Sebastian Vettel is weighing up his long-term future in Formula 1. Vettel has a £36m-a-year contract with Ferrari, which expires at the end of next season.
Vettel remained tight-lipped on his long-term future in F1.
“I don’t know at the moment,” he said. “I am not going to be in Formula 1 as long as Bernie was that’s for sure, but I hope I am going to be as fit and sharp as he is today when I am 88.
“I love driving, I love the sensation of speed, and I love fighting these guys. There are a lot of things I like at the moment and things I would miss, so that is why it is not an option to quit tomorrow. But the contract is just a piece of paper. We will see what happens.”
Vettel ended Mercedes’ 2019 one-two streak in Monaco after he was promoted to P2 as a result of Max Verstappen’s five-second penalty.
That also lifted him above Verstappen to P3 in the Drivers’ Championship, but 55 points behind leader Lewis Hamilton.
