At the Monaco Grand Prix , speculation arose that Vettel, 31, could retire at the end of the season.
But he has set the record straight by insisting he wants to continue leading Ferrari in his preview of the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.
“I have no plans to stop Formula 1,” Vettel told Auto Bild.
“We want to try everything again this season to bring about the turnaround and the GP of Canada should be the beginning,” he added.
“Our car is good, but we’re still getting to know it.
“We are finding it harder this season to find the best way to work with the tyres which has been better for the others. “We are learning every day, and this knowledge also benefits us to build the car for next season.”
Ferrari chief Mattia Binotto also pointed out Ferrari’s struggles in his pre-race briefing.
“We know that we are not competitive enough, and we are not bringing any changes to the car that have a significant impact on our problems,” he said. However, Canada presents us with other challenges in the areas of top speed, braking efficiency and traction than last and we want to try to leave the mistakes of the last races behind.”
