According to the German pilot, he intends to play in the championship for more than one season.

Sebastian Vettel made his F1 debut back in 2007 and has since won 53 Grand Prix and four championship titles. Now the driver is 33, he is one of the four oldest participants in the championship (behind Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton and Romain Grosjean) – and is not yet ready to leave the Grand Prix.

In an interview with Die Ziet, Cebu was asked a direct question – how long does it plan to go to the start.

“I still have great motivation,” Vettel replied. “Now I’m 33 years old, and I want to stop performing at 40”.

From next season, the German will change the team and move from Ferrari to the new Aston Martin project, which will replace the current Racing Point.

“This year is going to be difficult for me,” admitted Vettel, who only at the recent Turkish Grand Prix for the first time in 2020 climbed the podium. – And I must say frankly: I have not achieved anything.

The situation is far from simple. Our mutual love with Ferrari is left behind. “

The rider is currently in 13th place in the individual with three Grand Prix to the end of the season. Not once in his entire career, having spent a full season in F1, did he finish it below the eighth position.
