“It was something special that identified Monaco. Funny things are dying, that’s probably why it’s been shortened to three days. It was fun, so let’s not do it anymore…

“I’m kidding, but I don’t understand why the format has changed. I think it was one of the characteristics of Monaco,” the four-time champion stated.

Future prospects

Vettel signed a new contract with Aston Martin, which means he will race for them next season. Recently, Aston Martin announced that they expect to be title contenders in 4-5 years. Vettel gave his thoughts on that statement of intent, saying he hopes to be there when they are at that level.

“The vision and commitment of the team are impressive, so it may take less time, but at the moment, what gives me confidence is to see where the team is going and the determination they have in wanting to do it. Only time will give us the answer.”
