Vettel not going anywhere until he's done what he needs to do

Sebastian Vettel has insisted he is not going to leave Ferrari until he has achieved what needs to be done at the Italian side.

Vettel's current contract expires at the end of the 2020 season, and the four-time world champion has every intention of seeing the deal out with Scuderia.

The German has a new team-mate in the form of Charles Leclerc - with many tipping the former Sauber driver to really test Vettel in his first season with Ferrari.

"It's quite known that my contract goes until 2020 so, don't expect anything else," Vettel told the media, as quoted by"I'm very happy here. Obviously my goal is to win the championship.

"We were not getting as close as we want, so there's still a job to do, and I feel that's my mission and the reason why I'm here, for myself, for the team. 

"Obviously, I like driving, I love driving, I've got a great passion for driving, but on top of that I've got a great passion for this team, for Ferrari, inspired throughout my whole childhood.

"For me, it's pretty clear what I'm here to do."

Vettel lost out again to Mercedes superstar Lewis Hamilton last season - as he clinched his fifth world championship and continued the Silver Arrows' dominance of recent Formula 1.
