Vettel hopes situation is reversed at Monza and hints at future with the Scuderia

Sebastian Vettel had a tough race in Belgium despite his weekend having plenty of promise and the German has admitted he doesn't want to be in a similar position when Ferrari's home race comes around this weekend.

Charles Leclerc was significantly quicker than his teammate Vettel and the former Red Bull driver eventually finished fourth. Vettel hopes the roles are reversed at Monza.

“It is very important that we all work together, especially for the development of the car,” Vettel said at Ferrari's pre-Italy celebrations.

“Charles was stronger at Spa and I don’t like that obviously, but I hope the situation is reversed at Monza. He is very fast and there’s always something to learn.

“For a German, it is not possible to promise something, but I am very happy here, I feel at home, it’s a family," Vettel joked when he was asked to promise to win this weekend.

This has been one of Vettel's toughest seasons to date as he is yet to win a race and he sits fourth in the Drivers' Championship way off Lewis Hamilton. This has prompted speculation regarding his position in the sport but Vettel alluded to a future with the Scuderia, adding: “Whether I am going to continue? Why not?”
