The signs that suggest Vettel isn't about to retire
Sebastian Vettel gave on honest assessment that he "must do better" in the 2020 Formula 1 season. These aren't the words of a driver about to give up, as some have suggested, and there are other signs that he is determined to recover his best form
Sebastian Vettel neither sounds like a driver who is about to walk away from Formula 1 - he mocked suggestions it was his last race after finishing fifth in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – nor looks like one.
We can't be sure what's going on in the depths of his mind – and he could yet surprise us – but, while his 2019 campaign was disappointing and at times blundersome, it wasn't that of a driver who's lost the determination and desire to be in F1.
