Wouldn’t Vettel have stopped with a more powerful car?

Sebastian Vettel’s F1 career will be over in just over a month. Now he’s talking about the next time – and he thinks, for special reasons, that “no one will remember me.” The 35-year-old also suffers on his end, because everything would have turned out differently with a better car.

Sebastian Vettel expects to be forgotten as a Formula 1 driver. “I once heard someone say, ‘You will only remember until the last to remember you dies.’ Let me put it this way: The UK has a new king, but it’s not the first King Charles – there were two Two others before him. Do you remember them? Probably not. There is a limit,” Vettel said in a published article interview from his Aston Martin team.

“There will probably come a point where no one will remember me,” the 35-year-old said. “Nothing lasts forever.” Vettel will end his F1 career at the end of this season after four world championships and currently 53 Grand Prix victories.

“I thought about it”

Would Vettel have continued his career with a more powerful car? “I don’t know,” Heppenheimer said. “Would I quit if I had been too competitive in the past three or four years: I won races, I fought for championships – maybe I won again?” “Maybe I would have come to the same decision, maybe not. It’s impossible to say, but I thought about it.”

Vettel won all the world titles with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013. In 2015 he moved to Ferrari to emulate his idol Michael Schumacher and start a new era in Scuderia. Vettel failed, in 2021 he moved to Aston Martin.

“Finishing 10th doesn’t make me happy because I know what it means to be first. When you’re not the first time, you get really excited the first time you finish 10th. But I’m glad I didn’t get to run the last Formula 1 race in 20,” Vettel said. November in Abu Dhabi.
