Due to retire at season end, Sebastian Vettel admits that he would consider donning his race suit again for another outing at Suzuka.

Ever the purist, the four-time world champion has made no secret of his love for the circuit, and asked if he would consider returning in another category, such as Super GT or Super Formula, he replied: "I guess they are racing in Suzuka as well... I don't know... never say never.

"It is a great track for many, many reasons," he continued, "and yeah, who knows what the future brings.

"Obviously I love driving and I think around this track I always felt very alive and the passion felt or feels very very alive. So yeah, we will see what type of car maybe in the future will come up."

Sitting alongside him at the press conference were Fernando Alonso, Yuki Tsunoda, Kevin Magnussen and Nicholas Latifi, and looking around him, Vettel, a four-time winner here, said: "Maybe if one of these guys in the future races here and feels a bit sick, I don't know, I don't wish them to, but I wouldn't mind jumping back in for a race at Suzuka at any time.

"Obviously we will see what the future brings," he added. "At the moment I have no plans but I think there are some exciting races happening in Japan and we'll see.

"One race, one-race career in the future," he smiled. "Yeah, if anybody is happy to sign up a driver for a single race... I'm sure those guys wouldn't be happy to step aside but that would be something I'd seriously consider."

"Growing up I had an Eldon slot car set. The Japan circuit layout was basically Suzuka. Always one of the best."
