Sebastian Vettel insists he is not considering retiring from Formula 1 at the end of the 2019 season.

Various reports emerged over the last number of days claiming that the four-time world champion is set to leave F1 at the end of the year.

Vettel has had an underwhelming start to the year as Ferrari has fallen behind rivals Mercedes, allowing the German manufacturer to take six consecutive victories.

The Maranello squad also failed to dethrone the Silver Arrows in 2018, as Vettel took on Lewis Hamilton for the drivers' championship only to be defeated after a series of mishaps in the second half of the year.

Vettel's current contract with Ferrari runs up until the end of the 2020 campaign, but despite that, some media outlets claimed that Vettel is now considering his future in the sport beyond 2019.

However, Vettel denies that he is set to hang up his helmet at the end of the season.

“I have no plans to stop,” he told Auto BIld. “I still have lots of fun, and I still have something to do at Ferrari.”

“We want to try everything again this season to bring about the turnaround and the Canadian Grand Prix should be the beginning."

Vettel's last race win came at last year's Belgian Grand Prix, while his last pole was before that - at his home event in Germany.
