Oct.11 - Sebastian Vettel says he is not thinking about his retirement from F1.
When asked if he could do the same if he wins a fifth title, which would be his first for Ferrari, Vettel told Playboy: "I haven't thought about it.
"I see it as an extremely big decision, not something spontaneous."
Vettel takes issue with Rosberg's reasoning that he decided to retire in order to have a quieter life.
"I see him running from one appointment to the next," said the German, referring to Rosberg's new ventures as Robert Kubica's manager and a part-time television pundit.
In contrast, Vettel says that when he has a free Sunday, "I lie down on the sofa".
But he admits that his job as a Ferrari driver skill excites him.
"I think everyone who has sat in a Ferrari feels that it is something very special," said Vettel.
Asked if could imagine switching to another team, especially if he succeeds in winning a title in red, the 30-year-old answered: "I don't know. I haven't become champion with Ferrari yet."
Vettel also defended his character, with some saying his temper too often boils over.
"I am who I am," said the former Red Bull driver. "And I love what I do."
