Nonetheless, Vettel said before leaving Suzuka: "I will not leave Ferrari.

"I'm part of the team and I want that to be the case and nothing else," Germany's Auto Bild quotes him as saying.

"I think we have a lot of potential. Of course, the last races did not go well for us and we made it too easy for Mercedes. But even so the spirit within the team is good."

However, Vettel acknowledges that the championship is now looking all but mathematically impossible.

"We will give everything and there are still important things we can learn and understand about the car," he said.
