ll see what the future brings.

"But I’m here now and as far as I know I’ll be here next year, so I’m not thinking about that."
