There's no doubt it has been a tough time in recent races for Sebastian Vettel and the red cars of legendary team Ferrari.

In the last few races, unfortunately down to reliability issues and bad luck at Singapore and Japan, a lead in the Formula 1 World Championship over Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton has evaporated to now looking like a hopeless defeat.

Hamilton can now win the championship once more at the United States Grand Prix, a track he's been historically brilliant at before, leading to the question about the German's future in the sport.

Unsurprisingly, comparisons have been drawn between Vettel and his countryman Nico Rosberg, who decided after taking his first World Championship last season, he would retire from racing.

When thinking towards a fifth world title, whenever it may come, the German has talked about the comparisons with Rosberg.

He said: "I see it as an extremely big decision, not something spontaneous. 

"I see him [Rosberg] running from one appointment to the next."

Vettel is referring to Rosberg deciding to take up more television responsibilities, with him joining the Sky Sports team covering the Japanese Grand Prix last race.

Vettel isn't thinking about that sort of career just yet, as he still has an excitement about being a Ferrari driver. 


"I think everyone who has sat in a Ferrari feels that it is something very special, I am who I am, and I love what I do."

Despite the promising start to the season for Vettel and Ferrari, it ultimately looks like they will come up short against Mercedes once more.

With rule changes and developments for 2019 season, it could well be interesting to see how the Italian team will complete next year.

Regardless of this, at the minute it is clear that Vettel is determined to become the best in the world once more, and he wants to do it from the seat of a Ferrari.
