There is a lot of talk about Vettel's retirement. Some believe that this could happen soon. In an interview for motorsport, Vettel opened his soul and responded to such stories. "I would give you an answer if I really knew, but at the moment I don't, and it's probably realistic to be patient and wait a little bit," Vettel said, as quoted by motorsport "That could be a couple of weeks.
That could be longer than that. Again, time will tell. "Nothing has changed to what I mentioned in the last three weeks or prior three races. "I'm not in a rush. I want to make sure that I make the right decision for myself, and then take it from there."
It seems that Vettel will have a hard time deciding what is best for him, but he thinks it will still be a good decision "The fact that I have been around for a long time helps as I know a lot of people," Vettel said.
"But I think the most important thing for me is that whatever the decision will be it will be the right one for me. You can never been 100% certain as only time will tell, but I think as much as I can I would like to control and make sure that the conclusion for me is the right decision.
"I never believe that good things are to be rushed and so things will take time. I cannot give a specific answer on when, as much as I cannot give a specific answer to what. "But obviously what is at stake is remaining in F1 or not and as I said on that time will tell.
It is a new situation and I don't think in terms of negotiations skills I need to pull tricks out of my sleeve. "It is true that it is a new situation and a new challenge, because it is probably a decision about remaining or doing something different."
He says he feels good and that his time is still not over "I've made it quite clear that given the right package etc, I have a lot more to give," Vettel said. "I feel physically, driving, and so on, I'm no worse than I have been in the years I have been in Formula 1 before.
I feel very good, and there's a lot to give. "It depends on what the options are, and looking for the future, there's the big rule change in 2022, which might be very exciting or might not be. I think we don't know sitting here now.
"You always hope for the better, and as a fan of the sport, I hope so too. Whether I'll be there or not, I don't know."
