Sebastian Vettel returned to the important plans of the Formula 1, after the podium obtained in the Grand Prix of Turkey. The German started in the middle of the peloton and in just one lap he was in fourth place in the classifier. Again, he found the talent that crowned him four times as World Champion. However, in the last hours he brought forward the date of the retreat and surprised everyone.
In an interview with the German newspaper ‘Die Zeit’, Vettel assured that although he has an approximate date of retirement, he hopes it will not be in the nearest future. In addition, he did a review of what his season with the team has been Ferrari, which had a small light in the darkness of the last races.
Vettel confirmed that he will not run for many more years, but he did understand that it will be before his 40th birthday. “Now I am 33, I will be on the track for three more years, but I really do not want to continue in the competition when I am 40. So if you do the math, I have three to seven years active in Formula 1,” he said the German.
In addition, he admitted that the treatment between him and Ferrari is no longer the same as that of his arrival. “This season has been very difficult and I admit that I have even come to doubt my own abilities. I have not reached anything this year and the relationship with the team is not easy either. The adventure is over, but I’m still motivated »,
To close, the four-time champion said that what is coming for his career is very exciting, although he anticipates that it will not be in the short term. «I still hope a lot from the remaining races, but I think the new project with Aston martin it opens up many possibilities for me. We will not be able to achieve success quickly, but I am sure I will be in a different mood, and with a new goal, “he said.
