Charles Leclerc has played down the possibility of teammate Sebastian Vettel retiring at the end of the season.

Rumours have suggested that the German is considering his future due to a combination of frustrations with today’s Formula 1 and the ongoing failure to succeed at Ferrari.

“I don’t see him quitting. I can’t speak for him, but he looks more motivated than ever and he works hard to do his best for the team,” he told Germany’s Bild. “It’s nice to see how he works. I think he’s good dealing with the pressure because there is always pressure after you have won so many titles.

“Even if I beat him, that is no reason for him to stop.”
