Sebastian Vettel reveals retirement plans

Sebastian Vettel says he has no plans to retire, he still wants that first World title as a Ferrari driver.

Vettel says he never considered throwing in the towel.

“Not really or no, the answer is no!” he told Sport Bild.

“Because throwing in the towel would mean dropping everything and giving it up. No, because of my goal, my dream is to become a Ferrari World Champion.It also motivates me that Ferrari is the biggest brand in Formula 1. For me, it would, therefore, be the ultimate if I could win the World title with Ferrari.”

Pressed on whether he ever has thoughts of retiring, the 31-year-old insists he still has a few years in him.

“I think it’s clear that I’m not in the spring of my career anymore,” he replied.

“On the other hand, at 31 I still have plenty of time in this sport. Looking back, Michael was even a bit older than me when he won his first title with Ferrari. And Lewis is two years older than me. I still have no thoughts of retiring. On the contrary, I’m doing everything to fulfil my dream of the title with Ferrari. And as far as my family is concerned, they support me and don’t get in the way.”
