Four time Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel “doubts” he will be racing in F1 at age 40.

Asked if he enjoyed racing enough to be on the grid at aged 40, Vettel told Sport Bild “Not in Formula One”.

“You should never say never, but the main thing is that I am happy. We will see when that is.”

“I currently have that with my job, but I don’t imagine I’ll be in Formula 1 in eight years.”

In terms of his Formula One future beyond 2020, Vettel has stated he is targeting a new deal with Ferrari.

“I believe that it is simply the most important team in Formula 1. Winning here feels different to winning anywhere else,” said Vettel.

“There are no signs and no reasons why I couldn’t or shouldn’t continue,” Vettel told Sport Bild.

“I don’t think I have to be afraid that I can’t or won’t be there next year.”

Vettel’s target of reaching a new deal with Ferrari is complicated by the blistering performance of Charles Leclerc last season; such performances handed Leclerc an unprecedented 5 year deal with Ferrari that runs through 2024.

It is not controversial to state that Ferrari view Leclerc as their future, where Vettel fits in this future however, is unclear.
